The XCI-SX1 is Sony's first Smart camera in a new series of products for the emerging machine vision industry. This monochrome camera is designed to provide OEMs, system integrators and vision tool manufacturers a rugged, robust component, combining the imager, intelligence and interface in a single plug-in modular that is simple to set up and easy to integrate for efficient factory workflow. Integrators can install a variety of image-processing software applications or develop and apply customized applications to meet specific user needs. Unlike conventional machine vision cameras, images captured by the XCISX1 are processed within the camera and the processed data is directly transmitted to a PC over a network.
