FLI - MicroLine Series - Sony ICX285AL Interline Monochrome CCD Camera (no shutter)

 

Goodbye Goliath! MicroLine is smaller and lighter-weight than the competition, but outperforms them in key areas such as noise, frame quality, download speeds, bit-depth, and CCD cooling.

FLI MicroLine CCD cameras feature fast download speeds that simply leave the competition behind. Each component of the FLI MicroLine camera is designed and manufactured for a long life in the most demanding conditions. All major components are CNC machined and you're looking at only the highest quality electrical components and circuit boards with logo, serial number and focal plane indicators laser-etched on the surface - not printed. FLI designed photo-etched stainless-steel shutters are field-serviceable should they ever encounter damage and the sensor is hermetically sealed from dust and moisture.


  • Sensor Cooling up to 65°C below ambient (air cooled)
  • Interline sensor operation at 12 MHz (16-bit)
  • Full frame sensor operation up to 12 MHz (16-bit)
  • Dual Super Coated AR Window - VIEW REFLECTANCE INFORMATION
  • Heavy weight performance in a 2.8 lbs package
  • Liquid or Air Cooled base
  • RBI Anti-Ghosting Technology standard
  • Video mode with interline sensors - focus and center images live!
  • Small Footprint (3.7 x 3.7 x 5in.)
  • Reaches operating temperatures in 5 minutes!

 

 

What sets FLI MicroLine CCD Cameras apart is their small form factor. At 3.7 x 3.7 x 5 inches (HWL), the FLI MicroLine is a small camera with big camera capabilities! The Microline improves upon the highly successful FLI MaxCam design in a number of key areas including cooling, download speeds, clear aperture, and sensor capability.

Now, let's talk about FLI MicroLine CCD Camera Cooling... The FLI MicroLine's robust cooling design achieves a sustainable cooling performance of 50-55 deg C below ambient. The camera's CCD can be operated at -30 deg C with typical room temperatures and without the need for water cooling or special cooling sequences. Simply set the MicroLine cooling where you want it and the camera will do the rest - quickly and worry-free.

Conventional imaging cameras move the image data directly from the image sensor to the USB port, making them susceptible to added artifacts due to PC processing tasks, processor speed, and other PC-related issues. The MicroLine avoids these issues with its internal frame buffer, thus allowing an image to be quickly read out and downloaded to the PC. This allows the PC to take the image at whatever speed it is capable of without introducing any artifacts to the image.

When it comes the FLI MicroLine, you get system compatibility and mounting options as well as mechanical shutter, liquid cooling, and Anti-Dew Technology options that will help you trick out your camera the way you want it. The MicroLine line of CCD cameras is compatible with all FLI imaging accessories, including the Precision line of Color Filter Wheels and Digital Focusers. MicroLine camera adapters are available for microscope, telescope and machine vision connectivity.

Features of MicroLine Cameras


Cooling

As a standard, all FLI cameras incorporate a TEC (Peltier) that enables the camera to cool the sensor. The actual cooling for any given camera will depend on the sensor size and ambient temperatures.
