Hawk 252

High Resolution, Ultra Sensitive Digital EMCCD Camera


Cooled HD EMCCD Camera offering back-illuminated EMCCD technology, enabling ultimate sensitivity imaging (<50μlux). The Hawk 252 offers high QE of greater than 95% at 600nm. It offers GEN III image intensifier performance and enhanced blue response from 180nm for low light UV with visible detection. The Hawk 252 offers fanless cooling which is ideal for integration and discrete low light surveillance.
