High Sensitivity 2/3" Monochrome Progressive Scan CCD 1.4 MP Camera With NIR Capabilities

The CM-141MCL is a 1.4 megapixel monochrome CCD camera with Mini Camera Link interface. The camera features a high sensitivity CCD chip, high signal to noise ratio (> 58 dB), 30 fps in triggered mode and a compact house, making them particularly suitable for imaging applications in machine vision, medical imaging, food sorting, traffic and surveillance applications.

The CM141MCL is designed around the ICX285 2/3" progressive scan CCD (1392 x 1040 pixels). This sensor uses its 6.45 μm pixel size and improved microlens technology to provide higher overall sensitivity (as low as 0.03 lux) with low smear characteristics. It also features extended spectral response in the near-IR region offering roughly 4X the sensitivity of conventional sensors at a 945 nm wavelength.  CM-141MCL camera run with 30 frames per second in triggered mode and continuous operation with full resolution. A variety of trigger modes are provided including reset continuous triggering (RCT) which enables the camera to operate in continuous mode while awaiting a trigger signal.
The CM-141MCL is available with a factory-installed Right Angle Adapter. The adapter enables the camera to "look" at a 90 degree angle and is designed for a range of inspection tasks where physical access on production lines is limited.
