The global provider of industrial cameras for the machine vision and microscopy markets Pixelink (Ottawa, Canada) is expanding its line of Sony IMX based USB 3.0 machine vison cameras.

This, said the company, will position it as having the most complete line of Sony IMX based USB 3.0 machine vison cameras in the markertplace.

Pixelink President Paul Saunders said: “Pixelink has long prided ourselves in providing high quality cameras to a broad range of industries and for varying applications. These new product solutions will address the demand in the marketplace from customers who are looking for the quality of our cameras, but who do not need the higher frame rates that Sony IMX image sensors are traditionally known for.”

The new cameras, all based on Sony Pregius global shutter CMOS technology, will be available in color or monochrome versions.  The Pixelink PL-D795 camera, which is based on the Sony IMX264 sensor, has 5 megapixel resolution, a 2/3” lens format and dynamic range of 70 dB.

The Pixelink PL-D799, based on the Sony IMX267 sensor has 9 megapixel resolution, has a 1” lens format and dynamic range of 70 dB. The Pixelink PL-D7912 camera, based on the Sony IMX304 sensor, has 12 megapixel resolution, a 1.1” lens format and dynamic range of 70 dB.

Saunders added: “These new camera offerings demonstrate our commitment to the USB 3.0 marketplace for industrial cameras. We are excited about these new camera solutions from Pixelink and we are confident that the market will embrace these additions to the Pixelink family of products.”

All cameras have global shutters and are available in board level, or enclosed configurations. They are available with an external trigger.  They are USB 3.0 compliant and offer the most, said the company, discerning customer low-noise and high-resolution images, for a broad range of markets, including machine vison, microscopy, or life science vision applications.
