The Condor-1000 CS is a three channel camera based on unique separation prism technology developed by Quest for all its prism based cameras. This technology allows the camera to provide complete images at full resolution and full frame rate for all three channels.
The Condor-1000 C3-PCH-285 uses three Sony ICX285 sensors, one with an RGB Bayer filter array and two monochrome.
Optical channel configuration:
|Channel 1||RGB Bayer (400-690nm)|
|Channel 2||NIR1 (690-830nm)|
|Channel 3||NIR2 (830-1000nm)|
The camera is available with the following interfaces
|GigaBit Ethernet:||Condor-1000 C3-PCH-285-GE|
|Fiber Optic:||Condor-1000 C3-PCH-285-FO|
The Sony ICX285 CCD sensor is a diagonal 11mm (Type 2/3) interline CCD solid-state image sensor with a square pixel array. High sensitivity and low smear are achieved through the adoption of EXview HAD CCD technology. Progressive scan allows all pixels' signals to be output independently within approximately 1/15 second. Also, the adoption of high frame rate readout mode supports 60 frames per second. This chip features an electronic shutter with variable charge-storage time which makes it possible to realize full-frame still images without a mechanical shutter.
High resolution and high color reproductively are achieved through the use of R, G, B primary color mosaic filters.
The Condor-1000 cameras include a full-featured image acquisition, processing, analysis and display suite, Architector.
