Product Description

SBIG - STF-4070M -  4 Megapixel CCD Camera • Monochrome

We include custom adapters in an imaging package, complete turnkey imaging solutions to customers, no matter the kind of scope, camera, reducer, guider, or rotator customers happen to choose.

The STF-4070 has been optimized for fast full frame download and maximum cooling in an STF sized package. A high resolution 4 megapixel 16-bit frame will download in about 1/4 second using the dual channel readout mode. Even at this rapid download rate, the read noise remains exceptionally low, about 9e-.

The STF-4070 was developed primarily for the OEM market, particularly for microscopy applications where short exposures and high frame rates made possible by an electronic shutter are more desireable than having a mechanical shutter for automatic dark frames. Because of this, the STF-4070 cooling design is very robust and the camera is capable of a cooling delta greater than -50 degrees C.

The KAI-04070 Image Sensor is a 4-megapixel CCD in a 4/3" (21.4 mm diagonal) optical format. Based on the TRUESENSE 7.4 micron Interline Transfer CCD Platform, the sensor features broad dynamic range, excellent imaging performance, and a flexible readout architecture.
