The CV-A11, a compact progressive scan 1/3-inch monochrome CCD camera, is a unique offering at its price point. It features a 659 (h) x 494 (v) VGA-resolution Sony ICX424AL imager, and a frame rate of 30 frames/sec at full resolution. It offers “switchless” setup via RS-232 and software-configurable partial scan (58-124 frames/sec) for faster acquisition in applications where higher frame rates are required. The CV-A11 features an RS-232C command protocol that allows camera setup from a PC or other terminal to be executed precisely the same way every time, an advantage in clean rooms and other embedded applications. Also due to the switchless configuration, reliability is an outstanding 100,000 hours calculated MTBF (mean time between failure). The CV-A11 offers these features and low power consumption in a compact 29mm x 44mm x 66mm package. The camera is software-configurable for 1/2, 1/3 or 1/6 of the vertical resolution imaging area. By eliminating unnecessary pixels from the image area, scan rates of up to 124 frames/sec are achieved. The CV-A11 is well suited for a wide variety of inspection and QA applications, including semiconductors, electronics, automotive and consumer products, pharmaceutical packaging, bottle fill-level inspection, and date code inspection.The CV-A11 is available now. Volume pricing is available upon request. JAI PULNiX, Inc.
