Mightex’s TCN/TCE-1304-U series are cost-effective, high-performance, B/W line CCD cameras with external trigger, based on a single-line, 3648-pixel CCD chip with USB2.0 (480 Mbit/s) interface. These compact line-scan cameras are ideal for a variety of OEM applications such as industry process control, optical spectroscopy and bio-medical imaging etc. – available as “naked” board-level device (TCN-1304-U) or pre-mounted in an enclosure (TCE-1304-U).
TCN/TCE-1304-UW are the windowless versions of TCN/TCE-1304-U, with the glass window removed from the image sensor. Therefore, these versions are more sensitive to UV and more suitable for applications that involve coherent .
CCD line cameras have several advantages over their area-array counterparts, including high optical linear resolution that allows systems developers to use the cameras to capture two-dimensional (2-D) images by moving the object or the CCD perpendicularly to the scan line.
Setting up the TCN/TCE-1304-U line cameras is very easy: the user simply installs the camera’s application software into any PC, and then connects the line camera to the PC using a USB cable. There is no need to install a DAC card or to use an external power supply.
A user-friendly GUI based application software, LabVIEW support and an SDK are provided. In addition, a USB command set protocol and a Linux driver are available for non-Windows based applications
Note: Board-level cameras are designed for OEM applications, when a system-level enclosure is usually provided. In order to avoid electro-static discharge (ESD) related damages, workforce handling a board-level camera should be properly grounded. ESD related damages are considered as mishandling and are not covered by product warranty. For lab use, it is strongly recommended to choose an enclosed camera instead of a board-level one.
