The IFT800 is a sensitive low light level camera, based on an image
intensifier fibre-optically coupled to a frame transfer CCD sensor.
Programmable logic is used to implement several modes of operation.
Low light level performance:
In the standard video mode the camera acquires images at light levels
between 3 microlux and 0.5 lux. This range can be further extended
to lower light levels by applying the long time integration mode.
At high light levels the dynamic range can be extended to daylight
conditions by using an auto-iris lens.
High frame rate:
For applications that require a high frame rate, a sub-frame corresponding
to the region of interest, can be selected. The sub-frame rate is
inverse proportional to the number of TV lines within this region.
The choice of different types of image intensifiers that can be
applied in the IFT800 camera results in flexibility to satisfy customer
specifications, such as spectral sensitivity of the photocahtode,
gain, phosphor characteristics.
The IFT800 is a CCIR compatible intensified CCD camera. The camera
can be operated stand-alone when connected to a 12 V dc power supply
and a video monitor. Adjustments and connections are made on the
camera backpanel. The camera can be remotely controlled via the
DB25 “REMOTE?connector on the backpanel.
