Based on the new Truesense Imaging KAI-16070 CCD sensor, the HR16070 is a high-speed, 16 megapixel camera with a 4-tap sensor allowing SVS-VISTEK Introduces a New High-Speed 16 Megapixel Camera to its SVCam-HR Linefor a frame rate up to 10Hz with superior image quality and fidelity. This sensor achieves a 100-times better smear factor with a 7.4µm² pixel size than the previous 2-tap design, allowing sharp images at very short exposure times while providing an incredibly wide dynamic range.

The compact design of the camera features an M58 x 0.75 thread lens mount and optional F-mount to interface with high-quality lenses. The HR16070 is available with a medium configuration Camera Link interface and a dual-port GigEVision interface.

Additional features include flexible I/Os with the ability to control and drive LED strobe lighting with up to 3 Amps of power directly from the camera and without the need for an external LED control unit. These same outputs can be used to drive servo motors which are driven by pulse width modulated signals. Pixel defect correction, flat-field shading correction, fully automatic, industry-leading tap-balancing, and a logical trigger input round out the main features of this advanced camera.

The SVS-VISTEK HR16070 compliments the other high-resolution models in the SVCam-HR lineup:

  • HR11002 with 11 megapixel 2-tap sensor at up to 6.1fps in GigE and 10fps in CameraLink
  • HR16000 with 16 megapixel 2-tap sensor at up to 4.0fps in GigE and 4.9fps in CameraLink
  • HR16070 with 16 megapixel 4-tap sensor at up to 10fps in GigE and 10fps in CameraLink
  • HR29050 with 29 megapixel 4-tap sensor at up to 6.2fps in GigE and 6.2fps in CameraLink
The high resolution, best-in-class image quality and high frame rate make the SVCam-HR line an ideal solution for LED/LCD, wafer and PCB inspection, metrology imaging, glass inspection, high-end traffic, surveillance and defense applications, and aerial imaging.
