Sony is expanding its popular XCG GigE camera series with the introduction of a new high-quality colour camera.

The new XCG-H280CR incorporates a 2/3-type EXview HAD CCD II™ colour sensor which provides great sensitivity with a full-HD high frame rate imagetransfer capability with 8-, 10-, or 12- bit video data output. In addition to inheriting some of the unique features of Sony’s XCD Series, such as Bulk Trigger and Sequential Trigger modes, the XCG-H280CR supports useful features for ITS (Intelligent Transportation System) applications such as Chunk Data and Auto Exposure.

The XCG-H280CR incorporates the GigE Vision® interface standard based on Gigabit Ethernet technology. In response to growing demand for large-scale systems, this interface enables the camera to transfer a large amount of data over long distances. The use of an Ethernet cable and the availability of a wide variety of peripheral devices contribute to significant cost-cutting benefits when designing a complete vision system.
By utilizing the features and benefits of the GigE Vision, the XCG-H280CR camera is ideally suited to the demanding requirements of ITS and machine-vision applications.

GigE Vision Interface
The adoption of the GigE Vision® Version1.2 interface adds to the outstanding value and performance of the XCG-H280CR camera. Being GenICam-compatible, the XCGH280CR is easy to integrate, thanks to a host of commercially available image-processing libraries.

High Frame Rate Image Transfer
The XCG-H280CR 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.

Image Buffer
The XCG-H280CR 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-H280CR 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.

Chunk Data
The XCG-H280CR camera features metadata readout over Ethernet. The metadata includes Trigger Counter, Offset X, Offset Y, Exposure Time, and GPI Status which are useful in ITS applications.

Auto Exposure
The XCG-H280CR features Auto Exposure which enables the camera to capture high-quality images under various lighting conditions.

Low Power Consumption and Compact Design
The XCG-H280CR 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.
