|Supports High-Speed and High-Accuracy Banknote Recognition Applications for Chinese Market |
TOKYO - Friday, July 26th 2013 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE) Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) announced today that the launch of "CIPS183BS210", a Contact Image-Sensor Module with a faster data rate, for application in banknote recognition systems. Mass production is scheduled to start in October 2013.
"CIPS183BS210" incorporates a newly developed linear image sensor and offers a 16MHz data rate, twice that of its predecessor, the CIPS183BS200. It realizes the same rate of banknote recognition in high resolution mode (200dpi) as the current product does in high speed mode (100dpi). This improvement realizes the high-accuracy and high-speed banknote recognition required for application in the Chinese market.
The new module is 14mm wide against 18mm for the current generation of product, and also offers improved luminous intensity distribution.
Customized module cases will be considered as an option, at the request of customers.
Applications Banknote recognition systems, such as counting and sorting machines, automated teller machines (ATM), etc
Key features 1. Integration of newly developed high-speed, high-sensitivity linear sensor enables:
High speed data rate of 16MHz
RGB sensitivity is improved by approximately 70% (Comparison with CIPS183BS200)
Infrared sensitivity is improved by approximately 25% (Comparison with CIPS183BS200)
Stable output signals, securing operation margin and simplifying system design
2. Module width is reduced to 14mm.
Effective Scanning Length
200dpi / 100dpi (selectable)
41µs x 4 /line (at 200dpi) 23µs x 4 /line (at 100dpi)
200(L) x 14(W) x 12.4(H) mm
