CMOS cameras for advanced machine vision applications
14 November 2015
Sony Europe has introduced a series of GS CMOS series cameras that offer clear benefits to designers and end users in factory automation and non-manufacturing markets.
Comprising four models, the XCG-CG240/C and XCG-CG510/C are IEEE1588 compliant, feature multi-pixel averaging technology for optimum performance in a range of environments and are available as black and white or colour cameras.
These new GigE cameras benefit from Sony’s Global Shutter CMOS sensors, which include industry-leading Pregius and Exmor technologies.
In industrial applications there is often a demand to view the form of fast-moving objects accurately. Traditionally, a rolling shutter has been used as the electronic shutter mechanism in CMOS image sensors in which an unavoidable, intrinsic distortion of the focal plane occurs.
Overcoming this problem, Sony’s Pregius is a global shutter pixel technology for active pixel-type CMOS image sensors that use Sony’s low-noise CCD structure to realise undistorted, high image quality.
Exmor R is a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor with improved sensitivity and noise reduction - key factors in enhancing image quality. While radically realigning the fundamental pixel structure from front-illumination to back-illumination, Exmor R retains all the advantages of traditional CMOS image sensors such as low power consumption and high-speed operation.
The XCG-CG240/C and XCG-CG510/C feature 2.4Mp@40fps (@8 bit) and 5.1Mp@23fps (@8 bit) processing capabilities.
