Global Shutter for Accurate Image Capture
For industrial applications that involve shooting subjects moving at high speeds, the slight difference in sensor readout time can result in subjects becoming distorted. This occurs when a CMOS sensor that employs a rolling shutter is used, as it exposes pixels row by row. The UA-A0500M/C/CIR-60 AREA U3 CAMERA and CX-A0500M/C/CIR-105 AREA CXP CAMERA allows for accurate image capture of subjects moving at high speeds.

Specialized RGB-NIR Pixel Filter Array
By replacing one of the green filters on a standard colour CMOS sensor with a Near Infra-Red (NIR) filter, image processing from this sensor allows for the separation of visible and NIR spectrums. Near-infrared images can be used to detect internal foreignobject, and highlight printing errors on the surface of packages.
