g class="" hspace="7" alt="Sony XCG-H280E Cameras" align="right" width="250" height="227" src="/userAssets/aiaUploads/Image/Sony_XCG-H280E.jpg" />With the launch of the new XCG-H280E, Sony Europe’s Image Sensing Solutions division has extended its XCG range of GigE machine vision cameras.
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.
The camera module’s resolution, high frame rate and ability to work in low light conditions make it ideally suited to intelligent transport systems (ITS), where image quality, sensititvity and speed are paramount.
The 50mm x 50mm x 57.5mm black / white C mount camera unit delivers a standard output of 1920 x 1080 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. It can also connect to external devices, such as a strobe or detector and trigger, to optimise image exposure.
“The unit has been designed to deliver exceptional performance at a competitive price and has been created with the ITS, high-end security and factory automation markets in mind,” said Stephane Clauss, business development manager at Sony’s ISS division.
Sony plans to follow the launch with two additional colour modules. The XCG-U100CR will use the Sony ICX-274E snsor to deliver a 2 mega-pixel resolution (1600×1200) at 27fps and the XCG-5005CR will use the Sony ICX-625 sensor to deliver a 5 mega-pixel resolution (2448×2048) at 15fps.
All three camera modules will be on display at the IFSEC security show, 16-18 May, Birmingham (Hall 4, Stand J10) and Intertraffic Instanbul ITS show, 25-17 May (Hall 10, Stand D1) and will be available for mass production during July 2011, says the company.
