PixeLINK Launches New Machine Vision Digital Camera

OTTAWA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sept. 11, 2003–PixeLINK (www.pixelink.com) today announced the launch of their latest digital camera aimed at the machine vision market. The new PL-A741 camera is a high-performance monochrome digital camera with global shutter and external trigger designed for stop-motion frame-on-demand applications. The PL-A741 does not require a frame grabber and communicates with a host computer over a FireWire (IEEE-1394) interface.

With no frame grabber to integrate, MV system integrators will find that their overall system complexity is reduced, as is their time to market.
