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 CG77 has a back-illuminated large pixel format CCD with deep dynamic range. The CG77 is well suited to spectroscopy, TDI imaging and telescopes with long focal lengths. The standard midband coating (CG77-MB) has the highest peak in the visible; the optional UV-enhanced version (CG77-UV) has the highest QE in the UV. 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
