The XC-555 is an ultra-compact, integrated 1/2 type IT CCD color camera ideally suited for a wide variety of applications such as machine vision, multimedia and remote monitoring. The XC-555 is designed so that a video output signal can be obtained by only providing a power supply of 12 V DC. Its ultra-compact, one-piece design eliminates the need for a bulky CCU, allowing the XC-555 camera to be easily installed in space-restricted areas. The XC-555 is a direct replacement for the XC-999 and XC-777A cameras (1/2 vs. 1/3 inch optics).
