XCD-SX910UV invisible light spectrum IEEE1394/Firewire Progressive Scan UV CCD Camera

For those applications that require a camera capable of capturing images using the "invisible" light spectrum, Sony's new XCD-SX910UV near ultraviolet, high resolution, digital video camera is the answer. The XCD-SX910UV camera is equipped with all the new functionality found in Sony's new XCD-SX910 camera PLUS a new CCD with improved sensitivity (~200nm versus ~230nm) compared to the XCD-SX900UV camera. The new XCD-SX910UV is a black and white C-mount camera that has sensitivity in the near-UV area (200 to 380 nm). Incorporating a 1/2 type IT Progressive Scan UV CCD, the XCD-SX910UV captures clear images of minute surface details when used with UV illumination systems. Like Sony's XC-EI camera series, the XCD-SX910UV has a broad spectral response and can be easily combined with different filters for specific applications (e.g., UV only pass filter for UV imaging applications).

Inheriting all the excellent features of the XCD-SX910, this new UV digital camera has an IEEE 1394 digital interface, producing new levels of precise and detailed images. In addition, its one-piece design with high shock and vibration tolerance makes the XCD-SX910UV ideal for use in demanding semiconductor inspection, ultraviolet microscopy, FA precision inspection and surface inspection applications.
