It is compatible with standard Gigabit Ethernet hardware, ports, and cables, eliminating the expense of specialized interface cards or frame grabbers. It delivers enough bandwidth to stream noncompressed RGB 24-bit color video at up to 30 fps at 1,280 X 960 resolution (SXGA) over CAT5e cabling to a host PC positioned up to 300 ft away. The camera targets such color applications as high-speed inspection, factory automation, machine vision, and robotics. A honeycomb layout of octagonal photodiodes gives the camera more horizontal/vertical resolution than conventional CCDs, while also improving sensitivity, signal-to-noise ratio, and dynamic range. Camera features include progressive scanning, random trigger, electronic shutter ( 1 /15,000 to 8 sec), and external trigger. The camera weighs 200 gm and comes in a case 54X 43 X 44.5 mm.
