    FLI ProLine PL1001E Monochrome Grade 2 CCD Camera with 63.5 mm Shutter

    The ProLine Imaging System sets a new standard in CCD camera performance and flexibility. As FLI's flagship imaging system, the Proline cameras feature user selectable download speeds, choice of cooling base configurations, and a separate hermetically-sealed chamber for the CCD and electronics. Every major component of the ProLine is CNC machined to ensure a long life in the most demanding conditions. The ProLine base / heat sink, shutter housing and front flange are each machined from a single piece of high-grade aluminium. (Being part of the base assembly, even the ProLine fan cover is CNC machined!) The electrical printed circuit boards use only the highest quality components and are protected from harsh environment without the need for conformal coatings.

    Breaking new ground in download speeds, the ProLine provides the user with extremely fast user-selectable download speeds. You can download images at 12 mega-pixels per second for focusing. This means that an unbinned image can be downloaded to your PC in as little as 1 second! For imaging, the download time can be slowed to reduce the noise in the final image. The ProLine achieves a sustainable 65 degrees C cooling performance. This means you can operate your camera at -30 degrees C with ambient temperatures of up to 35 degrees C (84 degrees F) for lowest dark current and its attendant noise. No additional cooling or cooling sequence staging is necessary but a liquid cooling option is available to achieve a wider range.

    Conventional imaging cameras move the image data directly from the image sensor to the USB port, making them susceptible to added artifacts due to PC processing tasks, processor speed, and other PC-related issues. Each ProLine camera has an internal memory capacity so that the imaging chip can be quickly read out and downloaded to the PC. This allows the PC to take the image at whatever speed it is capable of without introducing any artifacts to the image. Through sophisticated design and production techniques, the ProLine image sensor is accurately aligned so that the imaging chip is perpendicular to the optical path without shims or other post-assembly adjustments. This is crucially important as chips get larger to insure the entire frame of your image is in focus.


    FLI ProLine CCD Camera Feature Overview

    • The ProLine standard window has the highest transmittance available (~97% to below 390 nm). Systems that require higher transmittance are supplied with windows with extended high transmittance to 180nm.
    • The ProLine shutter avoids the issue of particles falling from the shutter onto the sensor surface.
    • ProLine is setup with external triggering for those applications that require it.
    • The ProLine allows a user to power and connect an FLI focuser and filter wheel directly - avoiding long messy cables.
    • ProLine standard air cooled base provides up to 65 deg C differential.
    • Selectable download speeds up to 12 mega-pixels/seconds and On-board frame buffer standard.
    • CCD overscan capability, Field upgradeable firmware and USB 2.0 high speed serial interfaces.
    • Triple TEC Cooling for true, maintainable 65 degrees C cooling and separate hermetically-sealed chambers.
    • Electronics and sensor are back filled with medical-grade Argon.
    • Low noise, 16-bit operation and High tolerance sensor alignment and orthogonality.
    • 100% CNC Machined Sub-Assemblies with High Transmission camera windows (97%) and Custom window available with transmission below 200nm.

    The Kodak KAF-1001E is a 22.5mm diagonal (Type 4/3) high performance color full-frame CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor designed for a wide range of color image sensing applications including digital imaging. Each pixel contains blooming protection by means of a lateral overflow drain thereby preventing image corruption during high light level conditions.

    Each of the 5.4mm square pixels are patterned with an RGB mosaic color filter with overlying microlenses for improved color response and reproduction. A border of buffer and light-shielded pixels surrounds the photoactive pixels.

    FLI Proline Camera Options

    • Anti-Dew Technology (ADT) Option - Available for all Proline cameras with the 63.5mm shutter, so if you want this option on this camera, you will need to purchase the 63.5mm shutter option as well. In most environments, the temperature of camera window will be above the dew point. In some cases dew may form on the outside of the camera window due to the combination of high humidity, ambient temperature and the window temperature. The ADT corrects this problem, allowing for operation in very humid environments.
    • Standard Liquid Cooling Option: For applications that require the ultimate in cooling and/or require heat dissipation to occur away from the camera body.
    • This camera is also available with no mechanical shutter at a $400 price reduction. If you would prefer to order this camera with no mechanical shutter, please give us a call. 1-800-483-6287.
