The PL-B777F is a high
performance 5 mega pixel monochrome Firewire camera designed for a
broad range of industrial imaging applications. This camera is based
on the Micron CMOS rolling shutter progressive scan sensor with a
1/2.5” optical format. Factory calibrated Digital Pixel Correction
and on-board Flat Field Correction (FFC) provides image quality
similar to high-end CCD cameras.
Fully IIDC 1.31 compliant, the PL-B777F uses a standard FireWire
interface for plug-and-play operation with the host computer.
External triggering and 2 general-purpose outputs provide users the
flexibility to synchronize the camera with their processes and
The PL-B777F has a
rich set of features and capabilities all controllable through
software. A rolling shutter and external trigger allows for
synchronization in demanding machine vision applications. In video
mode, the camera can deliver 7 fps at 2592 x 1944, 16 fps at 1600 x
1200 and 63 fps at 640 x 480 all with user-definable region of
interest (ROI).Full field-of-view images can be decimated for
high-speed transmission. The CMOS sensor architecture provides
excellent anti-blooming capability.
The camera has a user-selectable 8 or 10-bit output. Access to
external triggering and the 2 general-purpose is supplied via the
9-pin micro D connector. Expensive frame grabbers are not required.
For OEM customers, PixeLINK believes the integration of imaging
products with software should be a quick and painless endeavor.
That’s why our industry leading Software Developer’s Kit (SDK)
uses a common API for all of our cameras regardless of the
customer’s chosen interface. Software code developed for one
camera model is easily transferred to other PixeLINK camera models
saving you time and money. With the SDK, PixeLINK supplies an
extensive Application Programming Interface (API) and camera control
Graphical User Interface (GUI) for fast and easy application
development. The SDK also includes wrappers for National Instruments
LabVIEW versions 7.1, 8.0 and 8.2.
The camera’s functionality includes several triggering and GPIO
modes for quick and easy integration with strobed illumination and
motion controllers. Included is an on-board user-programmable lookup
table (LUT) applied in real time and on-board non-volatile memory
for camera configuration. Some of the other user controllable camera
settings are: gain, offset, frame rate, auto exposure, gamma, color
balance and saturation. All of these features, plus many more, are
available in PixeLINK’s free demonstration GUI, PixeLINK
