In June 2003, Tokyo Electronic Industry Co., Ltd. (hereafter called Teli) of which the president is Hiroshi Takaoka starts marketing our new product for machine vision use, CSB1100CL, CMOS B/W Camera (Total pixel: 1,310,000).
This model is the third iteration of the camera following to CSB4000CL and CSB4000F, which are employing CMOS image sensor (Total pixel: 4,190,000) and have been started marketing since 2002 based on the our strategy for CMOS Camera specialized to the image processing use. CSB1100CL achieves the miniaturization and the weight reduction of the body.
This camera employs the following features as main function.

  • Global Shutter: The exposure is performed on all pixels simultaneously.
  • WOI (Window Of Interest): Only arbitrary more than one area can be read out.
  • Multi Slope function: Wide-dynamic range is achieved.

Camera Link is employed to image processing unit and interface to frame grabber board.
As this camera is integrated type and have a small and lightweight body (44 x 29 x 52 mm, approx. 120g), it is suitable for the mount to industrial machine and image processing machine.

Tips and background of development

The image processing cameras employing high-pixel CCD make up the mainstream currently. On the other hand, trend for image processing cameras tend to be required high-pixelization, more speedup and more multifunctionalization. We have responded these needs with technologies of CCD camera such like multiple shutter function, partial scan function and full frame readout. However, due to the structure, CCD image sensor becomes difficult to respond to the needs of further speedup.
So we developed CMOS image sensor originally to meet the function which is required for image processing and equipped it with CSB4000CL and CSB4000F.

These two models have been well received thanks to the functions such like Global shutter and WOI (Window Of Interest). Global shutter as an electronic shutter mode becomes possible to expose simultaneously on all pixels at the same timing as well as CCD image sensor. Moreover, WOI can readout only user-defined area up to 16 windows. We also received user requests for smaller products having same functions in 1,000,000 pixels class as well as CCD. CSB1100CL mounts 2/3type CMOS image sensor (Total pixels: 1,310,000) and covers advanced function such like Global shutter and WOI. In addition, this new product achieves the miniaturization (44 x 29 x 52mm) and the weight reduction (Approx. 120g) of the body to the utmost limit.

Main application

  • For image processing (for manufacturing machine, detection machine, etc.)
  • ITS application for readout of the car number.
  • Readout of bar cords and two-dimensional cord.
  • For micro scope


  • Adoption of CMOS sensor (Total pixel: 1,310,000)

    In this camera, a square-grid-array is employed and CMOS image sensor (1280 x 1024 pixels) is integrated to achieve high resolution.
  • WOI (Widow Of Interest)

    Speedup of image processing can be achieved by readout the arbitrary more than one area designated by user. As unnecessary area is not needed to readout, it can be done. In reference to the various use for image processing, WOI can be designated the area up to 16.
  • Global shutter

    The exposure of all pixels at the same timing and easy capturing the stationary images are available.
  • Multi Slope function

    Wide-dynamic range can be achieved by compression the light and dark on CMOS sensor's own. You can set the original value and use them with external selection.
  • Camera Link Interface

    This camera adopts Camera Link Interface for connection of Frame grabber board.
  • C-mount

    This camera employs C-mount as a general standard for industrial camera. TFL2520 is also available as a recommendation lens taking full advantage of high resolution (1,310,000 pixels) to the four corners of the display.
  • Small and lightweight body suitable for mounting to the unit.

    This model is integrated type having small and lightweight body (44 x 29 x 52mm, approx. 120g).
