16bit camera system WinCamD (CCD/USB2.0)
The WinCamD-system is the standard CCD system for laser beam analysis. It has an compact, high resolution 16-Bit digital camera. The camera features a 1.9 MPixel CCD-chip with 4.4 x 4.4 µm pixel size and 7.0 x 5.3 mm (1/1.8") full active area.
A complete system consists of the camera head, a USB2.0 interface, connecting cable (3 m) and software. The camera is powered via the USB port, so there is no need for an additional power supply.
The CCD version of the WinCamD product family is used mainly to measure small optical structures and spots of cw and pulsed lasers or other optical sources. Due to the high SNR is is also the best choise to measure the spatial distribution of very weak optical signals. Highlights
- 7.1 x 5.4 mm active chip area with 4.4x4.4 µm pixel, 1.9 MPixel
- Wavelength range from 355 nm to 1150 nm.
- Pulsed laser auto-trigger and synchronisation; TTL (In/Out)
- Exposure time manual or automatic between 40 µs and 1024 ms
- Variable active area on chip from 16x16 pixels
- Field-replacable CCD chip
- No external power supply needed
The camera is compatible with all C-mount optics/lenses. As standard, the camera comes without the faceplate in front of the chip. To protect the sensor chip and to eliminate ambient light, the cameras are delivered with a ND filter in a C-mount ring
. This low distortion face plate is carefully selected for laser applications and mounted at a certain angle in the mounting ring. To measure lasers of less than 400 nm wavelength, the filter has to be changed to a fused silica based attenuator.
Special UV- converter optics
(10 - 355nm) or an IR-version of the camera (up to -1360 nm or additional 1475 - 1600 nm) extend the application range of the system. As an option there is also an IR-converter optic
for the telecom wavelength range around 1550nm available.
A more detailed description or function list of the software
can be found in the introduction part.
