says its polarised category of machine vision camera 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.
