ZephIR 1.7 - Deeply Cooled InGaAs Camera

Photon etc: ZephIR 1.7

The ZephIR 1.7 is a high-end, scientific grade, 640 x 512 pixels resolution, InGaAs camera that marries performance with reliability. It is one of the most sensitive and dependable InGaAs cameras on the market featuring extremely low noise levels, high efficiency, and a rapid frame rate compatible with an external trigger. This is made possible by a combination of state-of-the-art control electronics and a four stage thermoelectric cooler (TEC) which can maintain an operating temperature as low as -80 °C. The TEC, in turn, uses forced air cooling which requires none of the maintenance of a water or liquid nitrogen chilled unit.
