Polarization camera with GigE interface
The new Mako G-508B POL polarizer camera is equipped with a Sony Polarsens™ 5.0 MP IMX250MZR CMOS sensor that incorporates the latest four-directional polarization filter technology. The on-chip nanowire polarizing layer supports four orientations (0°, 45°, 90°, and 135°). Four pixels together build a calculation unit to determine for each pixel the intensity and angle of polarization, similar to the debayering of an RGB or color sensor. By using pseudo-color look-up tables for each angle of polarization defects and areas of stress can be easily visualized. By default monochrome models ship with no optical filter.

When selecting a machine vision camera, the availability of the camera in the long term is an important selection criterion. Our online camera selector provides information on the availability of each camera model to help you choose the right camera for your needs. There are 4 categories related to the life cycle of each camera:
|Camera models that will be released shortly but are not available in series production yet.|
|State-of-the art cameras that are available and recommended for new design-ins. For these cameras, you can rely on long-term availability and support.|
Not for new designs
|Legacy camera models. They are still fully available to secure long-term supply to existing customers. However, if you plan a completely new design, we recommend that you look for a more recent alternative in the “Available” category.|
|A last-time-buy notification has already been distributed for these cameras. If you have been using them in your system for a long time, please place your orders before the last-time-buy deadline. See all discontinuations in the Product Change Notification section.|

- Quantum efficiency
Imaging performance data is based on the evaluation methods in the EMVA 1288 Release 3.1 standard for characterization of image sensors and cameras. Measurements are typical values for monochrome models measured at full resolution without optical filter and unpolarized light. Contact Sales or AE for more information.
Image optimization features:
- Auto gain (manual gain control: 0 to 40 dB; 0.1 dB increments)
- Auto exposure (exposure time control varies by pixel format)
- Gamma correction
