The NEW iKon-XL is a unique TE-cooled, very large area CCD camera platform, accommodating outstanding field of view sensors that are ideally suited to long exposure astronomy applications. Patent-pending ColdSpace™ technology cools a back-illuminated 16.8 Megapixel sensor (e2v) down to -100 °C, avoiding the requirement for liquid nitrogen or unreliable cryo coolers. Extended Dynamic Range technology is complemented by up to 18-bit digitization capability.
The iKon-L is a superb 4 Megapixel, high-sensitivity CCD platform, delivering superb QE, low noise, high dynamic range and large field of view. This platform is used widely across astronomy and weak luminescence detection applications.
The iKon-M platform includes a 1 Megapixel NIR-enhanced Deep Depletion model, ideal for Bose-Einstein Condensation. The iKon-M ‘PV Inspector’ has been designed specifically for Photovoltaic Inspection.
NEW Dual AR Extended Range sensor options offer unparalleled back-illuminated QE performance across the broadest possible wavelength range, spanning UV to NIR.
