Sony Europe’s Image Sensing Solutions (ISS) is showcasing its polarised category of machine vision camera at Traffic Vision in Stuttgart, Germany, 6-8 November. The company says the camera’s IMX250MZR sensor captures polarised light in four different angles.
The XCG-CP510 GS CMOS camera simplifies stress inspection, contrast improvement, scratch detection, object detection, removal and enhancement from a single image capture, the company adds.
The camera’s module is expected to deliver 5.1 MP polarised B/W images at 23 fps, transmitted over a GigE interface
Sony’s camera includes multiple trigger modes such as edge detection, pulse width detection, bulk trigger, sequential trigger, free set sequence and a burst-trigger function. Also, the module can be fired via hardware or software triggers or via the IEEE1588 precision timing protocol, with the unit capable of acting as either a slave or dynamically assigned master device.
XCG-CP510 will be available in mass-production quantities from November and a polarised-camera software development kit will be available to speed and simplify the development of polarised-light applications for the hardware.
