NEW!  Sony’s New Line Up of GigE Vision® Cameras

GigE Vision® Cameras Sony recently introduced its new line up of GigE cameras.  The XCG Series incorporates the GigE Vision interface which is specifically standardized for machine vision applications based on Gigabit Ethernet technology.

The XCG Series consists of four models:

  • XCG-V60E - 1/3-type PS CCD, VGA resolution at 90 fps
  • XCG-SX97E- 2/3-type PS CCD, SXGA resolution at 16 fps
  • XCG-U100E – 1/1.8-type PS CCD, UXGA resolution at 15 fps
  • XCG-5005E – 2/3-type PS CCD, 5 Mega Pixel at 15 fps

The use of an Ethernet cable and availability of a wide variety of peripheral devices contribute to significant cost-cutting benefits when designing a complete vision system.  These C mounted cameras measure 44 x 33 x 67.5mm, deliver a resolution depth of up to 12 bits per pixel with a shutter speed of 1/100,000s. These cameras are ideally suited for a wide range of machine vision, factory automation, security and quality control applications.

FCB-H11High Definition, It’s in their HDNA.
Sony, a leader in HD technology, has expanded its popular block series with a new HD color camera, the FCB-H11. With its high sensitivity, multi-format video outputs (1080i/720p, and NTSC/PAL) and auto ICR for day/night function, the FCB-H11 is ideal for inspection, security, broadcast, traffic and IP monitoring applications.
