Intensified Cameras

dicam pro

This is a high performance intensified CCD camera system with gating times down to 3 ns. With its 12 bit dynamic range and a high resolution CCD image sensor it features an excellent signal-to-noise-ratio and the ability of single photon detection. The system is suited for applications in environments with high electromagnetic disturbances. A high speed serial fiber optic data link connects the system to the PC. The camera can be triggered by light or electrical input.
