Analog progressive scan output

The CV-A1 provides output over a traditional analog coaxial connector but with a full progressive scan readout that supports higher resolution than standard interlaced output and avoids “comb effect” interlaced artifacts.

CCD image quality

The CV-A1 features the Sony ICX205AL CCD with 4.65-micron square pixels and a smearless readout mode for low noise images with excellent contrast and dynamic range.

Partial scanning and binning support

The CV-A1 includes three partial scanning settings that can increase frame rates up to 75 fps. Also included is support for 1x2, 2x1, and 2x2 binning for up to 4X normal sensitivity.

Here are a few applications where CV-A1 industrial cameras are especially suitable

CV-A1 analog progressive scan cameras can be used in a variety of machine vision applications.

Factory automation equipment

Traditional coaxial cabling can cover large distances with good noise immunity to surrounding machinery.

Medical equipment

Inspecting seals, tubing, syringes, and many other medical items can utilize the many features of the CV-A1.


CV-A1 cameras offer better resolution than traditional analog interlaced cameras for finer precision in metrology systems.

Electronics inspection

CV-A1 cameras are adaptable to many types of inspection systems for sorting components, checking bare boards, and analyzing component placement.
