Quantum Scientific Imaging - QSI RS 2.0ws-8 2.0mp Cooled CCD Camera w/Mechanical Shutter & CFW

* Required Fields



The QSI RS 2.0 model camera employs a 2 megapixel Kodak interline transfer CCD image sensor with microlens technology. The high quantum efficiency, wide dynamic range and low noise performance make the QSI RS 2.0 ideally suited to a broad range of demanding imaging applications. The QSI RS 2.0i includes the following:


  • Color 2.0mp Kodak KAI-2020M sensor
  • USB 2.0 High-Speed, 16-bit output
  • Dual read rates of 800kHz and 8MHz
  • Air cooling to 45C below ambient
  • Electronic shutter with shutter speeds down to .0001 sec
  • RS 2.0s model adds mechanical shutter for unattended calibration frames
  • RS 2.0ws(-8) model adds 5 or 8-position color filter wheel


Product Series

 Deep Cooled Scientific CCD Cameras

The QSI RS Series is designed for life science and research applications from UV to NIR wavelengths.Dual read rates of up to 8 MHz with high-speed USB 2.0, deep cooling to >45C below ambient and full 16-bit output allow QSI RS Series cameras to produce high quality images with high frame rates, extremely wide dynamic range, excellent linearity and exceptionally low noise.

RS series cameras are available with no-coverglass CCDs and a fused silica window for maximum transmission across a broad spectrum of light, from as low as 240nm up to 1100nm. Electronic input and output triggers with latency as low as 5µsec allow precise exposure timing and triggering of external events such as strobes. RS 4.2 and RS 2.0 models support Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) exposure mode for flow visualization with two exposures as close together as 5µsec.

Cooling on the RS Series is achieved with a custom 2-stage TEC supporting regulated cooling to >45C below ambient, or greater than 50C with the optional Liquid Heat Exchanger.
