IRVINE, Calif., JULY 7, 2006 -- Toshiba Teli America has introduced two new industrial imaging solutions, the CMOS-based CSB1100CL-10 and the CS6910F, which comes equipped with a Super CCD.

The CSB1100CL-10 was designed to provide machine vision engineers with an economical, high-performance alternative to more expensive CCD-based monochrome cameras, Toshiba Teli said.

Based on a 1.3 megapixel CMOS progressive scan sensor, the CSB1100CL-10 has a razor sharp 1240 x 1024 resolution and 22 fps capture rate on fast-moving subjects. According to the company, it is an ideal solution in a variety of challenging machine vision applications, including factory automation, OCR/DCR reading, inspection and quality control. In addition to delivering excellent resolution, the CMOS sensor heightens the camera's spectral response and raises its signal-to-noise ratio to 47 dB.

To save the operator time and money, the CSB1100CL-10 also incorporates the CameraLink interface for digital 10-bit output. The interface assures interchangeability of the CSB1100CL-10 with other CameraLink products utilizing a common connector, cable and pin assignment.

The CSB1100CL-10 also features Toshiba Teli's patented windows of interest capability, which allows up to 16 areas within a screen to be set by the user, resulting in dramatically increased frame rates suitable for extreme high-speed processing. Areas are read out by designating horizontal and vertical addresses.

Other features of the CSB1100CL-10, which is available now, are global shutter mode that exposes all pixels simultaneously with little or no blurring, random trigger shutter mode and a wide dynamic range to capture both high- and low-intensity subjects at the same time despite a large difference in contrasts.

Toshiba Teli also announced it is shipping the new CS6910F, a next generation FireWire digital camera that uses a honeycomb-style Super CCD to achieve SXGA (1280 x 960) resolution images at up to 30 fps.

When going head-to-head with traditional CCDs, the CS6910F's 1/4 in. progressive-scan Super CCD provides superior color fidelity, greater sensitivity and improved dynamic range while delivering high-quality digital video streams to a host PC, the company said. This translates into lower error rates and speeds across a wide range of color-based factory automation and image measurement applications. 

Other features include random trigger shutter, electronic shutter (1/15,000 to 8 sec.), and multiple video formats. Ruggedly built for industrial environments, it sports compact dimensions (44 mm x 29 mm x 65 mm), minimal weight (160 g), and the use of universal C-mount lenses.

GLOSSARY
camera
A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
