Hamamatsu Video Camera & Control Unit

The C2741 Hamamatsu Video Camera is designed for image processing and measurement purposes. The control unit uses functions to improve video quality including contrast enhancement and video inversion. This rental package includes a NI PCI-1405 video frame grabber board with partial image acquisition and programmable gain. The frame grabber is restricted to operating on a system that runs Windows XP/NT/2000. If you are not running one of these versions of Windows, a video converter is included in the package and outputs to VGA, S-Video, or RCA. An Aspherical Lens Kit is included for table-top optical setups but is not designed to mate with the video camera.
