Mightex’s TCN/TCE-1209-U line camera is a cost-effective high-performance monochrome line CCD camera, based on a single-line, 2048-pixel CCD chip with USB2.0 (480 Mb/s) interface. CCD line cameras have several advantages over their area-array counterparts, including high optical linear resolution that allows systems developers to use the cameras to capture two-dimensional (2-D) images by moving the object or the CCD perpendicularly to the scan line. The TCN/TCE-1209-U is a compact linear camera ideal for a variety of OEM applications in industry process control, optics, biology, spectroscopy and reflection imaging. Setting up the TCN/TCE-1209-U line camera is very easy: the user simply installs the application software (included in the shipping package) and then connects the line camera to the PC using a USB cable. There is no need to install a DAC card, and no external power supply is required. A full-featured SDK and a Linux driver are also available.
