The PL-B956 is a high performance 1.45 mega pixel (1392 x 1040) color CCD camera at 15 fps is  designed for a broad range of industrial imaging applications

Thishigh performance 1.4 MP (1392 x 1040) resolution camera is designed for a broad range of industrial imaging applications. The PL-B956 color camera provides 15 frames per second in either 8-bit or 12-bit output modes.

The cameras are based on the Sony ICX285 progressive scan CCD sensor with a 2/3" optical format and a 6.45 um pixel pitch. This ILT CCD features highspeed electronic shuttering, low image lag and low smear making the cameras ideally suited to capturing crisp images of objects in motion, common to many machine vision applications. High sensitivity, low dark current and anti-blooming further enhance image quality. In-camera Flat Field Correction (FFC) corrects for non-uniform illumination and optics in addition to the sensor's dark noise variations, which ensures good image quality over a wide range of operating conditions.


The PL-B956 & 957 cameras are suitable for a broad range of applications such as automated inspection, PCB and semiconductor inspection, container inspection, food and beverage inspection, and manufacturing quality control.
