Diagonal 8.35 mm (Type 1/2) Approx. 2.13M-Effective Pixel Color CMOS Image Sensor.
▶CMOS Image Sensor for Industrial Applications that Realizes High Sensitivity Approximately Twice That of the Existing Product
Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation has developed the CMOS image sensor “IMX385LQR” for industrial applications. This new image sensor realizes high sensitivity approximately twice that of the existing product (IMX185LQJ)*1.
The IMX385LQR pursues picture quality at low illuminance most needed by cameras for industrial applications and mounts pixels with a sensitivity of 2350 mV, which is the highest sensitivity among Sony image sensors for industrial applications*2. In addition, SNR1s of 0.13 lx*3, which is the highest performance among Sony Full HD-compatible image sensors for industrial applications, is achieved by mounting an internal programmable gain amplifier and high conversion gain pixels. Superior performance as an image sensor for industrial applications is further achieved by combining HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology with technology that improves sensitivity in the near-infrared light region.
ASI385MC-Cool offers very good performance for astrophotography. Low read noise, high dynamic range, QE peak >80%, AR protective window and much more.
ASI385MC-Cool has extremely low dark current, you can click here to see dark frame of ASI385 camera(HDR settings, 60s, -10°C).
USB 3.0 Port & USB2.0 HUB
USB 3.0 Port: can provide 5Gb bandwidth to let ASI385 run at 67 fps (12bit, normal mode) or 120 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution(2.13Mega).
USB 2.0 HUB: can connect with various accessories, such as filter wheel, guide camera and electronic focuser, so you can manage your cable better with USB2.0 hub. There are 2 short 0.5m USB2.0 cable come with ASI385MC-Cool. the power of hub source from external power supply if you connect it.
ASI385MC-Cool has 2 stage TEC cooling system to enable very deep cooling (40°C-45°C below ambient). you need external power supply to power on the cooler. AC-DC power adapter is not included in this package, you can order from here.
We recommends 12V at 3A~5A or more DC adapter for cooler power supply(2.1*5.5, center positive).
Battery from 9-15V is also suitable for cooling power supply.
