FRAMOS has announced that its North American subsidiary, FRAMOS Technologies, has expanded its partnership with Sony to include the company’s FCB, XC, XCD, and CVY industrial camera lines.

The camera technology being added into the portfolio is based on Sony’s image sensors, including Sony’s FCB-MA130, a compact (16.5 x 18 x 10.3 mm ) zoom color camera model for OEMs that features a 13 MPixel CMOS image sensor a USB 3.0 interface, one-push autofocus, embedded image Stabilization, and face detection functions.

"For FRAMOS Technologies, this important extension strengthens the portfolio for our customers and further aligns with our 30 year SONY partnership," said Sebastian Dignard, President of FRAMOS Technologies Inc. "It will enable us to solidify our leadership as holistic imaging specialists that offer vision solutions from Sensors to Systems in North America"
