QHY550P Cooled Monochrome Polarized Camera

Starting Price: $2,999.00
Price as Configured: $2,999.00
Brand: QHYCCD / SKU: QHY-550P (110062)

The QHY550 has the 2/3-inch SONY 5.0mega pixel IMX250 Global shutter CMOS sensor. Besides the monochrome version it has a special polarized version. QHY550 has a built-in two stage TEC cooler. It can cool the sensor to -35C below ambient. This can reduce the dark current of IMX250 significantly--greatly improving the dark signal detect performance. This is especially true for detecting the tiny differences of the polarized light which is necessary for astronomy, life science and optical lab.

With the on-pixel four direction polarize filter, the QHY-550P can capture the polarized image at only one exposure. No need change the polarize filter three times. It can generate the polarized video at 68FPS high frame rate. Polarization detector can be used in industry image to detect the scratch, transmissible object and getting the no-reflection pictures. In gemstone, geology and material science, biology science it also has important applications.

Since the polarizer is formed during the semiconductor process, form and formulation of polarizer, uniformity, mass productivity and durability are excellent compared to conventional polarization sensors. Furthermore, the polarization sensor is covered with an anti-reflection layer which helps to reduce reflectance and avoids poor flare and ghost characteristics.
