The P-Series high-speed linear photodiode array imagers from PerkinElmer, and available through Pacer, provide an extended spectral range, centre-split, dual channel readout, and ultra-low image lag.

The features of high-sensitivity photodiode array detection and high-speed charge-coupled scanning combine in this new range, which offers low noise, impressive charge storage capacity and lag-free dynamic imaging in a convenient dual-output architecture. Images are reproduced with minimum information loss and artefact generation. The unique photodiode structure provides excellent blue response extending below 400nm and into the ultraviolet. P-Series line array imagers come in standard array lengths of 2048 and 4096 elements, featuring either glass or UV-enhanced fused silica glass. The two-phase CCD readout register requires only 5V clocking. The imagers feature 14┬Ám square pixels with 100 per cent fill factor, and an 80MHz pixel data rate (line rates to 37kHz). Samples are available from Pacer International.

P-Series imagers suit high speed document reading, web inspection, mail sorting, product measurement and gauging, position sensing, spectroscopy, parcel sorting, surface inspection, e.g. flat-panels and bar code reading.
