Its incredible performance of 10 electrons RON with air cooling, can be further improved with liquid cooling (no LN). The camera manages the cooling automatically, no human assistance is needed.
No other InGaAs camera has ever obtained such a level of performance: it is usually reserved to higher end HgCdTe cryogenically cooled cameras, making C-RED 2 unique compared to its competitors.
Operating on a wavelength from 0.9 to 1.7 µm, the camera has a very good quantum efficiency of 70%. C-RED 2 also offers windowing possibilities and Region of Interest, which allow the camera to go even faster if needed.
The software allows real time applications, and the interface is CameraLink full and Superspeed USB3. It is also designed to be updated remotely.
C-RED 2 is easily embeddable in any system thanks to its low volume, and can operate in any environment or complex situations.
Smart, compact, with a state of the art cooling system, C-RED 2 is offering the fastest acquisition rate of all InGaAs SWIR cameras for a very sensitive high resolution imaging.
