Choosing the Right Camera There are many factors to consider when selecting a digital camera. On the following pages we will explain the most important criteria in a digital camera system. Understanding these camera parameters will ensure the digital camera you select will best satisfy the requirements of your application. Sensitivity The sensitivity of a camera is a measure of its ability to detect the lowest light level. Cameras with high sensitivity are best because they can be used in a wider range of applications. The graphs below represent the camera's response to both the visible...

Cooling the sensor in a digital camera results in lower dark current. Typically, relative dark current is halved for every 7°C drop in sensor temperature. Noise is any unwanted signal either from the captured light, called photon shot noise, or added by the imaging process. Noise can be related to the camera's electronics, or to its sensor, where it can be classified as noise from the readout amplifier or thermal noise resulting from the sensor's temperature. A camera with low noise is ideal for applications with a wide range of illumination conditions. MEGAPLUS cameras are designed to...

MEGAPLUS EM cameras in a line MEGAPLUS EM cameras in a 2x2 stack Miniature EM11000 cameras can easily be installed in space-constrained environments. Since a single controller can operate multiple cameras, these cameras are also ideal when image acquisition needs to be tightly synchronized. Reliability Reliability begins with design, and is incorporated into every camera detail. MEGAPLUS cameras are ready to tackle the harshest environments - from precise thermal management contained in the rugged housing, to grueling tests conducted by our expert engineers and production managers, to...
