Pixel shift machine vision camera provides 260m pixel resolutionThe Vieworks VNP-29MC CameraLink industrial vision cameras utilise pixel shift technology to offer an extended resolution of 260 million pixels for ultra high-resolution applications. These versatile cameras from Stemmer Imaging also deliver 29 megapixel resolution at a high frame rate of 5 fps under standard operation.

VNP-29MC sensors are thermo-electric Peltier (TEC) cooled for improved sensitivity. The TEC maintains the operating temperature of the 6576 × 4384 pixel CCD up to 15 degrees below ambient. This provides very stable operating conditions, reducing noise and enabling exposure for a long period of time or at higher gain levels to increase camera sensitivity. This makes the cameras suited to low light or low contrast level, or non-uniform brightness industrial applications such as flat panel display inspection and microscopy.

Available in colour and monochrome versions, the cameras feature a nano stage pixel shift mechanism based on a precise piezoelectric stage. This enables the standard resolution to be extended by 4 times to 115 million pixels at 1.3 fps, or by 9 times to 260 million pixels at 0.6 fps. Colour versions provide true colour at full image resolution.

The VNP-29MC features a progressive scan interline transfer CCD imager with an integrated electronic shutter to provide excellent real time imaging performance. Camera features include flat field correction, field-upgradable firmware and pixel defect correction.
