Ottawa, Canada Nov. 17, 2017 – Pixelink, a global provider of industrial cameras for the machine vision and microscopy markets, announced today the release of three new cameras that will position Pixelink as having the most complete line of Sony IMX based USB 3.0 machine vision cameras in the marketplace.

“Pixelink, A Navitar Company, has long prided ourselves in providing high quality cameras to a broad range of industries and for varying applications,” said Paul Saunders, President of Pixelink. “These new product solutions will address the demand in the marketplace from customers who are looking for the quality of our cameras, but who do not need the higher frame rates that Sony IMX image sensors are traditionally known for.”

The newly released cameras are all based on Sony Pregius global shutter CMOS technology and are available in color or monochrome versions. The Pixelink PL-D795 camera, based on the Sony IMX264 sensor, has 5 megapixel resolution, a 2/3” lens format and dynamic range of 70 dB.
