Near infrared sensitivity

Extended spectral response allows use of the camera in the near infrared region.

Applicable models: KP-F145WCL, KP-F145GV Applicable models

Raw Data Output (KP-FRxxx Models)

The FR series of cameras use a CCD with an RGB primary color mosaic filter, outputting the image data in a RAW format with minimal processing in order to achieve higher frame rates as compared to a normal color camera. External image processing and software is required to produce a proper color picture.

High color fidelity (KP-FDxxx/KP-FMDxxx Models)

RGB primary color mosaic filter achieve high color fidelity.

High resolution & high speed

High resolution combined with high frame rates is possible with this series of cameras. Can be used for high-precision and high-speed image processing in many applications.

Features for 3CCD Models

Adjustable sharpness (DTL) width

Sharpness (DTL) width is adjustable. A feeling of natural definition is provided when set a lower sharpness. A higher setting results in an image with enhanced conturs.

Auto shading (ASC)

Color shading (non-uniformity of color distribution) due to lens and lighting can be corrected automatically.

Versatile imaging functions

  • Long time integration mode.
  • Four application files.
    Four different complete camerasetups can be stored and recalled.
  • Realtime automatic white balance function (ATW)
    Changements in the colortemperature of the of the illumination can be adjusted automatically.
  • Auto exposure (ALC: auto level control)
    The ALC examines and uses 64 separate areas of the image to continuously control the AGC and AES, providing extremely wide response to variations in light. Peak or Average ALC response can be selected from the camera menu.
  • Two mode gain control
    AGC or user-programmable gain in 1 dB steps.
  • Master black, R/B black, and R/B gain are adjustable.
