QSI 616 Cooled Digital Camera

The QSI 616 from Quantum Scientific Imaging, Inc. has a larger 1.6 megapixel full-frame sensor utilizing the same advanced CCD technology as in the QSI 604 for high quantum efficiency and builds on the foundation of the popular QSI 500 Series.

Dual read rates of up to 8 MHz with high-speed USB 2.0 and full 16-bit output allow 600 Series cameras to produce high quality images with high frame rates, extremely wide dynamic range, excellent linearity and exceptionally low noise.

Cooling on the 600 Series is achieved with a custom 2-stage TEC supporting regulated cooling to greater than 45C, or greater than 50C with the option Liquid Heat Exchanger.

The QSI 600 Series has seven different models employing a comprehensive range of monochrome and single-shot color scientific grade CCDs up to 8.3mp.

The superb imaging performance of 600 Series cameras is wrapped in an attractive, compact design with outstanding power efficiency and investment protecting upgradeability.

The refined engineering and impressive fit, finish and attention to detail will surpass your highest expectations.
