1.4 MP UV-sensitive area scan camera
The CM-140GE-UV is a monochrome area scan camera equipped with a special UV-sensitive CCD. It provides 1.4-megapixel resolution at 16 frames per second, with 8-bit or 10-bit output. Features like ROI readout and a sequencer function make it a versatile performer for a wide range of applications requiring sensitivity below 400 nm.
Equipped with the Sony ICX407BLA CCD imager, the CM-140GE-UV is able to extend its sensitivity to below 200 nm, allowing visualization of smaller features than those which can be seen using visible light.
Quartz glass protection
Traditional CCD cover glass blocks UV imaging, but glassless imagers can be easily dirtied or damaged. The CM-140GE-UV’s imager is protected by a quartz glass cover which protects the sensor’s surface while allowing UV rays to pass.
Compact and versatile
Like other C Series cameras, the CM-140GE-UV features a low profile design with top and bottom mounting holes, enabling them to fit easily into many types of machine vision systems. A standard GigE Vision interface offers easy cabling and networking options.
Here are a few applications where C Series UV-sensitive cameras are especially suitable
C Series UV-sensitive cameras are the perfect starting point for a number of specialized machine vision applications.
Semiconductors UV cameras let inspection systems utilize extremely short light wavelengths so the smallest defects or surface features can be imaged and analyzed.
Vision systems for track and trace, pill sorting, inspecting vials and ampoules, and many other applications, often need to be able to “see” invisible product codes, lot numbers, or other markings.
Security printing inspection
Bank notes, passports, lottery tickets, and other similar items may use special security markings only visible in the UV spectrum.
Electronics and corona inspection
Solar panels and other types of electronics may need UV imaging to look for signs of current leakage or other defects. UV cameras are also used to inspect power lines and transformers where non-visible “coronas” can indicate electrical problems.
UV lighting and imaging can detect damaged skin and subsurface issues at early stages before they become serious.
