FLI ProLine 16803 with CenterLine 10 Position CFW CCD Camera with Filter
The ProLine Imaging System product series by FLI offers new features and raises the standards for the CCD imaging market. Among these features, FLI has taken their research and incorporated it into their products that resulted in flexible downloading speeds, cooling base control, and hermetrically-sealed chambers for the CCD chip. These CCD cameras by FLI are equipped with materials such as aluminum and heat sinks that assist them from wear and tear, even in very harsh conditions. In addition, the electricity components of these ProLine CCD cameras are protected with very high quality coatings to prevent electrical fallouts.
FLI is more than pleased to announce record breaking download speeds at 12 mega-pixels per second! Now, when using ProLine CCD Camera, images can now be downloaded to your personal computer in one second! With a 65°C temperature and cooling system, it is possible to operate your CCD between -30°C and 35°C range of dark frame currents. While an optional liquid cooling system is provided, it isn’t necessary as it was before!
Since CCD Cameras transmit information through USB ports to the PC, it is extremely easy for the information to get distorted due to CPU performance, speed, RAM availability, and disk integrity. Inside the FLI ProLine CCD, there are memory modules that retain volatile memory to increase the speed and accuracy of data transmitted to the PC. Because of this, the astrophotographer can now choose what speed they want for data transmission. In the ProLine imaging sensor, there is an alignment that is perpendicular to the optical path to insure the entire frame is focused properly.
ProLine sets the standards in key performance areas that include: Download Speeds, Cooling, Low Noise Operation, Anti-Ghosting Technology, Image Quality, and Linearity.
