1/2" Monohrome Progressive Scan 1.4 MP Camera With Mini-CL Interface

The CM-140MCL is a monochrome progressive scan camera with 1.4 million pixels resolution and Mini-CL interface.  CM 140MCL utilizes a Sony ICX267 CCD and outputs 31 full frames/second in continuous (free-run) mode and up to 30 frames/second in external trigger modes. Higher frame rates can be achieved by using the Partial Scan or Vertical binning modes.
As an option, the CM140MCLcamera can be ordered in a Power-over-Camera Link version (PoCL), eliminating the need for a separate connector for power.
