pco.edge 5.5 Camera

The pco.edge 5.5 camera is equipped with an innovative scientific CMOS sensor (sCMOS) providing crisp images and precise measurements. The pco.edge series can be optionally upgraded with a water cooling system. The pco.edge 5.5 camera system is designed for users who require high resolution and high frame rates. The camera has 16 bit dynamic range, good quantum efficiency, selectable shutter options or an optional color sensor. The monochrome or color camera is available with camera link, USB3 or Camera Link HS.
