Ultra-High Resolution and Speed

By incorporating close to the same number of pixels as photoreceptors in the human eye, the Canon 120MXS CMOS sensor delivers ultra-high 120 MP resolution in a compact design. At the same time, pixel-level innovations allow for faster readout speeds with lower noise ratios at 9.4fps – or higher when reducing the amount of readout lines. Uncover the finest details and find new clarity in industrial vision with the 120MXS CMOS Sensor from Canon. This CMOS sensor is available in monochrome (120MXSM), color (120MXSC), and with a specialized RGB-NIR color filter array (120MXSI).

Specialized RGB-NIR Pixel Filter Array

By replacing one of the green filters on a standard color CMOS sensor with a Near Infra-Red (NIR) filter, image processing from this sensor allows for the separation of visible and NIR spectrums. Discrete analysis of these bands from a single image simplifies dual sensor systems by reducing size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements, provides added capabilities to systems that can benefit from the additional band, and enhances current solutions already detecting in both the NIR and visible wavelengths such as precision agriculture with the benefit of 120 MP resolution.

The Canon 120MXS CMOS sensor shares a Floating Diffusion Node between four pixels instead of one, allowing for smaller readout circuitry and larger photodiodes which allows for increased sensitivity. Small 2.2µm pixels leverage a wire layer to prevent crosstalk, contributing to superior image quality, while progressive pixel reading of 28 digital output channels deftly handles the enormous amount of data from 122 million effective pixels.
