Sony Europe's image sensing solutions division has extended its
XCG range of GigE machine vision cameras with the launch of the
XCG-H280E. The camera module implements the ICX-674 full HD resolution
CCD sensor, capable of running at up to 50fps. It is the first sensor to
benefit from Sony's next generation EXview HAD CCD II technology.
Its resolution, high frame rate and ability to work in low light
conditions make the camera module suited to intelligent
transportation systems (ITS) applications, where image quality,
sensitivity and speed are paramount. The 50x50x57.5mm black / white C
mount camera unit delivers a standard output of 1920x1080 at 32fps and
is fully compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP. The device is GigE
v1.2 compliant and upgradable to GigE v2.0.
The device can also connect to external devices, such as a strobe or
detector and trigger, to optimise image exposure. The manufacturer will
follow the launch with two additional colour modules. The XCG-U100CR
will use the Sony ICX-274E sensor to deliver a 2 mega-pixel resolution
(1600x1200) at 27fps and the XCG-5005CR will use the Sony ICX-625 sensor
to deliver a 5 mega-pixel resolution (2448x2048) at 15fps.
