The LQ-050CL is a 4CCD line scan camera using four 512 pixel line sensors mounted on a prism, for the R, G,B and NIR channels.

It operates with a 40 MHz pixel clock, resulting in a maximum line rate of 70,922 lines per second.

The camera outputs digital data in 4 x 8 bits or 4 x 10 bits format via Camera Link. The camera is configured by software through the serial communication port of the Camera Link interface, or via RS-232C through a 12-pin Hirose connector.

The camera accepts M52 mount or F-mount lens.

The LQ-050CL is a suitable camera for various applications such as inspection of fruits, vegetables ,circuits boards or electronic/mechanical parts, as the NIR image can catch scratches or blemishes on object surfaces which the RGB color image cannot find.
