The L3 Camera is a state of the art very low light monochrome CCD video camera with standard CCIR output. It uses a highly sensitive imaging sensor mounted in a ceramic package with external peltier cooling giving it the ability to produce an image in lighting conditions down to starlight (100 µ lux).

This sensor package is able to create an eye friendly image with excellent resolution and detail in all light conditions. This sensor gives brilliant intrascene contrast (improved mid-band MTF) and extended spectral response (400 - 1060nm)

However it does not use image intensifying technology and so cannot be damaged if it is inadvertently exposed to normal lighting levels. This makes the L3 ideal for surveillance operations where the light level is likely to fluctuate greatly as well as creative applications such as nature photography.

The L3 runs from a 12V supply and is compatible with all standard video-based frame grabbers and TV monitors via a BNC video output. An LCP shutter can be fitted as an option. The unit is mounted within a robust metal case and has a standard 1 inch C-Mount lens mounting. Call us for suitable lenses to complement this product.
