The XCL High Resolution Series from Sony is the perfect fit for a variety of industrial inspection applications such as microscopy, semiconductors, electronic parts, and display panels.

All the cameras in this series conform to the Camera Link standard. Joining the popular XCL High Resolution Series is the extremely compact XCL-U100. This new camera boasts high-resolution images of UXGA resolution, similar to the existing XCL-U1000/U1000C cameras. However, the XCL-U100 camera is PoCL*-capable, providing users with single-cable operation. The XCL Series delivers outstanding functionality and excellent picture quality, bringing a new level of power and effectiveness to industrial applications.

High Resolution Image Capture
The XCL-U100 camera is equipped with a 1/1.8 type progressive scan IT CCD that provides UXGA resolution, which is ideally suited for a variety of industrial applications requiring high-quality images

Supports Camera Link Standard

All cameras in the XCL High Resolution Series are equipped with the industry standard digital Camera Link interfaces. This allows users to quickly capture high-resolution images thanks to simple connectivity with machine vision systems. The XCL-U100 is PoCL-capable, providing users with added flexibility when integrating inspection environments.


Partial Scan Function

If you select only a specific area of an image to be scanned, the reduced data size and increased frame rate will minimize image processing time. The XCL-U100 supports both horizontal partial scanning and vertical partial scanning to accelerate users’ inspection tasks.


Hardware Processing

The XCL High Resolution Series cameras have a number of beneficial real-time hardware pre-processing functions such as a 3x3 filter, DTL filter, gammacorrection, and a binarisation mechanism that can be used to emphasise the edges of an object or to change the contrast of an image. These functions provide frame grabbers with images that are easy to process, thus minimising the load on the PC.


Compact and Lightweight, with Low Power Consumption 

The compact size of the XCL-U100 makes it ideal for space restricted environments. Plus, its low power consumption can help to reduce energy costs.
