Smart Cameras
Superb Vision with the Intelligence of a PC
Sony’s XCI-SX1 and XCI-V3 Smart Cameras are the perfect union of a high-end CCD camera with a complete PC – in a
small, industrial, networkable package. These Smart cameras capture and process high-resolution images
and can control peripheral devices. Unlike conventional machine vision cameras, images captured
by these smart cameras are processed within the camera and the processed data is directly
transmitted through Ethernet connection over a network. These cameras eliminate the
need for conventional PC-based image-processing systems and allows for simple
setup and efficient factory workflow.
The XCI-SX1 incorporates a 1/2-type SXGA (1280 x 1024) progressive scan
CCD. The XCI-V3 is equipped with a 1/3-type VGA (640 x 480) progressive
scan CCD. Both cameras include a high-performance and flexible AMD
Geode™ GX533 processor with either built-in Linux® OS or Windows® XPE OS.
In addition, these cameras incorporate 256MB SDRAM and a 100BaseTX/10Base-T interface for network connectivity. The XCI-SX1 and XCI-V3
are designed to allow OEMs, system integrators and end-users to install a
variety of image-processing software applications (see list below) or to
develop and apply customized applications to meet specific user needs.
With its high-performance, flexible integration and versatile interfaces the durably designed XCI-SX1 and XCI-V3
smart cameras are ideal for a wide range of machine vision applications such as object recognition, ID Reading,
inspection, measurement, alignment and more.
FEATURES
High Performance 400MHz Geode
GX533 Processor
Horizontal and Vertical Partial
Scanning Function
• x86-compatible architecture
• 256MB main memory (DDR-SDRAM) and
1MB flash memory
• Integrated Compact FlashTM memory card –
128MB for Linux model & 1GB for XPe model
• Low power consumption
• Allows users to select a specific scanning
area to reduce data size and increase frame
rate, which minimizes image processing time.
Various Interfaces
• 100Base-TX/10Base-T interface for network
operation
• Monitor output
• USB 1.1 interface
• RS-232C serial interface and digital
input/output allow cameras to be
connected with external equipment such
as sensors, strobe lights, and
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC).
Binning Function
• Vertical binning combines image data for
every two lines vertically to increase the frame
rate, which minimizes image processing time.
• Horizontal binning combines image data
for every two pixels horizontally, thereby
increasing the sensitivity, and shortening the
capture speed, which minimizes image
processing time.
Accurate Image Capture Timing
1/2-type (XCI-SX1) and 1/3-type (XCI-V3),
Progressive Scan CCDs With Square
Pixels
• Equipped with an external trigger input
and a trigger delay function of up to four
seconds in 1 ms intervals, these cameras can
accurately capture images of fast moving
objects such as in production lines. What‘s
more, the XCI-V3 is equipped with a strobe
adjustment function to accurately time an
external strobe light.

High-Quality Images
• The XCI-V3 camera features a 3 x 3 filter
that can be used to emphasize the edges
of an object or to change the contrast so
that image details stand out.
