Sony is expanding its popular XCG GigE camera series with the
introduction of a new high-quality, high-sensitivity monochrome
camera. The new XCG-H280E incorporates a 2/3-type EXview
HAD CCD II™ sensor which provides greater sensitivity in the
visible and near-infrared wavelengths than previous models.
In addition to inheriting some of the unique features of Sony’s
XCD Series such as Bulk Trigger and Sequential Trigger modes,
the XCG-H280E features a full-HD high frame rate image-transfer
capability with 8-, 10-, or 12-bit video data output.
- Excellent picture quality thanks to progressive scan CCD technology from Sony
- CCD read out supports Partial scan, Binning
- 8/10/12 bits / pixel (Raw data or B/W)
- Shutter Manual (2 to 1/100,000s)
- Gain control Manual (0 to + 18dB) /Auto
- 16 Memory Channels
- GigE Vision interface based on Gigabit ethernet 1000 BASE-T technology
- Packet resend mechanism
- Data transfer length up to 100m
- Advanced trigger modes (sequence, pulse width, delay)
- Fixed trigger latency (from hardware input to exposure start)
- Exposure output, digital inputs/outputs
- 1,024 Bytes User Memory
The adoption of the GigE Vision® Version 1.2 adds to the outstanding value and performance of the XCG-H280E camera. Being GenICamcompatible, the XCG-H280E is easy to integrate, thanks to a host of commercially available image-processing libraries.
High Frame Rate Image Transfer
The XCG-H280E features a high readout rate of uncompressed images for smooth and clear results. This also enables the camera to capture fast-moving objects without sacrificing image quality.
Utilizing Sony’s latest EXview HAD CCD II technology enables the XCG-H280E to capture clear images in lowlight environments. When used with an infrared strobe, the camera’s high sensitivity in the near-infrared wavelength delivers outstanding picture quality.
The XCG-H280E is equipped with an image buffer, which serves as temporary storage for captured images for later transmission or retransmission. This function allows users to maximize bandwidth in multiple-camera operations or reconfirm specific images as required.
Bulk Trigger Mode & Sequential Trigger Mode
In addition to conventional Trigger mode, the XCG-H280E camera features advanced Bulk Trigger and Sequential Trigger modes. The camera supports 16 memory channels that can store up to 16 different camera setups (exposure, gain, LUT). Bulk Trigger mode allows the XCG camera to capture up to 16 images in rapid succession using a single software or hardware trigger. Sequential Trigger mode allows the camera to capture a single image using successive setups stored in the memory channels with each software or hardware trigger.
Low Power Consumption and Compact Design
The XCG-H280E camera features low power consumption and a compact 50 x 50 x 57.5 mm (2 x 2 x 2 3/8 in) design. The camera also has the ability to operate at temperatures of up to 50°C / 122°F.
