The ORCA-03 and ORCA-05 digital CCD cameras offer high sensitivity, low noise, and multipurpose versatility at an affordable price. Both cameras contain the ER-150 CCD, a progressive scan interline CCD chip with 1344 (H) x 1024 (V) pixels. Each square pixel measures 6.45 µm per side, ensuring high-resolution imaging. In addition, the CCD has high sensitivity in the visible and NIR regions, making the cameras suitable for both bright fluorescence and NIR-DIC. Other features include an anti-blooming function.
The ORCA-03 is a cooled CCD camera, so long exposures up to 10 seconds are possible. This camera has an IEEE1394 interface and 14.7 MHz readout at 12 bits. The frame rate ranges from 8.9 frames/sec to 43.0 frames/sec. Additional features include a low readout noise of only 6 electrons and a wide dynamic range.
The ORCA-05 uncooled CCD camera is available as two models. The C8484-05C has a Camera Link interface and 20 MHz readout at 12 bits. Its frame rate ranges from 12.2 frames/sec to 68.4 frames/sec. The C8484-05G01 has an IEEE1394 interface and 14.7 MHz readout at 12 bits. Its frame rate ranges from 8.9 frames/sec to 43 frames/sec. Both models have a moderate readout noise of 10 electrons and a wide dynamic range.
