The GO-5101-PMCL uses its Camera Link interface to provide a more than 50 percent frame rate improvement compared to the GO-5101-PGE while maintaining its affordable price point.
The GO-5101-PMCL provides 5-megapixel resolution with a 2/3" optical format for wider lens choices than 1" cameras. It utilizes the Sony Pregius IMX264 CMOS imager with 3.45-micron pixels, making it an excellent replacement camera for customers with older 2/3" 5-megapixel CCD cameras interested in moving up to a higher performance CMOS alternative.
Two models are available. The GO-5101M-PMCL provides monochrome output, while the GO-5101C-PMCL provides raw Bayer color output for host-based interpolation. Both have a resolution of 2464 x 2056 pixels and can output full resolution 8-bit images at 35.6 fps. 10- or 12-bit output is also available in either standard or packed formats. Note: 12-bit output does not support certain image preprocessing functions such as shading correction or black-level adjustment. See manual for details.
The GO-5101-PMCL boasts exceptionally low noise and a standard dynamic range of more than 60 dB. Its global shutter offers an exposure range from 14 µs to 8 seconds (14 µs minimum in 10-bit/12-bit modes) and has extremely low shutter leakage (-94 dB) for outstanding image quality regardless of exposure time or lighting conditions.
Like other Go Series cameras, the GO-5101-PMCL is built to perform in industrial environments with an MTBF rating of more than 200,000 hours. Despite its small size (see dimensions below) and weight (46 grams), the GO-5101-PMCL carries an 80G shock rating, 10G vibration rating, and a standard operating temperature range of -5°C to +45°C.
Unlike the GO-5100 model, the GO-5101-PMCL does not offer a multi-ROI mode. It does, however, support single ROI capability, asymmetrical 1x2, 2x1, or 2x2 binning (monochrome model), a user programmable look-up table for gamma customization, ALC (integrated auto gain and auto shutter), delayed readout for multi-camera applications, a sequencer trigger function with up to 128 indexes and two operating modes, auto white balance (color model), pixel blemish compensation, and block-based shading correction.
Power can be supplied via the Power over Mini Camera Link interface (PMCL) or through a separate 4-pin connector that also offers extra GPIO connections.
