Hitachi’s KP-FD140F and KP-FD32F cameras, available from Intelligent Vision , are high resolution single colour CCD progressive scan cameras with IEEEE 1394.b.

The KP-FD140F and KP-FD32F cameras are designed for use in microscopy, machine vision, medical and industrial applications.

The advanced Firewire B interface allows direct high speed data transfer between the camera and the PC using a small 8 conductor cable.

The 800Mbps transfer speed of the IEEE-1394.b interface permits higher frame rates for high resolution cameras. Multiple cameras can be used simultaneously through the use of a daisy chain connection.
