With embedded shading correction, XCL-C Series cameras minimize the uneven image intensity often caused by lighting and/or the lens. Their internal hardware processing reduces the need for external image correction that is normally performed via a frame grabber board and PC. This handy function reduces the processing load of the PC, and simplifies the processing task. In addition, these cameras are equipped with three optional lighting settings to capture clear images in varying lighting conditions.
XCL-C Series cameras can automatically minimize defective pixels (e.g., white and black dots) within the entire imaging area directly inside the camera. This feature helps simplify image processing.
Each camera comes with an internal temperature sensor. The host device can receive temperature information by issuing a command. This eliminates the need for a separate sensor, and simplifies system configuration.
The XCL-C Series is equipped with a saturation signal control function to allow the amount of saturation signal charge on the CCD to be increased or decreased via software commands. For example when capturing dark objects, the user can increase the amount of saturation signal charge elevating the camera’s sensitivity to improvethe picture quality instead of using a long exposure time.
