2274-FCounting Quality, Durability, and Flexibility

Starting with the latest generation of CCD sensors and signal processing technologies, Sony has created an important tool for the agricultural industry. The XC-ST50 specifically relies on the ½-type Interline Transfer (IT) sensor and HAD technology to combine quality, efficiency, and flexibility in functions, settings, and synchronization. An in-built electronic trigger shutter further opens the field of possibilities – from capturing images of objects at high speeds to externally shifting shutter speed. Yet, this innovative camera remains easy to operate with flexible controls and easy access to settings through the rear panel. Add in a compact power adapter, easy installation in tight spaces, and high shock and vibration tolerance, and you have a camera module well-suited to the needs of a variety of agricultural automation applications.

Combining functionality and flexibility makes this model ideal for applications in inspection, sorting, and processing of fast-moving objects like grains and seeds.

Now, we turn to the next innovation hatched to be counted – the Dalsa Genie TS-M1920 GigE Camera.
