25 up to 170 cubes/s 409 x 217 (5x5)  4)

Note 1: in 4 nm steps,  Note 2: in 3 nm steps,  Note 3: There is no spatial resolution in case of Linescan sensors. Width is 2048 and 8 or 5 are number of lines.

Note 4: There is no typical value, these are Approximate numbers of pixels. The original sensor resolution can be interpolated.
