About the FLI Proline Camera System

The FLI ProLine Imaging System is the new standard-bearer in CCD camera efficiency and flexibility. As the forerunner of FLI's imaging systems, Proline cameras provide user-defined download rates, cooling base configuration options, and an independent hermetically-sealed chamber for the CCD and electronics. All of the most important elements of the FLI Proline are CNC machined for longevity, even under the most stressful conditions. The ProLine base / heat sink, front flange, and shutter housing are each assembled from a lone fragment of high-grade aluminum. Since the Proline fan cover is also part of the base assembly, it too is CNC machined! Electrical printed circuit boards employ only top-of-the-line components and are shielded from severe atmospheric conditions, removing the need for conformal coatings.

By allowing the user to choose from an array of extremely fast download speeds, the Proline breaks new ground. For focusing, you can download images at 12 megapixels per second, meaning you can download an unbinned image to your PC in as little as as one second! With imaging in mind, the download rate can be decreased to reduce noise in the final image. The Proline will function at -30ºC with ambient temperatures reaching 35ºC (84ºF) for lowest dark current and its attendant noise, thanks to a continuous 55ºC cooling performance. Although additional cooling or cooling sequence is not needed, a liquid cooling option is available if a wider range is desired.

Traditional imaging cameras transfer image data directly from the sensor to the USB port, rendering them exposed to added artifacts due to PC-related concerns such as processing tasks and processor speed. Each FLI Proline CCD camera features internal memory capability, allowing the imaging chip to be read quickly and downloaded to your PC. Because of this, your PC can take the image at its own highest level of proficiency without introducing any unwanted visual anomalies. The Proline image sensor is precisely coordinated so that the imaging chip is perpendicular to the optical path without shims or other post-assembly corrections due to a sophisticated design and refined production methods. This is vital as chips get bigger to guarantee the entire frame of your image is in focus.
