Production managers are under constant pressure to increase the output quality and productivity of their facilities while at the same time reducing the total costs of manufacturing lines. Furthermore, the new Industry 4.0 revolution calls for utmost flexibility in production.
The key device is image sensor.
Sony‘s CMOS image sensors using "Pregius" technology with the higher speed, resolution, image quality and the rich feature provide unprecedented opportunities to build very flexible machine vision systems with high accuracy and throughput at moderate costs.
Sony‘s CMOS image sensors using “Pregius” technology are also capable to start and stop the light exposure time for all pixels simultaneously, (known as global shutter). CMOS image sensor technology has continued to evolve with unprecedented advances in resolution, frame rate, sensitivity, readout-noise, high dynamic range and control features that enable new applications in industrial imaging.
Pregius technology is possible to implement applications with an image quality and speed that was inconceivable with CCD technology. And, Pregius are a replacement to their CCD equivalents.
|CMOS Image Sensor||CCD Image Sensor|
|Electronic Shutter||Global Shutter||Rolling Shutter||Global Shutter|
|Frame Rate||Very High||High||Standard|
|Image Quality||Very High||Standard||High|
Pregius technology can offer the suitable products for each application. With machine vision, a high-spec type variant for leading-edge machine vision applications and a standard-spec variant for standard machine vision are available.
