Apogee Aspen CG1600 (KAI-16000)

Aspen is the newest in design innovation from Apogee Imaging Systems. Aspen increases cooling performance in a smaller package, improves stray light baffling, adds a Network interface with a built-in web server, supports dual output CCDs up to 16mHz and sets a new standard in shutter reliability. The Aspen CG16000 has a 16-megapixel interline transfer sensor with high quantum efficiency. Low noise and small pixels are ideal for OEM applications, biological and physical sciences. All Aspen systems are backed by a 2-year warranty on the camera and lifetime warranty on the CCD chamber integrity.
