XCL-SG510 global shutter CMOS camera

Sony Europe’s Image Sensing Solutions division has begun shipping its range of 5.1 megapixel, 154fps Camera Link v2.0 modules – the XCL-SG510 – based on Sony’s global shutter CMOS technology.

The camera series is suited to a wide range of sectors to capture high speed moving objects in low (0.5 lx), imperfect or changing lighting conditions including intelligent transport (ITS), factory automation, food and drink inspection, and pharmaceutical applications.

The black and white and colour modules make use of the large bandwidth available through Camera Link to provide both high frame rates and on-camera functions, including wide dynamic range, frame accumulation, shading and error correction, single and multi ROI imaging, and area gain and exposure.

These functions can be hardware and software triggered, using edge detection, pulse width detection, bulk trigger and sequential trigger modes. The XCL-SG510 module uses the Sony 2/3-type Exmor CMOS sensor with Pregius technology.
