CMOS/CCD Sensors by Sony

Sony provides CMOS image sensors, which are available in color as well as in monochrome versions.

The well known CCD sensors of the ICX and ILX series were unfortunately discontinued in August 2015.





EURECA Messtechnik GmbH is no official distributor or representative of Sony. We purchase the sensors worldwide at the lowest price and so we are able to sell at the best price we can obtain. The linear sensors by Sony are normally available from stock also in small numbers.

For many sensors by Sony we offer also accessories or services. For example we remove the cover glass of sensors and supply suitable peltier elements for cooling purposes.

We can remove the glass covers from most of the sensors out of the Pregius and Starvis series in order to avoid disturbing reflexions. Also the modification of cameras, which use internally these sensors, is possible. With success we have already handled the IMX174, IMX178, IMX249, IMX250, IMX252, IMX 264 and IMX265. You can find further information about this service at: Glass cover removal from CCD/CMOS image sensors.


Obsolete CCD sensors

SONY offered many CCD area sensors for different applications, which were unfortunately discontinued in August 2015. The following tables show the sensor types from which we have still remaining stocks. Please contact us if you have interest in one special type in order to find out the exact ramaining numbers.

You can find closer information about the UV types at our page about UV coating.

For some of the listed sensors on this page we can supply also an USB camera board.

Tested refurbs ILX511

We still receive many requests for the obsolete type ILX511. This sensor provided an excellent signal quality and was so suitable for even high-performance applications. Due to this fact we have decided to offer a special service:

There are still many resoldered ILX511 sensors available (e.g. parts from manufactured pcbs, which were then never used). EURECA now offers such sensors for sale. Each sensor is tested seperately for its correct electro-optical function, so that only sensors are sold which are full working. If you have interest in such sensors, please contact us and ask for "ILX511-TR" (TR = tested refurb).

Colour Linear Sensors

A colour sensor provides three or six complete monochrome CCD lines in one housing, which are arranged parallel to each other in a short distance. Each line is covered with a dichroitic filter for one of the three basic colours red, green and blue.

Table contents updated: 2015-02-21

Attention: Sony will discontinue the sensors indicated in the table above by end of August 2015! Please do not use them for new developments. For closer information about this topic please contact us.

The data rate indicates, with which rate the analogue sensor signal can be read out.

The sensitivity of a CCD sensor indicates, which output in volts is produced by a pixel after an exposure duration of one second with a light density of one lux. Apart from the pixel area, this value also depends on the internal amplification of the output drivers.

The dynamic value contains a reference to the resolution that can be expected after a conversion of the output signal with an analogue/digital converter.

The line length indicates the length of the photo-sensitive CCD lines of the sensor (number of pixels × pixel length), not the mechanical length of the sensor housing.

The linear sensors can also be delivered without glass cover. This is e.g. necessary, when filters or fiber optics are to be put onto the sensor.
