Photon Focus HD1

The camera series HD1-D1312(IE) is based on the Photonfocus CMOS image sensors A1312 and A1312IE, the NIR enhanced version of the A1312. The sensor A1312(IE) has an additional feature to widen the dynamic range. It is possible to expose the odd and even lines independently and choose also a independent sensor response curve. This enables different LinLog® settings for each field. The Photonfocus CMOS sensors with a full well capacity (FWC) of 90 ke- are optimized for high dynamic range applications and a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The cameras have the CameraLink Base and GigE interface. Two camera models with different speed grades are available.
