The eyes of any machine vision solution

Mitsubishi Electric Line Scan Bar - Contact Image Sensors (CIS)

  • Cost-effective and easy to use solution for compact optical colour inspection with highest scan rates
  • Perfect solution for applications in all areas where flat or nearly flat objects and materials are to be tested quickly and with high resolution and best colour quality (e.g. printed matter, PCBs, LCD panels)
  • Integrated controllable white LED illumination, sensor unit without illumination available
  • Non-contact full colour or monochrome scan, working distance 12 mm from glass surface
  • Resolution 600 dpi
  • Line rate of 55 kHz allows colour scans at rates of more than 2000 mm/s

The perfect combination of fast data rates and low effort

The Mitsubishi Electric Line Scan Bar series is based on Contact Image Sensors and offers the perfect solution for the inspection of flat or nearly flat surfaces and objects. Using a proprietary tri-line CMOS colour sensor and integrated white LED illumination, web-like materials can be scanned in colour at a resolution of 600 dpi.

Mitsubishi Electric's decades of experience in CIS technology and market leadership for banknote inspection and document processing guarantees exceptional colour fidelity and reliability. The Contact Image Sensors (CIS) are available in three different scanner sizes (A3, A1, A0) equipped with CameraLink or CoaxPress interfaces.

The Mitsubishi Electric Line Scan Bars combine high data rates with excellent sensitivity, excellent colour rendition and maximum resolution without any additional effort in set-up, camera alignment or calibration. The images generated by a Contact Imaging Sensor show virtually no distortion since the long sensor line maps the object on a one-to-one scale.

The image quality of the CIS sensors is largely influenced by the mounting accuracy of the individual sensor chips on the PCB and the alignment of the rod-lens array. Only a highly integrated and automated production line offers the required precision during manufacturing. Mitsubishi Electric has all required production facilities and quality control installations to provide this accuracy and reproducibility. Each sensor is fully tested before shipment.

Built-in timing control includes encoder inputs and light control and is configured by RS232 via CameraLink.


3 reasons for Mitsubishi Electric Line Scan Bar

You want an easy to integrate line scan system

The Mitsubishi Electric Line Scan Bar series of Contact Image Sensors combine camera, optics and illumination in a single device.

Your benefits:

  • You can set up the system quickly and easily and save yourself the effort of aligning all components individually which allows you faster commissioning of your system
  • This reduces the risk of defective components and repair-related downtimes, which increases the operating time of your system.

You want a reliable system that remains precisely aligned even in the harshest environments

The Mitsubishi Electric Contact Image Sensors include firmly built-in camera, illumination and optics all in a single device.

Your benefit:

  • Even in the harshest manufacturing environments with shocks and vibrations you can rely on a consistently stable alignment of all machine vision components.

You have only minimum space available for your machine vision system

The principle of Contact Image Sensors is based on a very compact design with low working distances. The overall system is much smaller than conventional line scan camera systems.

Your benefits:

  • The system requires minimum space which allows hassle-free integration into existing facilities.
