XCG-H280E: high-quality, high-sensitivity monochrome camera

Sony is expanding its popular XCG GigE camera series with the introduction of a new high-quality, high-sensitivity monochrome camera. The new XCG-H280E incorporates a 2/3-type EXview HAD II™ CCD sensor which provides greater sensitivity in the visible and near-infrared wavelengths than previous models. In addition to inheriting some of the unique features of Sony’s XCD Series such as Bulk Trigger and Sequential Trigger modes, the XCG-H280E features a full-HD high frame rate image-transfer capability with 8-, 10-, or 12-bit video data output.

The XCG-H280E incorporates the GigE Vision® interface standard based on Gigabit Ethernet technology. In response to the growing demand for large-scale systems, this interface enables the camera to transfer a large amount of data over long distances. The use of an Ethernet cable and the availability of a wide variety of peripheral devices contribute to significant cost-cutting benefits when designing a complete vision system. 

By utilizing the features and benefits of the GigE Vision interface, the XCG-H280E camera is ideally suited to the demanding requirements of ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) and machine-vision applications.
