XC-HR70 and XC-HR90  
Sony ISS Products


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

Joining the Sony popular XC-HR Camera Series is the new high-speed/ high-resolution XC-HR90.

This new camera incorporates a 1/3“Progressive Scan IT CCD with SXGA resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels at a selectable frame rate of 30 or 15 full frames per second (fps).

The XC-HR90 achieves high-rate scanning up to 204.8 fps with 60 effective lines, selectable from 16 vertical divisions. Camera settings can be made via the camera’s RS-232C interface (12-pin connector).


Completing the line-up of high speed cameras are the XC-HR50, XC-HR57, XCHR58, and XC-HR70. 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.


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
