Image intensifiers capture events at UV through NIR wavelengths

Extensive triggering facilities and a comprehensive programmable timing range allow the SIL-2 family of gated image intensifier systems to be readily interfaced to most manufacturers' high-speed cameras and high-speed video systems.

OCTOBER 16, 2008--Extensive triggering facilities and a comprehensive programmable timing range allow the SIL-2 family of gated image intensifier systems to be readily interfaced to most manufacturers' high-speed cameras and high-speed video systems. A quartz input window enables the SIL-2 to capture events that emit radiation at the shorter wavelengths of the UV region right through to the near infrared. Triggered synchronously at high speed, the image intensifiers allow fast framing rates and short exposure times for investigating rapidly evolving, low-light processes. An integral mechanical capping shutter is included to provide additional protection for the sensitive image intensifier. Operating parameters can be locally programmed from the local keypad and menu-driven software or remotely from a PC via Ethernet link, which also allows archiving and loading of timing setups.

PRESS RELEASE

26th AUGUST 2008:

Improving the sensitivity of high speed video & ultra-high speed framing cameras...

Specialised Imaging Ltd. have introduced the new SIL-2 family of high performance, gated image intensifier systems to improve the sensitivity, gating time and spectral response and scope of operation of both high-speed video and ultra-high-speed framing cameras.

Extensive triggering facilities and a comprehensive programmable timing range allow the SIL-2 to be readily interfaced to most any manufacturer's high-speed cameras, and in particular to high-speed video systems. Constructed around high gain MCP intensifiers these units provide an unmatched range of sensitivity, gain and resolution options to satisfy even the most demanding low light imaging applications. Incorporating a quartz input window enables the SIL-2 to capture events that emit radiation at the shorter wavelengths of the UV region right through to the Near Infrared.

Triggered synchronously at high speed, the SIL-2 image intensifiers allow the fast framing rates and short exposure times necessary to investigate rapidly evolving, low light processes such as occur in automotive combustion research, high-voltage breakdown studies, flow visualisation studies as well as fluorescence and chemiluminescence recording of biological events.

The compact SIL-2 has been designed in 2 parts to enhance ease of use and simplify interfacing to almost any high-speed electronic or video camera. An integral mechanical capping shutter is included to provide additional protection for the sensitive image intensifier. The comprehensive range of operating parameters are can be locally programmed from the intuitive local keypad and powerful menu driven software or remotely from a remote PC via Ethernet link, which also allows archiving and loading of timing set-ups. With electronics refined to interface to a wide range of camera and gating inputs the SIL-2 enables shortening of effective frame exposure times thus arresting high-speed motion blurring effects.

Specialised Imaging Ltd. is a knowledgeable, dynamic company focused upon design, manufacture, service and supply of ultra high-speed imaging systems and components for industrial, military and scientific applications.
