C-RED 2 is a revolutionary ultra high speed low noise Short Wave Infrared camera, able to run at 600 fps with less than 30 electrons readout noise. To achieve this performance, C-RED 2 integrates a 640 x 512 InGaAs PIN Photodiode detector with 15 μm pixel pitch for high resolution, which embeds an electronic shutter with integration pulses shorter than 5 μs.

C-RED 2 offers dark optimization for long exposure times up to 60 seconds and High Dynamic Range: 93 dB and true 16 bits. Designed for high-end low light SWIR applications, C-RED 2 offers new opportunities for science, research and industry.
