About the QSI 600 Series Cameras
The QSI 600 Series builds on the foundation of the popular QSI 500 Series. Dual read rates of up to 8 MHz with high-speed USB 2.0 and full 16-bit output allow 600 Series cameras to produce high quality images with high frame rates, extremely wide dynamic range, excellent linearity and exceptionally low noise. Cooling on the 600 Series is achieved with a custom 2-stage TEC supporting regulated cooling to greater than 45C, or greater than 50C with the option Liquid Heat Exchanger.
The superb imaging performance of 600 Series cameras is wrapped in an attractive, compact design with outstanding power efficiency and investment protecting upgradeability. The refined engineering and impressive fit, finish and attention to detail will surpass your highest expectations.
QSI's 690WS includes both a mechanical and digital shutter. A mechanical shutter has the benefit of allowing for calibration frames to be shot, unattended and are more accurate than digital calibration frames. Also included is an 8 position filter wheel for 1.25" filters of your choice. Filters are not included in this package.
