General Description
The VS4-1845 is a high resolution high gain Generation III Microchannel Plate (MCP) Image
Intensifier optically coupled using a high efficiency lens for use in very low light quantitative
imaging. The VS4-1845 is coupled to a Digital or Analog video camera via a C-Mount lens
output. F-Mount output is available as an option. The output format is fixed for either a 1/2",
2/3” camera. Optional 1” camera support available. The use of the special Generation III
Image Intensifier in the VS4-1845 results in quantum efficiency three times over other
intensifiers in the visible spectrum.
The VS4-1845 is designed for use in applications where input to output intensity linearity is
required for rigorous quantification of input intensity. Over-exposure protection is included.
The VS4-1845 is pre-adjusted for maximum gain and calibrated for use with a Windows™
operated control. A GUI allows the user to adjust the Gain, Gate and Gate Delay.
The VS4-1845 comes complete with instruction manual, intensifier control software (for
Windows™), cables, and power supply ready to operate.
