Andor iKon-XL and iKon Large CCD Series

Pushing detection boundaries from particles to galaxies


Andor’s NEW iKon-XL is a TE-cooled, very large area CCD camera platform, accommodating big field of view sensors that are ideally suited to long exposure astronomy applications. Patent-pending ColdSpace™ technology thermoelectrically cools a back-illuminated 16.8 Megapixel sensor (e2v) down to -100°C, avoiding the requirement for liquid nitrogen or unreliable cryo coolers. Extended Dynamic Range technology is complemented by up to 18-bit digitization capability.



  • UltraVac cooling to -100°C
  • Up to 2048 x 2048 pixel sensor format
  • 95% peak QE and extremely low noise floor multiple digitisation rates up to 5MHz
  • Deep depletion near-IR version available
  • USB2.0 plug and play connectivity
  • Windows and Linux compatibility
  • OEM-friendly design and support

The iKon-XL 231 model uses the e2v CCD231-84 ‘astro’ back-illuminated sensor, combining exceptionally low read noise of 2.1e- with a very large well depth of 350,000 e- and available with a range of sensor QE coatings, in both standard and deep depletion formats.


The iKon-XL 230 model uses the e2v CCD230-84 back-illuminated sensor, offering a very large 61.4 x 61.4mm imaging area from a 4096 x 4112 array format and 15 µm pixel size.
