Aspen is the newest in design innovation from Apogee Imaging Systems. Aspen increases cooling performance in a smaller package, improves stray light baffling, adds a Network interface with a built-in web server, supports dual output CCDs up to 16Mhz and sets a new standard in shutter reliability. The Aspen CG2000 and CG2000C have a 2-megapixel interline transfer sensor with high quantum efficiency and twice the dynamic range of similar Sony sensors. Low noise and small pixels are ideal for OEM applications, biological and physical sciences. The CG2000 uses the monochrome Truesense Imaging KAI-2020M CCD; the CG2000C uses the color KAI-2020CM. All Aspen systems are backed by a 2 year warranty on the camera and lifetime warranty on the CCD chamber integrity. 

Additional Features:

  • 32 MByte camera memory
  • Subarray readout and fast sequencing modes
  • Adjustable fan speed for low/zero vibration
  • General purpose programmable I/O port
  • Programmable status indicators
  • 32/64 bit ActiveX drivers included
  • Field upgradeable firmware
  • AR coated silica windows
  • Liquid cooling option
  • Precision locking filter wheels optional
