High Dynamic Range 2-Monochrome CCDs Camera

The AD-081CL is a 2CCD high dynamic range camera with programmable exposure from 20μs to 33ms and 11-step preset shutter from 1/60s to 1/50000s.

The AD-081CL can provide more than double the dynamic range of standard CCD cameras (up to ~120 dB) but in a linear fashion that avoids the noise, shutter, and compression issues found in typical CMOS-based logarithmic or LinLog™ high dynamic range cameras.
