Sony XCD-MV6 - Miniature 1394.B Monochrome Digital Camera

Sony continues to expand its popular XCD 1394.b camera series with the latest introduction of its ultracompact and lightweight, monochrome XCD-MV6. This new progressive scan camera incorporates a 1/3-type wide VGA global shutter CMOS sensor and is one of the smallest 1394.b cameras available on the market. The XCD-MV6 cameras measures 29 x 29 x 19 mm (1 3/16 x 1 3/16 x 3/4 inches) and weighs only 37 grams. Combining high-quality images with a miniaturized body, the XCD-MV6 is ideally suited for space-restricted machine vision and robotic applications.

Key Features:

  • 1/3-type CMOS Sensor
  • VGA Resolution at 60 fps
  • 752 x 480 pixels
  • 500 TV Lines
  • Binning and Partial Scan Functions
  • Ultra-compact & lightweight body 29 x 29 x 19mm/37g
  • IEEE-1394.b Digital Interface
  • Beta Type IEEE 1394 Connector & 8 pin Hirose Connector
  • Various image correction functions Defect pixel correction, fix pattern noise correction and shading correction
  • Variety of Trigger Modes H/W and S/W trigger, Edge/Width, Overlap, Trigger/Strobe Delay, Polarity
  • IIDC Ver. 1.32 Compliant and IEEE-1394b S1600 Compliant - High data transfer rate (up to 1600 Mbps)
  • Broadcast Delivery Function Enables the sending of commands (e.g. software trigger and adjusting camera settings) when used in a multiple camera system.
  • Temporary Image storage function - Allows for delayed transmission (Max. 100 frames)
  • High shock and vibration resistance
