Featuring outstanding picture quality, high-speed image capturing, and the digital 1394b interface, the XCD Series is perfect for high-quality industrial and manufacturing solutions.The XCD-SX90/SX90CR employs a unique CCD that achieves a frame rate of up to 30 fps at 1280 x 960 (SXGA) resolution. With this wide range of solutions, each with feature-rich benefits, it's never been easier to select the right camera for your specific machine vision applications. The XCD Series of cameras adopts the IEEE 1394b interface that supports the IIDC protocol. By using this interface, users can transfer images to a host PC at speeds of up to 800 Mb/s.

Moreover, because multiple cameras can be connected in a daisy-chain configuration, users can enjoy the benefits of simplified operation in a multi-camera system. When these XCD cameras are daisy-chained, Bus Synchronization and Broadcast Delivery are available. With Bus Synchronization, users can capture images from different angles simultaneously simply by sending a single trigger from the host PC. Broadcast Delivery allows users to capture images from multiple cameras using a software trigger instead of a hardware trigger, which helps to minimize the occurrence of false triggers. This function also allows users to change the settings of multiple cameras simultaneously.

Their compact design and rugged body enables the XCD Series to be integrated into a wide variety of industrial environments.
In addition, the XCD series incorporates features such as partial scanning, binning, and a hardware LUT (Look Up Table).

Excellent Picture Quality/ High Frame Rates

The XCD-SX90/XCD-SX90CR employs an exclusive Sony CCD and achieves up to 30 fps with SXGA image quality.

IEEE 1394b Digital Interface

The XCD Series employs the IEEE 1394b interface which attains high data-transfer rates of up to 800 Mb/s. Since the XCD Series is backward compatible with IEEE 1394a, these cameras can be easily integrated with legacy 1394a systems.

Daisy-chain Configuration

The XCD cameras are equipped with two IEEE 1394b ports allowing multiple cameras to be daisy-chained and controlled from a single PC. A daisy-chain configuration with a large number of cameras (up to 62 cameras can be daisy chained) is made possible by their EIAJ 12-pin connector, which allows external power to be supplied to the cameras.

Bus Synchronization

The XCD Series also features a bus synchronization function enabling users to simultaneously capture images from different angles with multiple cameras by sending a single trigger to all cameras from the host PC. This feature is not only useful for viewing images from different angles, but can be used to recreate a 3D image for more detailed inspection.

Broadcast Delivery

The broadcast delivery function of the XCD Series can be used to send a software trigger to multiple cameras in a daisy chain. This not only facilitates connections, but eliminates the need for using a hardware trigger which can produce false triggers due to noise. In addition, the broadcast delivery function can be used to simultaneously change camera settings such as shutter speed, exposure, white balance, gain, and more.

Bulk Trigger Mode

The XCD Series has a bulk trigger mode to allow the capture of up to 16 images in rapid succession using either a software or hardware trigger. This can be used to capture multiple images of an item at different shutter speeds. By doing so, specific areas of that item can be clearly seen without changing the lighting. Also this allows a composite image with a wide dynamic range to be reproduced.

Image Buffer

The XCD Series is equipped with an image buffer, which serves as temporary storage for captured images for later transmission or retransmission. This function allows users to maximize bandwidth in multiple-camera operations or reconfirm specific images as required.

Vertical and Horizontal Partial Scanning

By selecting a particular area of an image to be scanned, users of the XCD Series can reduce data size and increase frame rate to minimize processing time.

Vertical and Horizontal Binning

The Vertical binning feature of the XCD series combines image data for every two lines vertically resulting in increased frame rates and reduced processing time. Horizontal binning combines image data for every two pixels horizontally to achieve greater sensitivity, faster capture speeds, and quicker processing.
