The modules consist of two units, which are connected to each other via a flat cable. An interface pcb contains the complete driving electronics as well as all circuits for the USB interface. An additional small pcb is used, which is ideal for mounting the sensor separate from the sensor pcb.
These compact line camera modules from Spectronic Devices Ltd, which can be connected directly to the USB port of a computer, are ideal for the self-construction of spectrometers or for use as an OEM component in optical measuring instruments. Models are available for a number of popular CCD/CMOS linear sensors.

Eureca offers at extra cost for these camera boards many ways to increase the performance through modifications. Examples are the removal of glass covers from sensors or replacing it with a special filter. Similarly, a UV coating is possible in order to use the sensor in the ultraviolet spectral range. The installation in a housing is possible. By cooling the sensor and/or the entire camera, the readout noise can be minimized.
Please contact us if you are interested in the options available for a particular model and we will gladly advise you on the options available.
The software drivers are available as DLL, COM or ActiveX. Communication via the USB or RS232 port is also possible with a simple ASCII terminal. On request, the USB camera boards can be supplied with customized PID or VID. Such custom hardware allows the automatic identification and loading of specific software. The transfer rate of the recorded data is limited by the existing USB port. If the used USB port is slower than the pixel frequency of the camera, as many shots can be taken as the internal memory of the camera board can store. The USB camera boards are supplied with software drivers and a demonstration program. In addition, program examples for VisualC++, VisualBasic, Delphi and LabVIEW are included.
The following figures show the mechanical dimensions of the boards. Versions with CCD/CMOS sensors use a small sensor pcb. Here the light sensitive area of the sensor is always centered between the mounting holes of the sensor pcb. Please note that this may cause the housing to protrude beyond the sensor board on some sensors.
