Lw565 5.0 Megapixel Digital Camera from Lumenera

Lumenera’s Lw565 is an ideal solution for a wide variety of industrial and scientific applications requiring high sensitivity and vivid color reproduction such as traffic, machine vision, 3D biometrics, ophthalmology and low light imaging applications.

High Resoluion CCD Sensor with Global Shutter

With a fully global electronic shutter and a small image integration time, this camera can capture high-speed motion images with no blur. The scientific grade option is built under a strictly controlled clean room environment to ensure that there are no visible defects found in the optical path. This is a key requirement for applications using collimated light sources.

Vivid Color and NIR Streaming Video Control

The Lw565 utilizes a high quality sensor featuring a 2448 x 2048 resolution and a selectable 8 or 14-bit output, providing exceptional color images in the visible and Near Infrared (NIR) light spectrum.

Full streaming of uncompressed video along with still image captures are easily controlled through a set of stable and reliable USB device drivers. Region of interest and binning modes allow the camera to run at faster frame rates (23 fps at 640 x 480 resolution) while only providing the image data you need.

Image capture synchronization is achievable using either a hardware or software trigger and is complemented by 32 MB of on board memory for frame buffering to ensure delivery of each image to your application.

Both color and monochrome product models are available, as well as board level (Lw560) and custom form factors.

Maximize Camera Performance Within Your Own Vision Application

The Lumenera Camera SDK provides a full suite of features and functions that allow you to maximize the performance of your camera within your application. Full inline IntelliSense autocompletion and documentation is provided with the .NET API interface and is accompanied by a full API manual describing all the camera functions and properties.
