For Demanding Applications That Require High Frame Rates and High Resolution, Choose the Sony XC-HR Series of Progressive Scan Cameras.

All of these cameras feature the same compact body enabling them to be easily interchanged to meet your various application requirements and are ideal for space restricted areas.

Key Features


Both the XC-HR50 and XC-HR70 cameras incorporate a 1/3“ Progressive Scan IT CCD. The XC-HR50 features VGA resolution of 648 x 494 pixels at 60 full fps, and the XC-HR70 provides XGA resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels at 30 full fps.


In addition, the XC-HR camera series has a high-rate scanning function that increases their vertical scanning frequency so that images can be captured at up to 120 - 240 fps depending on the camera model. Combining high-resolution and highspeed image capture capabilities in a compact, robust body, the Sony XC-HR Camera Series are ideal for demanding applications such as semiconductor production and high-speed assembly lines. 

  • 1/3-type progressive scan CCD 
  • VGA resolution (648 x 494 pixels) image capturing at a speed of 60 full fps. 
  • High-rate scanning of up to 240 partial fps. (100 effective lines at restart/reset ON, binning OFF) 
  • Horizontal resolution: 500 TV lines 
  • Partial scan controlled by VD pulse length 
  • Minimum illumination: 1.0 lx at F1.4 
  • High S/N ratio: 58 dB 
  • Electronic shutter: 1/100 to 1/30,000 sec. 
  • Vertical Binning Function
    By combining the image data of every two lines vertically, these cameras can increase the frame rate, which minimizes image processing time.External Trigger Shutter
    Allows accurate image capture of fast-moving objects through shutter speeds of 1/4 to 1/100,000 sec. 
  • High Shock and Vibration Tolerance 
  • RoHS ComplianceCompact, Lightweight Body
  • C-mount
