sCMOS Sensitivity

The low noise and high quantum efficiency across a wide range of wavelengths produces higher quality images with lower exposure times than conventional CCD cameras.

Programmable Scan Mode image

Advanced Triggering

Programmable Scan Mode provides increased control over the rolling shutter exposure and read-out functionality of CMOS sensors by providing access to the sensor timing settings to allow optimization around applications that require control over the line time.
