Compact design, strong sCMOS performance

superior image quality

The pco.panda heralds the start of a new sCMOS camera generation.

Advantages of the pco.panda 4.2 include flexible design with the latest sCMOS technology enabling you to use it in a wide range of applications. What does this mean for you? Universal application options thanks to an ultra-compact camera housing! Power and fast data transfer occur via a single USB 3.1 cable making an external power supply redundant.

You benefit from excellent image quality provided by the 16-bit sCMOS sensor with its high resolution and 6.5 x 6.5 µm² pixel size. High quantum efficiency and low readout noise are guaranteed.
