Additional Information


XC-555 is an ultra-compact, integrated 1/2 type IT CCD color
camera ideally suited for a wide variety of applications such
as machine vision, multimedia and remote monitoring. The XC-555
is designed so that a video output signal can be obtained by
only providing a power supply of 12 V DC. Its ultra-compact,
one-piece design eliminates the need for a bulky CCU, allowing
the XC-555 camera to be easily installed in space-restricted
areas. The XC-555 is a direct replacement for the XC-999 and
XC-777A cameras (1/2 vs. 1/3 inch optics).
