Lumenera Corp. has introduced what it says is a line of high performance USB 3.0 cameras based on Sony's EXview HAD II ICX674 sensor. The Lt365R runs at twice the speed of other USB 3.0 cameras on this sensor at 53fps at full 1936 x 1456 resolution.

Running 53fps at full resolution or 66 at an HDTV resolution of 1920 x 1088, the series takes advantage of Lumenera's memory buffer technology so frames are not lost while running the camera at the sensor's maximum output. Running at twice the speed of other USB 3.0 cameras on this image sensor, the Lt365R is intended for industrial and scientific applications requiring incredibly fast data and reliable image delivery including traffic, tolling, life sciences, slide scanning, high-speed inspection and machine vision.

The Lt365R family boasts a 2.8MP progressive scan sensor equipped with a global shutter for capturing high-speed images without blur. The Sony ICX674 used in this camera claims to deliver an amazing level of performance combining speed, sensitivity and low noise, leveraging leading edge technologies from Sony. Lumenera's "R" designation identifies that these products has been engineered to fulfill the demands of many research applications by significantly reducing the read and dark current noise. This combination provides imaging in difficult lighting situations, or even into the NIR range.

Its compact, lightweight yet robust design, measuring 43 x 43 x 65mm, and four mounting points on all four sides, ensure easy integration into original equipment manufacturer (OEM) solutions with tight spaces. The fully locking USB 3.0 cabling and digital interface provide a simple plug-and-play installation. A costly framegrabber is not required. Simplified I/O cabling is provided through a locking Hirose connector supporting external power input along with one optically isolated output, one optically isolated input and two configurable I/O ports.

The Lt365R, available in color and monochrome, are now available and shipping.
