The Modular Camera System line of color line-scan cameras launched by Chromasens GmbH includes six models. The MCS-7300 achieves a maximum line frequency of 7.7 kHz and a data transfer rate of 180 MB/s at 7300-pixel resolution. The remaining five support 1-K to 6-K-pixel resolutions at a line rate of up to 38.8 kHz. Continuous white balancing during image capture results in consistent high-quality color, and a pixel-based correction feature compensates for variations in pixel sensitivity and for the illumination gradient. Included are software that configures the cameras via an integrated serial interface and additional field-programmable-gate-array-based resources.
