DVC component news

Sony announced three new industrial camera modules which have been added to its 2020 line-up, all of which are available to ship immediately. The XCG-CG40 (b/w), the XCL-CG160 (b/w) and XCL-CG160C (colour)

The three new modules use the Sony Pregius 1/2.9-type global-shutter CMOS sensor, which allows images to be captured in low light levels (b/w 0.5 lx, colour 12 lx), and a C-mount lens.


They are ideally suited to a wide range of industrial and ITS applications including fruit, bottle or medicine inspection (XCL-CG160/C) or position and alignment functions in small/compact robots (XCG-CG40).

Features and specifications

The new CameraLink modules’ measure 29 x 29 x 30 mm and weigh 53g.
The GigE module measures 29 x 29 x 42 and weighs 65g.

They feature a signal to noise ratio of >50 dB, a dynamic region of interest, and an automatic- / manually-controllable shutter speed range of 60s to 1/100,000s. Additional features include area gain and defect correction with the XCL-CG160/C modules also adding shading correction.

All three modules can be fired via hardware and software triggers, with modes including free run, edge detection, width detection and burst trigger; the XCG-CG40 is also able to act as both the synchronisation master and slave device in a network using the IEEE1588 precision timing protocol, eliminating the need for dedicated timing devices and backups.

The modules enable power over CameraLink (PoCL) / power over Ethernet (PoE / IEEE802.3af) or via a DC +12 V input.

The cameras are able to operate at temperatures of -6 to +45oC, with a performance guaranteed temperature range of 0 to +40oC (32 to 104oF), and humidity levels between 20 and 80%.

All three are able to withstand vibrations to 10 G (20 Hz to 200 Hz) as well as shocks of up to 70 G.

The XCL-CG160/XCL-CG160C have a MTBF of 76,315 hours, with the XCG-CG40 having a MTBF of 58,525 hours.
