i-Nova Camera PLB-Mx Mono

The series cameras PLxCam designed specifically for astrophotography. They are particularly sensitive to light and were equipped with electronics and software that are optimized for applications in astronomy back.

  • For the cameras of the series its own software has been developed that makes full use of its potential and is intuitive to use: PLxCapture
  • The integrated circuit with specific IC (FPGA) significantly reduces the noise.
  • There are three speeds for reading the chip: High speed for planetary, sun, moon and Photography; half speed to the readout noise to reduce; 1/4 speed for DeepSky recordings and improved visual mode with minimal readout noise.
  • During long-term exposure, the non-essential elements of the electronics are set to the power saving mode, which reduces the heating of these components and hence the thermal noise.
  • The cameras are equipped with an interface that allows communication with an optional GPS module or a regulated cooling system.
  • It is possible to connect multiple cameras to a PC and to control each camera on an instance of PLxCapture software or an autoguiding software.
  • The PLxCapture software works in client-server mode. Several configurations are possible: PLxCapture in server mode and the sequencer module in client mode; multiple cameras on multiple PCs, can be controlled by a third party (for example, via an Internet browser).
  • The SDK (Software Development Kit) is available on request from the manufacturer for programming (Microsoft C # or C + +) available.

The PLxCam series offers a variety of camera s for various applications and budgets.
