Industrial Cameras Achieve Optimal Performance With Sony Sensors

The Imaging Source introduces cameras featuring the second-generation Sony Pregius global-shutter CMOS sensors, IMX264 and IMX265. The color or monochrome cameras are available with either USB 3.0 or GigE interface standards.

 

Sony's Pregius global-shutter CMOS sensors are among the smallest and most-sensitive sensors on the market. With resolutions of 5 MP (IMX264) and 3.1 MP (IMX265) and with a pixel size of only 3.45 µm, these high-performance back-illuminated sensors are 1.1 times as sensitive as comparable Sony sensors with a pixel size of 5.86 µm and so deliver exceptional image quality even under less-than-optimal lighting conditions. The sensors not only impress with their high sensitivity but also with low noise, brilliant colors and good near-infrared sensitivity. The Imaging Source offers the IMX264 / IMX265 sensors in cameras with USB 3.0 and GigE interfaces; reaching frames rates of 38 fps / 60 fps and 24 fps / 36 fps at resolutions of 5 MP / 3.1 MP respectively. The IMX264 / IMX265 sensors present a low-cost alternative to the high-speed IMX250 / IMX252 sensors with the same image quality and are well-suited for applications not requiring the high frame rates of IMX250 / IMX252.
