Technical Specs:

The standard 532 model camera employs a Kodak KAF-3200ME 3.2 megapixel Enhanced Response full-frame CCD image sensor with microlens technology. The KAF-3200ME sensor has a photoactive array of 2184W x 1472H pixels. It has excellent quantum efficiency between 350nm and 1000nm with significant enhancement at the blue end of the spectrum. Low dark current and high pixel charge capacity result in a dynamic range exceeding 77db. The sensor employs a true two-phase charge transfer technology with a transparent gate that significantly increases optical response compared to traditional front illuminated full frame sensors. Micro lenses cover the surface of the CCD to focus the light through the transparent gate to further increase optical response.

An optional KAF-3200E image sensor is available. It does not include micro lenses but is otherwise identical to the standard image sensor. The chart above illustrates the difference in quantum efficiency between these two CCD image sensors.

Both types of CCD image senor are available as either Class 1, or Class 2. A Class 1 imager has very stringent limits on possible pixel defects while a Class 2 relaxes these limits somewhat for a lower cost. All 532 cameras employ a Class 2 CCD imager as standard and can be upgraded to a Class 1 at the time of purchase.

The KAF-0402ME sensor has a photoactive array of 768W x 512H pixels. It has excellent quantum efficiency between 350nm and 1000nm with significant enhancement at the blue end of the spectrum. Low dark current and high pixel charge capacity result in a dynamic range exceeding 76db. The sensor employs a true two-phase charge transfer technology with a transparent gate that significantly increases optical response compared to traditional front illuminated full frame sensors. Micro lenses cover the surface of the CCD to focus the light through the transparent gate to further increase optical response

QSI 516 Scientific Cooled Monochrome CCD Camera

Linux drivers and API

Two other CCD configurations are optionally available. The KAF-1603E image sensor does not include micro lenses but is otherwise identical to the standard image sensor. A KAF-1602LE with anti-blooming protection is also available. Anti-blooming prevents charge spillover into adjacent pixels under high illumination. This protection technology consumes about 30% of the pixel area with a proportional decrease in saturation signal and quantum efficiency. The chart above illustrates the difference in quantum efficiency between these three CCD imager sensors.
