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.

About the E2V CCD 77 Grade 1, Back-Illuminated Midband Sensor...


This version of the CCD77 family of sensors has full-frame architecture. Back illumination technology, in combination with extremely low noise amplifiers, makes the device well suited to the most demanding scientific applications. To improve the sensitivity further, the CCD is manufactured without anti- blooming structures.

This device has a single serial output register. Separate charge detection circuits are incorporated at each end of the register, which is split so that a line of charge can be transferred to either output, or split between the two.

The register is provided with a drain and control gate along the outer edge of the channel for charge dump purposes. The sensor is made using e2v technologies’ Advanced Inverted Mode process to minimize dark current, allowing the device to be operated with extended integration periods and minimal cooling.
