Falcon III XO – Open Front X-Ray

Fastest Scientific X-ray camera on the market


The only high energy direct X-Ray using a 1MP Frame Transfer EMCCD sensor. The Falcon III XO offers a combination of speed and sensitivity for soft X-Ray applications up to 20KeV. The camera runs at 31.5fps in full resolution, fasted with ROI and binning. It offers <1e- readout noise using EM Gain. The Falcon III XO is available with options on cooling, as well as a selection of CF flanges.
