London, ON, August 12th 2020 - IO Industries Inc. announces a new model in the Victorem™ camera series based on Gpixel's new GMAX0505RF 26.2MP global shutter CMOS image sensor with enhanced Near IR sensitivity. Available now, this model expands the range of sensor options within the Victorem series with class-leading NIR sensitivity for demanding applications in these invisible wavelengths.
With a maximum image resolution of 5120 x 5120, this model has the highest resolution in the Victorem™ family. The camera's dual CXP-6 interface delivers a maximum frame rate of 41fps at full resolution.
"Typically in CMOS image sensors, NIR sensitivity is enhanced by increasing the thickness of the sensor's epitaxial layer. However, this introduces a corresponding decrease in modulation transfer function (MTF) and limits the effective resolution of the sensor. Gpixel's new Red Fox technology applies a more surgical approach, modifying the sensor's sensitive layer to achieve an optimal balance between NIR sensitivity and MTF. The GMAX0505RF achieves a QE of almost 34% at 850 nm and 14% at 940 nm."
The Victorem™ CoaXPress series is a broad range of compact industrial video cameras featuring high performance CMOS image sensors. The small size of the Victorem cameras, used with compact C-mount optics, enables high-resolution imaging within a smaller footprint, as well as lower weight and lower power consumption.
The Victorem™ 262G41-CX supports single or dual-link CoaXPress video output for high-speed video transmission at up to 12.5Gbps. High-resolution video can be rapidly sent to real-time image processing systems or uncompressed video recorders such as the DVR Express® Core 2 series from IO Industries. Low-cost and flexible coaxial video cabling is used with long cable lengths possible (up to 40m for full-speed applications, over 100m in reduced-speed cases). A single coaxial cable can, in addition to transmitting video from the camera, supply power and synchronization triggers and allow configuration of all camera parameters.
Highlights of the Victorem™ 262G41NCX camera include:
- 1.1" format CMOS sensor w. 5120 x 5120 resolution
- 2.5µm square pixels with charge domain global shutter technology
- Up to 41 fps output at full resolution with 8/10/12-bit formats
- Monochrome and color models available
