In industrial applications there is increasing demand to be able to accurately assess the form of fast-moving objects.Until now, rolling shutter solutions have been used across the industry, often causing distortion of the focal plane.The GS CMOS range features Sony’s Pregius, a global shutter pixel technology, which is claimed to ensure undistorted, high picture quality even at very high speeds.
These cameras also feature Sony’s Exmor RTM, a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor with improved sensitivity and noise reduction while radically realigning its fundamental pixel structure from front-illumination to back-illumination.
The GS CMOS cameras are suited to applications in the machine vision market, including automotive, electronics and semiconductor manufacturing as well as non-manufacturing sectors such as intelligent transport systems, logistics, high-end security and entertainment.
In food manufacturing, for example, the GS CMOS cameras are able to produce high-resolution images of produced cans at the rate of 120,000 cans per hour. These figures are achieved through the XCG-CG240/C and XCG-CG510/C’s 2.4Mp@40fps and 5.1Mp@23fps and camera Link camera XCL-SG510/C 5.1Mp@150fps.
