CYPRESS, CA --- Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc., a global leader in CIS technology, introduces an industrial line scan camera with imaging sensors for wide format imaging and a CoaXPress® interface for machine vision applications. The KD-CX Series Line Scan Camera incorporates an imaging sensor, lens and LED lights in one space-saving package.
Key features of the KD-CX Series include:
• Low image distortion
• Electric shutter
• Binning function (600, 300, 200 and 150 dpi)
• Switchable color/mono output
The KD-CX Series Line Scan Camera is available in three scan widths – 367, 587 and 807mm – and uses a tri-linear color sensor. The CIS camera’s acquisition speed is 140 meters per minute at 600 dpi resolution in 24- or 30-bit RGB. Software settings allow users to select lower resolutions for faster acquisition speeds. Target applications for the KD-CX Series include print inspection, glass inspection, printed circuit boards and web-based processes.
The KD-CX Series all-in-one form factor can simplify system design for OEMs. For end-user organizations, fewer components in the camera’s design can reduce the cost of a line scan application, and in some cases, might be the only practical imaging solution in a confined area.
Mitsubishi Electric has provided CIS imaging devices to the scanning industry for more than three decades. The KD-CX Series camera complements Mitsubishi Electric’s KD-AX color and KD-MX monochrome series cameras that use a CameraLink® interface. The Mitsubishi Electric’s line of CIS modules is used globally in document scanning, copiers, ATMs, banknote inspection and check scanning.
