Digital machine vision camera - FireWire - Sony ICX267 

The Stingray F-146B/C is equipped with a SONY HAD CCD sensor (ICX267). At full resolution, this digital machine vision camera runs at 15 fps. Higher frame rates can be reached by a smaller AOI, binning (b/w) or sub-sampling.

Stingray cameras include numerous real-time image pre-processing functions. All below mentioned functions are performed by the FPGA inside the camera – with no additional CPU load and thus an inexpensive host computer.

  • AOI (true partial scan), separate AOI for auto features
  • Programmable LUT, white balance, hue, saturation
  • Debayering
  • Gain
    • Auto/manual
    • Manual gain control: 0 - 24.4 dB
  • Exposure
    • Auto/manual
    • Exposure time: 39 µs - 67 s
  • Color correction
  • Shading correction
  • High SNR mode (up to 24 dB better signal-to-noise ratio)
  • Local color anti-aliasing
  • Sub-sampling, 2x – 8x binning (b/w)
  • Low noise binning mode
  • Defect pixel correction
  • Sequence mode (changes the camera settings on the fly)
  • Image mirror
  • Deferred image transport
  • SIS (secure image signature, time stamp for trigger, frame count etc.)
  • Storable user settings

 

The Technical Manual of the Stingray contains detailed descriptions of all functions.

The Stingray F-146 digital machine vision cameras fit many applications, their flexibility is a benefit of all Stingray FireWire cameras. AVT recommends using this camera for:

  • Industrial inspection and automation
  • Logistics
  • Science and research
  • Healthcare and medical (white housing available)
  • Multimedia, entertainment and sports
  • ITS (Intelligent traffic solutions)
  • ... and many more

Additionally, it is ideally suited for:

  • Demanding OEM camera applications (board level versions with separate sensor board available on request)
  • Daisy chain applications (two copper connectors)
  • Long cables - 400 meters and more without additional repeaters (Stingray F-146B/C fiber version)
