INDIGO IMAGING | 43 MEGAPIXEL sCMOS
The Indigo Imaging IDG-4500 is one of the most advanced industrial cameras available. The new 43 megapixel GPIXEL MAX 0806 sensor is the highest sCMOS sensor available. sCMOS means scientific CMOS - which characteristics are very low read noise, low dark current, and very good images. The global shutter provides excellent stopping power for moving objects, avoiding motion blur. The industry standard Cameralink interface allows up to 10 FPS and is Genicam compatible. The Dynamic Range is 68.3 db and there is a Wide Dynamic Range mode where the darkest shadows and the brightest areas both can be imaged with 78 dB. The camera is available with either an f-mount or an M58 thread mount. Size is 80 mm x 80 mm x 107 mm with a weight of 650g.
The camera has IO capability with RS-232 interface for applications requiring lens control. This sCMOS camera is well suited for the following industrial applications: flat panel display inspection, microscopy, semi conductor wafer inspection, astronomy and life sciences. Vision Systems Technology is a North American authorized distributor of Indigo Imaging digital cameras.
WHAT IS sCMOS?
Scientific CMOS, or sCMOS, is a breakthrough technology based on next-generation CMOS Image Sensor (CIS) design and fabrication techniques. sCMOS is poised for widespread recognition as a true scientific grade CIS, capable of out-performing most scientific imaging devices on the market today. This is a result of an advanced set of performance features that render it absolutely ideal to high fidelity, quantitative scientific measurement.
sCMOS technology stands alone in its ability to simultaneously deliver on many key performance parameters, overcoming the 'trade-offs' that are inherent to current scientific imaging technology standards, and eradicating the performance drawbacks that have traditionally been associated with conventional CMOS sensors.
Unlike previous generations of CMOS and CCD-based sensors, sCMOS is uniquely capable of simultaneously offering:
- Extremely low noise
- Rapid frame rates
- Wide dynamic range
- High resolution
- Large field of view
