A monochrome 29MP CCD camera with a base configuration Camera Link interface achieving 4.45fps has been introduced by ISVI. Designed on a smaller platform than the IC-M29 model, the IC-M29S-CL follows in its predecessor’s footsteps by providing outstanding image quality.
There are several major differences to the previous model. Firstly the size and weight of the camera has been reduced to a slim 75x75x43.4mm at 460g without lens mount. The housing utilises a sensor positioning design to provide consistently precise sensor alignment. The addition of an active cooling fan to help eliminate temperature oscillation found on passively cooled cameras is an advantage to applications demanding reproducible measuring results. The addition of the LM-Mount to an already large lens mount offering allows integrators to use high-quality Leica-M and Zeiss ZM lenses with this camera. Finally, both tap-balancing and flat-field correction algorithms have been adjusted to provide even more fidelity to the images.
