PL-C741 1.3 MP Cameras

POSTED 08/08/2011

g width="113" vspace="10" hspace="10" height="83" align="right" src="/userAssets/aiaUploads/Image/PixeLINK_PL-C741.jpg" alt="PL-C741 1.3 MP Cameras" />The PL-C741 compact cameras provide high resolution, low noise images for outstanding value in a broad range of industrial applications. The camera is a high performance 1.3 mega pixel camera based on the Cypress IBIS5 CMOS global shutter progressive scan sensor featuring a FireWire B interface and 27 fps output.
Multi-slope dynamic range controls enables balanced exposure in images with large scene dynamic range (100+ dB) making the camera well suited for traffic monitoring and welding inspection applications. Factory calibrated Digital Pixel Correction provide image quality similar to high-end CCD cameras.
Using two - rather than three - camera electronics boards, PL-C series cameras use 33% less camera hardware than existing PixeLINK offerings and are 38% to 45% smaller than cameras from PixeLINK's other professional camera line, the PL-B series. Their small size allows for easy integration into custom industrial applications in which a robust, high quality camera is required.
As with every PixeLINK® camera, the PL-C series SDK uses a common API that works for all cameras regardless of the chosen interface. Software code developed for one camera is easily transferred to other PixeLINK® models without the need to recompile - reducing overall system costs and simplifying camera integration.
