MV1-D1280 Camera Series

POSTED 07/16/2013

MV1-D1280 from PhotonfocusCelebrating their 12th Anniversary, Photonfocus introduces the MV1-D1280 camera series based on the e2v 1.3MP CMOS image sensor. Showcased at the 2013 Photonics West and Automate exhibitions, features include 1280x1024 resolution at 60fps, 5.3 µm pixel pitch and B/W, colour and NIR CMOS image sensors. The NIR sensor features deep depletion photodiodes which result in exceptional high quantum efficiency in the NIR spectrum. The MV1-D1280(C/I)-120-CL-10 models have a dual-tap Base Camera Link interface. The MV1-D1280(C/I)-120-G2-10 models feature a GigE interface and are 100% GigE Vision and GenICam compatible. The new cameras are fully supported by Halcon11 and LabView drivers and examples which can be downloaded for free from the Photonfocus web site.

This new camera series is also compatible with the e2v 2MP CMOS image sensor which features 1600x1200 pixels, 4.5µm pixel pitch, B/W and color options and is already in production and scheduled for release in September 2013. Models will include the MV1-D1600(C)-120-CL-10 with a Base Camera Link interface and the MV1-D1600(C)-120-G2-10 with a GigE Vision interface. The optical diagonal and the camera case are identical with the MV1-D1280 camera models which enables easy upgrades to higher resolutions.
