The CV-A1 utilizes a Sony ICX407BLA CCD imager, which provides increased sensitivity at wavelengths as short as 150 nm for UV applications. The camera offers 1.4-megapixel monochrome resolution (1380 x 1035) at 16 fps, but over a unique analog progressive scan interface (non-interlaced).
Excellent UV sensitivity
The CV-A1-UV is equipped with the Sony ICX407BLA CCD imager which features a Lumogen coating for enhanced UV sesnitivity as low as 150 nm.
Quartz glass protection
Traditional CCD cover glass blocks UV imaging, but glassless imagers can be easily dirtied or damaged. The CV-A1-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
The CV-A1-UV features a low profile design with top and bottom mounting holes, enabling it to fit easily into many types of machine vision systems.
Here are a few applications where CV-A1- UV cameras are especially suitable
CV-A1-UV cameras provide the ultraviolet sensitivity needed for a number of specialized machine vision applications.
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.
