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