This high resolution, five megapixel camera, equipped with a Camera Link (CL) interface, is available in two versions: BM-500CL (monochrome) and BB-500CL (raw Bayer color). Both models are built around the Sony ICX625 2/3 inches CCD sensor (2448 x 2050 pixels - QSXGA). This versatile and flexible mid-range camera offers excellent thermal management and pre-processing to guarantee optimal sensor operation, giving high quality images every time. The camera’s well-crafted analog front end design enables it to operate at 15 fps with full five megapixel resolution, an improvement over the 12 fps rate found in some five megapixel cameras. Partial scanning and binning modes are also provided for increased flexibility and performance.
