Serial WDR Camera 2.0 Mp

The SOMCAM-2S Camera is a  serial camera which can be attached to any host system that requires a JPEG compressed still camera for embedded imaging applications. It provides color images down to an illumination of 0.0005 Lux. The camera uses a 1/2.7’’ CMOS color image sensor along with a JPEG compression chip that provides a low powered camera system. The camera has an on-board serial interface (TTL/RS232/RS485) that is ideal for direct connection to the Sommer Messtechnik MRL-data logger family.
