About the Starlight Xpress Trius SX-9

The Starlight Xpress Trius SX-9 USB Hub Monochrome CCD Camera utilizes a Sony ICX285 Sensor with 1.45 million pixels. Super low-noise performance with fast download times of approximately 2 million pixels per second. A complete powered USB hub has been incorporated into the Starlight Xpress Trius SX-9 USB Hub Monochrome CCD Camera which offers three USB 2.0 ports at the rear of the camera. It is fitted with a new peltier cooler configuration to go along with an Argon-Filled CCD chamber, allowing a greater differential cooling delta to be achieved. The Starlight Xpress Trius SX-9 USB Hub Monochrome CCD Camera boasts outstanding construction in a compact, light-weight package.
