1.1-type GSCMOS, 12.4MP, 20fps, black & white

The XCL-SG1240 (black & white) and XCL-SG1240C (colour) are the latest industrial cameras from Sony to incorporate Sony Pregius GSCMOS sensor technology.  

The XCL-SG1240 combines the latest Sony technology in a convenient form factor which is optimised for use within both the Industrial Vision and non-manufacturing vision markets.

Drawing upon Sony's market leading Global Shutter CMOS sensor technology the XCL-SG1240 combines the highly innovative, high resolution Sony Pregius 12.4MP GSCMOS sensor with Sony's rich heritage of complete camera technology and a Camera Link interface, bringing the best combination of performance and quality from a brand you can trust.  

Incorporates the very latest Pregius high sensitivity technology, the XCL-SG1240 provides an excellent balance between high resolution image and fast frame rate with best visibility in challenging lighting environments.

Key Features


Unique Image Processing 

Utilising both Sony’s GSCMOS Pregius technology and image processing know-how, the XCL-SG1240 camera comes equipped with advanced image processing capabilities, such as:
  • Frame Accumulation
  • Area Gain
  • Partial Scan
  • Trigger Range Limitation
  • 3 x 3 Filter
  • Image Flip
When combined with the use of a high speed Camera Link interface, the XCG-SG1240 is perfectly suited for use within ITS, factory automation, food and beverage inspection and pharmaceutical applications.
High Frame Rate Image Transfer
XCL-SG1240 camera feature a high readout rate of uncompressed images for smooth and clear results. The XCL-SG1240 achieve up to 20 (8-bit x 3 tap) frames per second (fps).  Other frame rates are selectable. This enables the camera to capture very high quality images of fast-moving objects where resolution is a priority.
Shading Correction
With embedded shading correction and Pregius sensor technology the XCL-SG1240 camera minimises the uneven image intensity often caused by lighting and/or the lens. The internal hardware processing reduces the need for external image correction that is normally performed via a frame grabber board and PC. This handy function reduces the processing load of the PC, and simplifies the processing task. 
Defect Correction
XCL-SG1240 camera can automatically minimise defective pixels (e.g.., white and black dots) within the entire imaging area directly inside the camera. This feature helps simplify image processing.  Corrections are applied from the surrounding areas adjascent to the pixel where the defect has been detected. 
Memory Channel (User Set)
In addition to factory default settings, up to 16 camera parameters – including brightness, gamma, shutter, gain, and trigger mode – can be preset to suit each
particular scene.
Industrial Design
The XCG-SG1240 adopts the rich heritage in camera design from Sony.  It is designed to resist high shock and vibration whilst maintaining Sony's reputation for high durability and performance.
