    QSI 660ws CCD Camera

    6.1mp Image Sensor

    2758×2208 sensor

    4.54µm pixel

    5 position internal filterwheel


    The QSI 660ws model camera employs a 6.1mp Sony CCD image sensor. This new generation of Sony sensors offers remarkable sensitivity with a peak QE of over 75%. The high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, dual read rates, low noise performance, and internal 5 position color filter wheels make the QSI 660 ideally suited to a broad range of demanding scientific, medical, astronomical, and industrial imaging applications.

    The QSI 660ws camera system is supported by industry-leading astronomy and microscopy image acquisition software plus a full camera control API is available for creating custom Windows or Linux applications.
