Available in both color and monochrome versions, the CS505 series of scientificcamerasfrom Thorlabs feature a peak quantum efficiency of 79% at 600 nm with less than 2.5e- of RMS read noise, according to the company. The cameras are based on a 5 MPixel CMOS image sensor: The Sony IMX250LLR-C for the monochrome version and the Sony IMX250LQR-C sensor for the color version. This global shutter sensor features a 3.45 µm pixel size that achieves a frame rate of 35 fps at full resolution.

Measuring 2.38” x 2.78”, the camera has been designed to provide passive thermal management for the sensor, reducing dark current without the need for a cooling fan or thermoelectric cooler, according to Thorlabs. Additionally, the cameras come with a software suite that includes ThorCam (a Windows GUI) as well as support for third-party applications such as ImageJ/Micromanager, LabVIEW, MatLab, and a software development kit. Other features include USB 3.0 interface and a adjustable C-Mount adapter.
