New Sentech CoaXPress cameras

  Sentech CoaXPress Camera

Sentech has introduced a brand new line of CoaXPress cameras that feature 4 or 12 Megapixel cameras running at 142 or 180 FPS. Both of these models feature a global shutter sensor which will capture brilliant high resolution images at high speeds with little to no motion blur. Both of these cameras are available in monochrome or colour models.

CoaXPress (CXP) is an asymmetric high speed serial communication standard over coaxial cable. The most common application is to interface cameras to computers (via frame grabbers) on applications (such as machine vision) which involve automated acquisition and analysis of images.

January 2017

Sentech announce two new GigE Vision cameras with 8.3MP and 12MP Starvis sensors.

Sentech GigE Vision cameras

While getting ready for the launch of their cameras with 8MP and 12MP Sony Pregius sensors, Sentech have brought to the market two very keenly priced cameras using the Sony Starvis CMOS sensors.  STC-SCS853POE features a 1/ 2.5” format sensor with 3840x2160 pixel resolution at 12.7fps, while STC-SCS1242POE features a 1/1.7” format sensor with 4000x3000 resolution at 8.7fps.  These new models deliver high performance at low cost, and with a rolling shutter (global reset) should be seen as competing against cameras using the established Aptina sensors.   Hard/soft trigger facility is standard, as well as a flexible ROI.  Currently only colour models are available.  The cameras come in the familiar robust Sentech industrial housings (see image), and can be powered via external PSU or via PoE.

September 2016

New Sentech fast USB3Vision camera with Pregius sensor.

Sentech continue introducing new models featuring the new GS-CMOS Pregius family of sensors from Sony.  One of the recent additions is based  on the IMX174 sensor, with 1920x1200 (2.3MP) resolution, and 163fps at  full resolution, thanks to the fast USB3Vision interface.  The camera can  be  operated in a user-defined ROI and can achieve 378fps at 640x480 (VGA) resolution. The global shutter is particularly good at  capturing moving objects.  Multiple trigger options are available.  The high speed capability makes it one of the best performers in its class.  The sensor format is 1/1.2”, which requires 1” format lenses when  operating at full resolution.  The camera comes with user-friendly software and SDK (via download).  Both monochrome and colour versions are available, as STC-MBS241U3V and STC-MCS241U3V respectively.  The cameras are supplied as a very compact 28x28x40mm industrial package fitted with a C-mount.
