The iKon-XL ‘SO’ very large area series offers a 16.8 MP, high resolution sensor platform with superb sensitivity and dynamic range up to 18-bit for challenging low-light direct X-Ray detection. It offers an extremely convenient platform with maintenance-free thermoelectric cooling down -75ºC as well as USB3 and long-distance direct fibre optic connectivity.
Andor’s iKon-XL ‘SO’ is a TE-cooled, very large area CCD camera platform, accommodating big field of view sensors that are ideally suited to low light X-Ray imaging applications. It thermoelectrically cools back-illuminated 16.8 Megapixel sensors (e2v) down to -75°C, avoiding inconvenient maintenance-intensive LN2 cooling interface or unreliable cryo coolers. Extended Dynamic Range technology is complemented by up to 18-bit digitization. Flexible connectivity is standard through either USB 3.0 or a long distance direct fibre optic interface. iKon-XL is a high quality, robust and ‘hassle-free’ detector solution.
Open-front end - DN160CF / 8” CF / CF-203 rotatable flange and knife-edge sealing provided as standard for direct interfacing to vacuum chambers
61.4 x 61.7 mm sensor - Very large field of view for extended imaging capabilities
15 x 15 µm pixel size - Ideal balance of dynamic range and resolution
Peak QE over 95% - High photon collection efficiency for maximising SNR
Thermo-electric cooling down to -75°C - Effective dark current and pixel blemish without the inconvenience of liquid nitrogen (LN2)
Low noise readout - Intelligent low-noise electronics offer the most ‘silent’ system noise
Fibre-optic or USB 3.0 interface flexibility - Built-in robust plug and play interface options as standard. Fibre optic for long distance solution
