Hitachi Denshi has introduces the KP-F102

Hitachi Denshi has introduced the KP-F102 monochrome megapixel camera with partial scanning, enabling frame rates of up to a maximum of 145 fps, and RS-232C remote control of the CPU providing a wide range of parameters to be set remotely.

Suitable for a wide range of image processing applications, with EIA-644 (LDVS) 10 bits digital output at 20.2Mhz, a megapixel 2/3" interline CCD image sensor using square pixels with non-interlaced progressive scanning.

The KP-F102 employs a CCD with 1300 x 1030 pixels, operates at 12 frames per second, has a full frame shutter to 1/10,000 second, frame on demand function with a two trigger mode for ultra high speed shuttering, internal or external synchronisation and can withstand shocks of up to 30G and vibration up to 3G.

High resolution monochrome digital output camera with a 1.339 million square pixels CCD with frame on demand function suitable for many image processing applications including, inspection, pattern recognition, high resolution image filing, license plate recognition and X-ray image processing and inspection, with partial scan and RS-232C functions.

Major Features
