Product introduction:

         PX4040B is a new generation of refrigeration camera of PixelX, which is assembled with 4K x 4K scientific CMOS image sensor with high resolution of 16.9 megapixels. Using multi-channel readout technology, the image output frame rate can reach more than 10fps, and the ultra-low readout noise of 3.7 electrons can be achieved. The unique performance of PX4040B scientific CMOS camera makes it very suitable for low earth orbit target observation, high-energy time-domain astronomy, wavefront sensor and other fields. In addition, PX4040B is assembled with air cooling and water cooling, which has excellent low-temperature refrigeration performance. The function of external GPS can accurately record each exposure time of the camera and provide accurate time scale for subsequent data processing.
