Industrial camera, Sony EXview HAD CCD sensor ICX445

The Stingray F-125B/C is equipped with the SONY EXview HAD CCD sensor ICX445 and has an extra high sensitivity. At full resolution, it runs at 30 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: 25 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. 

Stingray F-125B/C cameras incorporate the Sony ExView HAD sensor ICX445 (very high sensivity). Furthermore, its smart functions like the High SNR mode enhance the image quality especially in low light situations. This industrial camera is ideally suited for:

  • Industrial inspection and automation
  • Logistics
  • Science and research
  • Healthcare and medical (light gray 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 chaining (two copper connectors)
  • Long cables - 400 meters and more without additional repeaters (glass optical fiber version: Stingray F-125B/C fiber)
