February 26, 2021 – LUCID Vision Labs, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of unique and innovative industrial vision cameras, today announced that its new 5.0 MP Phoenix™ and Triton™ polarization cameras featuring Sony’s latest Polarsens™ IMX264MZR/MYR CMOS sensors have entered series production.
Sony’s next generation of polarization sensors offer high quality polarized imaging at a significantly lower price point. LUCID’s latest Triton and Phoenix 5.0 MP polarized cameras feature the new IMX264MYR (color) and IMX264MZR (mono) polarized CMOS sensors. They use four different directional on-chip polarizing filters (0°, 90°, 45°, and 135°) on every 2 by 2 array of pixels, allowing highly accurate alignment with the pixel array. Furthermore, Polarsens technology has a global shutter read-out, high frame rates, ROI control and trigger modes to further improve the image capture performance.
“Polarization offers powerful inspection techniques whether it’s detecting hidden scratches in transparent materials, inspecting reflective objects, or even analyzing 3D depth data without the need for a traditional 3D camera,” says Rod Barman, Founder and President at LUCID Vision Labs. “The new 5.0 MP Phoenix and Triton polarization cameras now provide an even more cost-effective way to enhance inspection and classification capabilities in industrial applications.”
All LUCID cameras conform to the GigE Vision 2.0 and GenICam3 standards and are supported by LUCID’s own Arena software development kit. The Arena SDK provides customers with easy access to the latest industry standards and software technologies. In addition, our software offers enhanced polarization functionality such as on-camera polarization processing and software visualization tools to accelerate the development for polarized imaging applications. The SDK supports Windows, Linux 64bit and Linux ARM operating systems, and C, C++, C# and Python programming languages.
The new polarization cameras Phoenix (PHX050S1-P/Q, list price: USD $1,100) and Triton (TRI050S1-P/Q, list price: USD $1,250) are now in series production and available for order. For more information, please visit our Polarization product pages or contact Sales.
