Description

The QHY163M/C camera has 4/3inch, 16mega pixel size CMOS sensor. It has both mono and color version, USB3.0 interface, 23FPS@16mp full resolution output, and 30FPS@4K HD video output.
 
The QHY163M/C has very low readout noise and 8/12bit ADC. With a two stage TEC cooler the typical maximum delta T is 40°C below ambient. It has a fully airproof CMOS chamber and an electric heater for the optic window to prevent dew issues.
 
128MB DDR Buffer
The QHY163M/C has a built-in 128MB DDRII image buffer. Which helps with large image data transfer, preventing the frame lost under long exposure and lets the camera run smoothly in some low speed computers or if it is connected to a USB2.0 port.
 
Full Anti-Dew Solution
With more than ten years experience og cooled CCD camera design, the QHYCCD applies the full anti-dew technology to the QHY163 including the fully air proof CMOS chamber with silicon gel tube socket and the CMOS window heater. With these technologies you do not need to worry about dew forming on either the CMOS sensor or the optic windows, even in a high humidity environment.
