e-CAM1M_CU10630_MOD is particularly suited to the following applications:

This camera module with 2.7” optical format image sensor is ideally suited for high-end surveillance, automobile lane departure warning applications, IP Cameras, HD CCTV applications, etc. With the Wide Dynamic Range of 100dB and 4.2micron pixel size, this camera module is ideally suited for any environment including low ambient light scenes or high-contrast lighting conditions.

An image of an office roof-lamp fitted with the grid captured using our e-CAM1M_CU10630 camera module is shown below. In such challenging high-contrast environments, the grid pattern or the text written, those are difficult to capture, have been captured pretty well with our camera modules.
