USB2.0 3648-Pixel 16-bit CCD Line Camera with External Trigger, Enclosed

Mightex’s TCE-1304-U line camera is a cost-effective high-performance B/W enclosed line camera, based on a single-line, 3648-pixel CCD chip with USB2.0 (480 Mb/s) interface. CCD line cameras have several advantages over their area-array counterparts, including high optical linear resolution that allows systems developers to use the cameras to capture two-dimensional (2-D) images by moving the object or the CCD perpendicularly to the scan line. TCE-1304-U is a compact line-scan camera ideal for a variety of OEM applications such as industry process control, optical spectroscopy and bio-medical imaging etc.. Setting up the TCE-1304-U line camera is very easy: one simply needs to install the camera’s application software into any PC, and then connect the line camera to the PC using a USB cable. There is no need to install a DAC card or to use an external power supply.

TCE-1304-UW camera is the window-less version of TCE-1304-U, with the glass window removed from the image sensor. Therefore, the former is more sensitive to UV and is more suitable for applications that involve coherent light sources.
