Windowless USB2.0 Unbuffered CMOS 8-bit Monochrome 1.3MP Cameras

Mightex USB 2.0 monochrome cameras are designed for a wide variety of applications such as machine vision, digital microscopy and medical imaging, where quality, ease of use, and cost-effectiveness are crucial. With a USB2.0 interface and powerful PC software, the camera delivers excellent quality images, and the frame rate can be as high as 24 fps in full resolution and up to 600 fps using ROI mode. In addition, a user-friendly GUI based application software and an SDK are provided for custom software development. The cameras have 4-pin GPIOs and optional built-in LED drivers. A DirectShow driver and a TWAIN driver are also provided in order to easily link the cameras with users' applications.

Windowless cameras are particularly useful for applications that are sensitive to multiple reflections due to the existence of the glass window in front of the CMOS sensor. One example of such an application is laser beam profiling.
