Performance Specifications
   Horizontal Resolution       Horizontal resolution is the maximum number of individual picture elements that can be distinguished in a single scanning line. This measurement is used to characterize the horizontal video resolution corrected for the image aspect ratio, or to specify the resolution in the largest circle than can fit in a rectangular image. A 640 x 480 image would, for example, be specified as 480 horizontal lines. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Maximum Frame Rate       The maximum frame rate is the number of frames that can be captured in a unit of time, such as seconds. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Shutter Speed       The shutter speed is the time of exposure or light collection. Typically, it may be set across a wide range. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Sensitivity       Sensitivity refers to minimum scene illumination required for good image quality. The standard unit for illuminance is lux, or lumens per square meter (lm/m2). 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Resolution:      This is the analog-to-digital resolution of the image.
   Your choices are...         
   8 bits       8-bit numbers represent 256 signal levels. 
   10 bits       10-bit numbers represent 1024 signal levels.

Imaging Specifications
   Technology       
   Your choices are...         
   CCD       Charge coupled devices (CCDs) are light-sensitive silicon chips that detect electrons excited by incoming light. They contain micro circuitry that transfers a detected signal along a row of discrete picture elements or pixels, scanning the image very rapidly. CCD cameras use two-dimensional CCD arrays with many thousands of pixels. 
   CMOS       Complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors operate at lower voltages than charged coupled devices (CCDs), reducing power consumption for portable applications. Analog and digital processing functions can be integrated readily onto a CMOS chip, reducing system package size and overall cost. With CMOS, each active pixel sensor cell has its own buffer amplifier and can be addressed and read individually.  Commonly used cells have four transistors and a photo sensing element. Each cell has a transfer gate that separates the photo sensor from a capacitive floating diffusion and a reset gate between the floating diffusion and the power supply. Each cell also has a source-follower transistor to buffer the floating diffusion from readout-line capacitance, and a row-select gate to connect the cell to the readout line. All of the pixels in a column connect to a common sense-amplifier. 
   CID       Charge injection devices (CIDs) are photosensitive image sensors that are often implemented with large-scale integration technologies. CIDs can be randomly addressed, read non-destructively, and sub-scanned in a small region. CIDs are also less susceptible to charge overflows from bright pixels. To capture incident light, the pixel structure is contiguous with the maximum surface. This technique is also useful for sub-pixel measurements. 
   Film       Images are exposed onto a photosensitive film that is developed. The shutter, a manual door that admits light to the film, typically controls exposure. 
   Other       Other unlisted imaging technologies.

   NTSC       The National Television System Committee (NTSC) 525-line color television standard is used in North America and Japan. Approximately 480 lines hold image information. The remaining lines contain synchronization, time delay, and other encoded information such as closed caption text. The standard frame rate is 30 frames per second. 
   PAL       Phase alternate line (PAL) is a 625-line, 25-frame per second, color television standard used in Europe. The phase of the color carrier is shifted 180° for each image line, making PAL less sensitive to color signal phase distortion. PAL provides lower vertical resolution than NTSC, but requires complex processing equipment. 
   RS232       RS232 is an interface between data terminal equipment and data communications equipment that uses serial binary data interchange. 
   RS422       RS422 is a balanced serial interface for the transmission of digital data. It was designed for greater distances and higher Baud rates than RS232. 
   RS485       RS485 is a balanced serial interface for the transmission of digital data. The advantage of a balanced signal is a greater immunity to noise. The difference between RS422 and RS485 is that RS485 can be transformed into a multi-point application. 
   RS644 / LVDS       RS644 defines a differential signal, not a specific voltage level. RS644 can use 1 V, 4 V, or 350 mV low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS). 
   Parallel       Parallel channels can transfer more than one bit simultaneously. They connect to a computer through a parallel port. Common protocols include standard parallel port (SPP) and enhanced parallel port (EPP). Centronics connectors are standard parallel interface devices for connecting printers and other peripherals such as portable disc drives, tape backup drives, and CD-ROM players to computers. 
   Ethernet       Ethernet is a local area network (LAN) protocol that uses a bus or star typology and supports data transfer rates of 10 Mbps. The Ethernet specification is the basis for the IEEE 802.3 standard, which specifies the physical and lower software layers. To handle simultaneous demands, Ethernet uses carrier sense multiple access/collision detection (CSMA/CD) to monitor network traffic. This includes Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet. 
   IEEE 1394 (FireWire®)       IEEE 1394 or FireWire® is an interface standard adopted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for very fast digital data transfers such as streaming video. IEEE 1394 connectors are used to transmit and receive data among FireWire devices, and are designed to replace external high-speed peripheral connections to personal computers, including hard disks, CD-ROMs, DVDs, graphics cards, high-speed scanners, direct video, monitors, etc. FireWire is a registered trademark of Apple Computer, Inc.  
   USB       Universal serial bus (USB) is a 4-wire, 12-Mbps serial bus for low-to-medium speed peripheral device connections to personal computers (PC), including keyboards, mice, modems, printers, joysticks, audio functions, monitor controls, etc. The USB design is standardized by the USB Implementers Forum (USBIF), an organization that includes leading companies from the computer and electronics industries. The current USB specification is USB 2.0, which supports data transfer rates of up to 480 Mbps. 
   Wireless       Outputs are radio or wireless transmissions. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary configurations. 
   Camera Link®       Camera Link®, a registered trademark of the Automated Imaging Association, is a communication interface for vision applications. It extends the base technology of CHANNEL LINK, a chipset that supports high-speed, point-to-point data transmission.
