S-Series Ultra-Compact USB2.0 Monochrome 1.3MP CMOS Cameras

$179.00USD$199.00USD

Mightex S-Series compact USB 2.0 cameras are optimized for machine-vision applications, and they can also be used for a wide variety of other applications such as digital microscopy and medical imaging, where quality, ease of use, and cost-effectiveness are crucial. These cameras have external trigger-in, strobe-out, and GPIOs. Monochrome cameras often exhibit 20% higher spatial resolution than their color counterparts because no pixel interpolation is necessary. Without a Bayer color filter on the sensor, monochrome cameras are also more sensitive than color sensors especially in near IR and UV regions. Frame rate can be as high as 20 fps in full resolution and up to 150 fps using ROI mode. In addition, a user-friendly GUI based application software and an SDK are provided for custom software development. A USB command set protocol is also provided for non-Windows based applications.

USB2.0 powered – no need for external power supply.

 

[Note: Board-level cameras are designed for OEM applications, when a system-level enclosure is usually provided. One should be properly grounded when handling a board-level camera, in order to avoid Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) related damages. ESD related damages (which are considered as mis-handling) are not covered by product warranty. For lab use, it is strongly recommended that one choose an enclosed camera, instead of a board-level one.]

Standard Packing List:

  1. 1x Camera (w/o an imaging lens)
  2. 1x IR-cut filter (pre-installed, retail version only)
  3. 1x USB Cable (Note: Trigger cable is NOT included and needs to be ordered separately)
  4. 1x CD (containing User’s Guide, SDK Manual, Windows-based application software with GUI, DirectShow driver, TWAIN Driver, and example codes in VB, C++ and Delphi)

Notes:
(1) CD. If a customer orders multiple units of cameras, (for each camera model) only one (1) CD would be included in the shipping package, unless otherwise instructed and in this case there would be a nominal charge of $1 per additional CD;
(2) For a C-mount enclosed camera order, a CS-mount enclosed camera would be shipped along with a CS-to-C mount adapter (P/N: ACC-CAM-CSC). For details of converting a CS-mount camera to a C-mount camera, please click here.
