Two New USB Cameras Launched by Jenoptik Optical Systems

Jenoptik Optical Systems has rolled out two new USB camera types for the ProgRes CCD microscope camera series--the ProgRes SpeedXT core 5, and the ProgRes SpeedXT core 3.

ProgRes Camera

The company launched these two products to meet the increased needs of users in the scientific and industrial fields, for high image quality with enhanced speed. Both the products feature Jenoptik’s SpeedXT core technology.

The ProgRes SpeedXT core 3 camera offers 17 fps live image speed, at a maximum resolution of 2080 x 1542 pixels. The ProgRes SpeedXT core 5 provides 13 fps live image speed, at a resolution of 2580 x 1944 pixels. The cameras can attain higher frame rates in the region of 30 resp. 45 fps when maximum resolution is not needed.

Users of the cameras will profit from the optimized workflow because of the high resolution in combination with the 2-3 fold improvement on the image speed. The optimized workflow has the ability to focus and position specimens precisely and swiftly. A maximum exposure time of 180 sec assures optimum captured images, even under low-lighting conditions. The maximum color depth is 36 bit.

The cameras, when combined with a C-Mount connection, can be conveniently connected to any notebook, PC, or microscope, through the USB 2.0 interface. The ProgRes CapturePro image can be easily installed in the camera, allowing users to capture images in high-quality.
