Machine vision camera and SDK now in mass-production
The module features an SDK that includes a range of reference applications to cut development time and cost. The XCG-CP510 is based on Sony’s newly developed IMX250MZR global shutter CMOS sensor, which uses monochrome quad polarised filters to capture polarised light in four planes.
The design of the XCG-CP510 module has been optimised to get the best performance from the new IMX250MZR sensor, and it outputs 5.1 MP polarised B/W images at 23 fps, transmitted over a GigE interface.
The camera also includes multiple trigger modes: edge detection, pulse width detection, bulk trigger, sequential trigger, free set sequence and a burst-trigger function. Additionally, the module can be fired via hardware or software triggers or via the IEEE1588 precision timing protocol, with the unit capable of acting as either a slave or dynamically assigned master device.
The IMX250MZR, Sony’s newest image sensor, is a 2/3-type Pregius GS CMOS sensor and uses four different angled polarisers, with each pixel polarised for either 90o, 45o, 135o or 0o. A four-pixel (2 x 2) calculation unit is then created to capture light in four planes.
