Penguin 600CL & 150CL - COOLED CCD Digital Camera Systems

The Penguin 600CL & Penguin 150CL are the most sophisticated Digital Camera Systems in Pixera's product range, with outstanding image quality, excellent sensitivity , and they are simple to use. Designed specifically for the most demanding imaging requirements, both systems feature a Peltier cooling device for long exposure times, reducing the CCD operating temperature by 20oC compared with a non-cooled condition. Coupled with advanced frame averaging and integration functions, the system will enable you to capture fluorescence and darkfield images with reduced thermal noise. Unlike other digital camera systems which increase resolution using software interpolation, the Penguin 600CL allows for a true optical resolution of 5.8 million pixels using Pixera's proprietary DiRactorTM, light-swing opto-mechanical technology. The Penguin 150CL offers you up to 1.5 Million Pixels.

Either system will provide you with very high image quality, 24/48-bit RGB color, excellent sensitivity and dynamic range. When you need the absolute highest image quality and resolution for archiving, digital zoom in, and publishing, the Penguin 600CL with maximum 5.8 million pixel resolution is your best choice.

Up to 15 frames per second color viewfinder at 640x480 pixels including a focus indicator makes it very easy to focus.

All of Penguin 600CL & Penguin 150CL pre-exposure default settings are adjustable via easy controls and indicators in the Viewfinder application. The settings can be saved and pre-loaded.

The optional Hand Switch or Foot Switch allows the user to remotely capture images without moving attention away from the microscope.
