High Resolution 29 Megapixel USB 3.1 Gen 1 CCD Camera with NIR Enhancement

The Lumenera Lt29059H is a 29 megapixel, USB 3.1 Gen 1 camera that is built for rugged 24/7 use. With its 35 mm format KAI-29052 CCD sensor, fully global electronic shutter, and NIR enhancement, the Lt29059H captures high resolution images with zero blur. The KAI-29052 sensor provides increased NIR sensitivity and increased sensitivity in the 620nm and 540nm wavelength. It also provides high smear rejection (-100 dB) and up to 64 dB linear dynamic range. The Lt29059H is ideally suited for challenging imaging applications such as intelligent traffic systems, high-resolution industrial inspection, and aerial imaging.

Lumenera Lt29059H Camera Product Highlights

  • Canon EF lens mount with fully integrated controller for auto focus/iris supported by Lumenera's API, increases accuracy and flexibility for remote applications
  • High quality ON Semiconductor Truesense KAI-29052 CCD sensor provides excellent dynamic range and color reproduction
  • Compact form factor for easy integration, without losing the image quality typical in larger sized cameras
  • Fanless body, small footprint and lower power requirements
  • Locking industrial USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface
  • Locking GPIO connector supporting 1 output, 1 input optically isolated and 2 software configurable I/O ports and power, allowing external control of peripherals and synchronization of lighting
  • 256 MB RAM frame buffer
  • Simplified cabling - video, and full camera control over a single USB cable
  • Binning improves sensitivity and Region of Interest (ROI) provides higher frame rates


The high quality CCD sensor provides both monochrome and vivid color images for the most demanding environments. Full streaming uncompressed video and still image captures are easily controlled through a set of stable and reliable USB 3.1 Gen 1 device drivers. Region of interest and binning modes enable the camera to run at faster frame rates by selecting a specific portion of an image and only transmitting that data. Image capture synchronization is achievable using either a hardware or software trigger and is complemented by 256 MB of on board memory for frame buffering to ensure image delivery.


The compact, light-weight enclosure of the Lt29059H is designed to effectively dissipate heat and increase reliability by avoiding the need for a fan. The fully locking USB 3.1 Gen 1 cabling, power connector, and digital interface ensure simple installation without a need for framegrabbers. Simplified I/O cabling is provided through a 12 pin GPIO connector supporting 1 output, 1 input, and 2 software configurable I/O ports.
