Visiosens has introduced two VFU cameras with CCD and CMOS global shutter sensors. Available from Framos, the USB camera platform has been enhanced with two 1.2 Megapixel sensors: an Aptina CMOS sensor with global shutter and a Sony sensor with EXview HAD CCD technology.
Aptina’s MT9M031 is a 1/3-inch CMOS image sensor with a 1.2 Megapixel (1,280 x 960) resolution and a frame rate of 45fps at full resolution. It features a particularly high sensitivity and offers complex camera functions, such as automatic exposure control, windowing, image sizing and row skip mode.
The VFU-M031 camera produces exceptionally clear and sharp images, and its ability to capture video and single images makes it the perfect choice for machine vision applications like scanning and inspection of moving parts.
With the ICX445 from Sony, Visiosens has incorporated the first CCD sensor in its VFU camera series. The ICX445 is a 1/3-inch CCD image sensor with 1.2 Megapixel (1,348 x 976) resolution and a frame rate of 15fps at full resolution. The VFU-X445 camera offers extremely high sensitivity, making it ideal for security applications. Furthermore, it supports signal output in a variety of formats, including progressive scan, centre-out readout and four-pixel addition mode readout.
The VFU camera series is a customisable image capture platform with more than 140 camera variants per image sensor. The platform now consists of six image sensors, a variety of output interfaces, complementary assembly concepts, mounts, filters and an LED lighting ring option. It offers a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 interface.
