Apogee Aspen CG230 - 1

High Performance Cooled CCD Camera System ANDOR an Oxford Instruments company Typical _ Applications •/ Sky Surveys </ Radiology.' Apogee Aspen CG230: Compact, 4.2 Megapixel CCD Ideally suited to challenging astronomy and physical science imaging applications, the Apogee Aspen family offers a range of popular full frame CCD sensors, within a camera platform that is designed to push performance. Deep thermoelectric cooling ensures optimal sensitivity for long exposure applications. The simple convenience of a USB 2.0 interface is accompanied by an Ethernet network interface with a built-in web server. The Apogee Aspen also utilizes a new extremely high reliability shutter, specified for > 5 million shutter cycles. The Aspen CG230 uses a large format 4.2 megapixel back-illuminated sensor with large 15 mm pixels and very high QE (96% @ 550nm) )to maximize sensitivity. Cooling down to 60oC below ambient results in a low dark current contribution. These features make the Aspen CG230 an ideal solution for applications requiring both a large field of view and optimal signal to noise ratio, such as sky surveys and radiology. • High Resolution Sensor 4.2 Megapixel sensor with 15 mm pixels delivers an exceptionally large field of view with high resolution. • Programmable TE cooling down to 60oC below ambient Ideal for detection of weak chemiluminescence or astronomy images, enabling long exposure acquisitions with optimized signal to noise ratio. • Ethernet interface with built-in web server Remote access and control over the Internet, via standard web browser. • USB 2.0 interface Direct ‘Plug and Play’ simplicity of USB 2.0. • 16-Bit digitization High photometric accuracy. • High longevity shutter Shutter during readout and take dark reference frames - 58 mm. Specified for >5 million cycles. • Programmable I/O port Synchronization with intricate experimental set-ups. • Remote Triggering LVTTL input allows exposure to start within 25 microseconds of the rising edge of the trigger. • Focusing mode Faster readout option, ideal for focus optimisation.
