INTRODUCTION
In response to customer demand, Sony is proud to introduce a broad selection of new XCL CameraLink Series
cameras, ranging from VGA to 5M in monochrome and color versions. With their compact size and variety of
resolution options, these new cameras make it easy and affordable for customers to migrate from analog to digital.
The new XCL-C280 (monochrome) and XCL-C280C (color) cameras incorporate a 1/1.8-type EXview HAD CCD II™
sensor which provides high sensitivity with a 2.8M resolution. In addition to inheriting Sony’s XCL Series camera
features, such as Bulk Trigger and Sequential Trigger modes, these new cameras also incorporate some unique
features including Shading Correction, Defect Correction, and Temperature Readout.
These new advanced features and benefits make XCL-C Series cameras ideal for various applications such as
ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) and sports shooting, as well as traditional machine-vision applications.

KEY FEATURES
Shading Correction
Temperature Readout
With embedded shading correction, XCL-C Series cameras
minimize the uneven image intensity often caused by lighting
and/or the lens. Their internal hardware processing reduces
the need for external image correction that is normally
performed via a frame grabber board and PC. This handy
function reduces the processing load of the PC, and simplifies
the processing task. In addition, these cameras are equipped
with three optional lighting settings to capture clear images
in varying lighting conditions.
Each camera comes with an internal temperature sensor. The
host device can receive temperature information by issuing
a command. This eliminates the need for a separate sensor,
and simplifies system configuration.

Defect Correction
XCL-C Series cameras can automatically minimize defective
pixels (e.g., white and black dots) within the entire imaging
area directly inside the camera. This feature helps simplify
image processing.
The XCL-C Series*1 is equipped with a saturation signal control
function to allow the amount of saturation signal charge
on the CCD to be increased or decreased via software
commands. For example, when capturing dark objects, the
user can increase the amount of saturation signal charge
elevating the camera’s sensitivity to improve the picture
quality instead of using a long exposure time.*2 On the other
hand, by decreasing the amount of saturation signal charge,
the amount of smear can be reduced or improved.
*1 Excludes XCL-C130 and XCL-C130C.
*2 If the saturation signal charge amount exceeds the maximum that can
be transferred into the vertical and horizontal registers, a transfer error will
occur (e.g. smear).
Memory Channel
In addition to factory default settings, up to 16 camera
parameters – including brightness, gamma, shutter, gain, and
trigger mode – can be preset to suit each particular scene.

Bulk Trigger Mode & Sequential Trigger Mode
Look-up Table (LUT)
These new XCL-C Series cameras feature advanced Bulk
Trigger and Sequential Trigger modes in addition to a
conventional trigger mode. Each camera supports 16
memory channels that can store up to 16 different camera
setups (e.g., exposure, and gain).
Each XCL-C Series camera supports a look-up table which
transforms the input luminance signal into the required
digital output. It supports factory presets – Linear, Negative,
Binarization, and Linear Interpolation – as well as a Userdefined LUT (input: 12 bits, output: 12 bits).
Bulk Trigger mode allows these cameras to capture up to
16 images in rapid succession using a single software or
hardware trigger.
Trigger Noise Filtering
Sequential Trigger mode allows each camera to capture a
single image using successive setups stored in the memory
channels with each software or hardware trigger.

With a trigger line filter, these cameras can specify a valid
pulse width for the trigger. This helps avoid unexpected
image capture caused, for example, by triggers from
insignificant noise.
Pulse Train Generator
XCL-C Series cameras are capable of outputting any
rectangular wave from one of the general-purpose outputs.
This pulse train can be programmed for frequencies from
0.5 Hz up to 100 KHz in 1 µs steps to control external devices
such as LED lights, simplifying overall system configuration.

Near-infrared Sensitivity
Utilizing Sony’s EXview HAD CCD II technology enables the
XCL-C280 to capture clear images in NIR (near-infrared)
wavelengths. When used with an infrared strobe, the camera
produces outstanding picture quality especially in low light
and NIR inspection applications.
