Specifically Designed to Work with Pixim DPS ChipsetsCARLSBAD, Calif., June 4, 2007 -- Sunex has introduced a product that it said provides true day and night capability to C- and CS-mount cameras based on Pixim chipsets.
The new Sunex CSS-EXM-IRC21 is compatible with C- or CS-mount cameras and joins the existing M12-EXM-IRC21 with integrated lens mount (M12) in Sunex’s day/night switcher line, the company said. In low-light conditions the exchanger maximizes the light transmission to the sensor; in full-light conditions the exchanger optimizes the color rendition of the image.
The exchangers are designed to work specifically with Pixim DPS chipsets. Operation requires only a mating, 2-pin connector and a ±3-V 100-ms signal. One signal inserts the infrared (IR) cut filter between the lens and the sensor for daytime operation, optimizing the color rendition. The opposite signal exchanges the IR cut filter with a clear antireflective-coated window to maximize the light transmission in low-light conditions. The latching solenoid requires power only to switch, minimizing power consumption and heat generation, Sunex said.
The compact size is ideal for miniature cameras and allows the flexibly to choose different lenses based on application. With a small footprint and mounting holes designed specifically to mate with the Pixim reference PCB, both exchangers are drop-in solutions to make an existing camera design a true day/night camera, according to the company.
