PL‐E531MU (Aptina MT9M001 sensor)

The PL‐E531MU monochrome ultra small footprint camera based on an Aptina MT9M001 sensor, provides high resolution, low noise images for unparalleled value in a broad range of industrial applications.

The camera features a 1.3 megapixel (1280 x 1024) resolution imager capable of 30 fps at full resolution, and an Aptina CMOS progressive scan sensor with a 1/2” optical format.

The Pl-E531MU enclosed camera provides the user a choice of 8‐bit or 10‐bit digitization and a dynamic range of 60dB in 10‐bit mode.

Typical Applications

  • Biometrics
  • High performance security & surveillance applications
  • Parts inspection
  • Metrology
  • Document archiving
  • PCB inspection

The flexible Region of Interest (ROI) control allows users to operate at higher frame rates by placing a lower resolution “window” on the imager at any location with a granularity of 8 pixels by 8 pixels.

The sensor architecture provides superior anti‐blooming compared to the CCD sensors making the PL‐E531MU an excellent choice for imaging highly reflective objects or scenes with intense illumination.

PixeLINK’s industry leading SDK uses a common API for all cameras regardless of the chosen interface. Software code developed for one camera is easily transferred to other PixeLINK models without the need to recompile, overall system costs are reduced and camera integration is simplified.

Enclosed Camera : The small enclosed case design offers you a robust, high-quality industrial camera that can be easily incorporated into a variety of system configurations.
