Andor’s iKon-XL ‘SO’ is a TE-cooled, very large area CCD camera platform, accommodating big field of view sensors that are ideally suited to low light X-Ray imaging applications. It thermoelectrically cools back-illuminated 16.8 Megapixel sensors (e2v) down to -80°C, avoiding inconvenient maintenance-intensive LN2 cooling interface or unreliable cryo coolers. Extended Dynamic Range technology is complemented by up to 18-bit digitization. Flexible connectivity is standard through either USB 3.0 or a long distance direct fibre optic interface. (0919 R1).
