Color Camera

A color camera makes use of a Bayer pattern to produce a colored image. The RGB value of every pixel is being calculated by taking the value of a pixel, in combination with all the values of neighboring pixels. This results into less sharp images than those of a monochrome camera.
Due to the RGB filter on the pixels, every single pixel, considering white light, on average has 66% less photons than a monochrome camera. Which makes a color camera less light sensitive than a monochrome one. To compensate this, the following options are available:
-    Increase the amount of light
-    Increase the gain
-    Increase shutter speed / exposure time
-    Select a more light sensitive sensor
-    Select a more light sensitive lens

With I/O:

The I/O connector from a USB camera is an 8 pin HR25 Hirose connector, which is a standard in the industrial machine vision market. This camera has an input that can be used as a hardware trigger for the device. The output of the camera can be used to trigger a light source, for example: LED. Furthermore, the camera has two GPIO’s (General Purpose Input/ Output) which can be programmed by using our SDK. The electrical diagrams to use the I/O connector are provided in the manual.

Information sensor manufacturer

(Please note that not all sensor features may be implemented)
The Sharp 130 1/3” Progressive Scan CCD  with 1.3MP resolution is the ideal replacement for all cameras with a Sony ICX445 sensor that are EOL. Both sensors have the same pixel size so the optical system can stay unchanged. Thanks to  iSHCCD II, the Sharp 130 is even more sensitive then the Sony ICX445 sensor that has HAD CCDII technology. It improves NIR and overall sensitivity thanks to microlenses and pixels with a thicker photoelectric region. Typical applications are: Replacement for EOL Sony ICX445 CCD camera, Machine Vision applications, ITS (intelligent traffic solutions).
