Camera modules delivering 12MP images at 20fps

It has been announced by Sony Europe’s Image Sensing Solutions that its XCL-SG1240 series of Camera Link V2.0 modules, which utilise a 1.1-type global shutter CMOS sensor to deliver 12MP images at 20fps, will be available in mass production quantities from July 2018.

The series, which includes colour and black/white modules, further adds to Sony’s line up of GS CMOS machine vision modules. Sony has integrated several features including area gain, shading correction, burst trigger and PoCL functions. 

The cameras are suited to sectors that require exceptional detail even in low (0.5lx), imperfect or changing lighting conditions. Sony has highlighted intelligent transport (ITS), factory automation, electronics manufacturing as well as AOI / panel inspection as potential applications. 

The company has also developed the modules to enable simple migration from CCD systems, allowing for over one inch C-mount lens mounts, incorporating the same command control as the XCL-S900 and a Camera Link base configuration. The modules come with both hardware and software triggered synchronisation, with trigger modes of burst, edge detection and pulse width detection. 

The XCL-SG1240 series uses the Sony 1.1 type Pregius GS CMOS sensor. The module been created by Sony’s engineering team to extract the industry’s best image from this market leading sensor.

Arnaud Destruels, European Marketing Manager, Sony Image Sensing Solutions stated: “The new module follows months of Sony ISS engineers working with the Sony Pregius 1.1 type sensor and developing a custom module design that extracts the best possible image quality for the machine vision sector.”
