Explore Possibilities With Canon CMOS Sensors

Canon CMOS sensors offer enhanced imaging capabilities for end users developing manufacturing production, inspection, testing, and measurement, as well as packaging and shipping applications. To remain competitive in the ever-shifting global marketplace, manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to enhance processes to speed production, minimize error, and improve product quality while reducing costs. Oftentimes their image capture needs present unique space or environmental challenges. Canon CMOS sensors offer resolutions, speed and sensitivity all in a compact size to deliver high performance imaging for a wide variety of challenging machine vision and general manufacturing applications.

Expanded Capabilities With Pixel-Level Innovations

Canon CMOS sensors feature technical innovations in pixel counts and pixels sizes, sensitivity and low power consumption. A particularly beneficial feature to manufacturing applications is the specialized RGB-NIR color filter array available in each of the CMOS sensors offered. By replacing one of the green filters on a standard color CMOS sensor with a Near Infra-Red (NIR) filter, image processing from these sensors allows for the separation and discrete analysis of the visible and NIR wavelengths. This feature provides a number of added capabilities and can help enhance current solutions already detecting in both the NIR and visible wavelengths with fast, distortion free imaging.
