Infrared CCD Monochrome Video Camera

The IR-1000 real-time (30fps) camera offers enhanced sensitivity across the entire visible and near IR spectrum, with a 5X increase in sensitivity at 900nm. Ideal for visible, IR-DIC and bright fluorescence modes of operation, the IR-1000 utilizes a 1/2" sensor and is c-mount adaptable. A ten-step grey scale test signal allows the user to quickly and correctly set the contrast and brightness on a monitor. Although this camera is widely used in a live mode connected directly to a monitor, an optional computer interface is available.

Key Features:

  • Real-time operation – 30fps
  • Automatic Contrast
  • Real-time Edge Enhancement
  • Wide Spectral Response (380nm – 1100nm)
  • High Sensitivity – Provides 5 times more sensitivity at 900nm
  • Wide Range Black Level – Increases image contrast by almost 100 times when using automatic gain and manual black level
  • On-Chip Integration – Allows for increased sensitivity. Can be used with stand-alone Investigator or qualified frame grabbers
  • Ten-Step Grey Scale Test Signal – Allows the user to quickly and correctly set the contrast and brightness on a monitor
