The XCU-CG160 module can provide an easy migration path from CCD to GS CMOS, allowing the switch without system upgrades or a changed architecture. At the ehart of the module is the 1/3-type Sony Pregius IMX273 sensor, an ideal replacement for the ICX445 CCD sensor. The new sensor has large technological improvements in sensitivity, dynamic range, noise reduction and frame rate capability.
Key image-processing features included on the device include area gain and defect pixel correction. Shading correction has also been implemented.
The b/w module has a minimum illumination of just 0.5 lx, the colour module requires just 12 lx and comes with a manual, auto and one-push white balance setting. Both modules have a sensitivity of F5.6, a gain of 0 to +18 dB, a shutter speed of 60 s to 1/10,000 s.
The C-mount modules measure 29 x 29 x 42 mm, weigh 52g, and have an operating temperature of -5oC to +45oC. It meets UL60950-1, FCC Class A, CSA C22.2-No.60950-1, IC Class A Digital Device, CE : EN61326 (Class A), AS EMC: EN61326-1, VCCI Class A and KCC regulations.
