Scorpion Vision is launching a new range of PixeLINK CCD industrial cameras. Developed around the Sony progressive scan Interline Transfer (ILT) CCDs, these cameras offer enhanced response levels that are said not to be possible with CMOS sensors. This results in excellent performance in light-limited applications. The high-speed electronic shuttering, low smear and image lag make these cameras well suited to capturing crisp images of fast-moving objects.
The CCD sensors have created two entirely new product families: the PL-B900 series of machine vision and industrial cameras and the PL-B800 series of microscopy camera kits that come bundled with PixeLINK Capture SE software.
Scorpion Vision offers the PL-B900 series of industrial camera in XGA (1/2inch), 1.3MP (1/2inch), 1.3MP (2/3inch) and 2MP (1/2inch) resolutions. The PL-B800 series of microscopy camera kits are offered in 1.3MP (1/2inch), 1.3MP (2/3inch) and 2MP (1/2inch) resolutions. As with all PixeLINK products, users have the choice of either a FireWire or USB 2.0 interface. All resolutions are offered in either colour or monochrome and feature 8, 10 and 12-bit output.
