The PL-B741F is a high performance, 1.3 megapixel monochrome camera designed specifically for machine vision applications. Fully IIDC 1.31 compliant, the PL-B741F uses a standard FireWire interface for plug-and-play operation with the host computer. Extended features, such as trigger and general purpose outputs add a level of functionality to the PL-B741F, providing excellent performance for the price. Factory calibrated Digital Pixel Correction and on-board Flat Field Correction (FFC) provides image quality similar to high-end CCD cameras.

The PL-B741F has a rich set of features and capabilities all controllable through software. A global shutter and external trigger allows for synchronization in demanding machine vision applications. In video mode, the camera can deliver up to 33 fps at 1k x 1k resolution, up to 107 fps at VGA resolution (640 x 480) and up to 8000 fps at 724 x 8, all with user-definable region of interest (ROI). Full field-of-view images can be decimated for high speed transmission. The camera has a user-selectable 8 or 10-bit output. The CMOS sensor architecture provides excellent anti-blooming capability. With the Software Developer’s Kit (SDK), PixeLINK supplies an extensive Application Programming Interface (API) and camera control Graphical User Interface (GUI) for fast and easy application development. This functionality includes additional trigger modes, general purpose outputs that can be used as communication lines for strobe signals for lighting and motion controllers. Included is an on-board user-programmable lookup table (LUT) applied in real time, on-board non-volatile memory for camera configuration and camera configuration descriptors for quick changes to camera settings between frames. Multi-slope dynamic range controls, enables balanced exposure in images with large inner-scene dynamic range. This extended Shutter logarithmically increases the linear dynamic range of 54db to greater than 100db.

The PL-B741F Machine Vision camera was designed for OEM applications such as:
· Traffic Inspection
· Welding
· Wafer Alignment
· Biometrics
· Container Inspection
· PCB Inspection
. With flexible ROI it can also be used as a quasi-linescan for high-speed applications.
