Abstract
ELMER is a multi-purpose instrument for the GTC designed for both, Imaging and Spectrosopy in the visible range. The CCD camera employs a E2V Technologies CCD44-82 detector mounted in a high performance LN2 Bath Cryostat based on an ESO design and a SDSU-II CCD controller with parallel interface. The design including the low-noise fan-out electronics has been kept flexible to allow alternatively the use of MIT/LL CCID-20 detectors. We present the design of the CCD camera and data acquisition system and first performance test results.
