VISION LENSES The line of Techspec imaging and machine vision lenses has been expanded, with more than 30 lenses including Techspec fi xed focal length and telecentric lenses. The expanded offering includes four different product lines: Techspec compact fi xed focal length lenses, Techspec compact telecentrics, Techspec large format telecentrics and Techspec high resolution telecentrics. The company also offers custom solutions for customers with unique application needs. The lenses support imaging sensors as large as 2/3-inch and are available in focal lengths of 8.5-, 12-, 16-, 25- and 35 millimeters. A broadband anti refl ective coating offers improved light transmission, making these lenses suitable for most restrictive lighting conditions.

At 88 millimeters by 26 millimeters by 54 millimeters, the compact PRT-based sensors have a visible red laser light source with a small, well-defi ned light spot for quick, accurate alignment. These sensors offer a one-touch teach process, are immune to cross-talk and provide reliable operation in temperatures ranging from -22 F to 122 F.

The camera’s CS-mount lens holder incorporates a removable glass (monochrome cameras) or IR cut fi lter (color cameras) that protects the image sensor against dust and ensures image quality. A board-level option, which measures 40 by 25 millimeters, is available. In addition, the IEEE 1394a (FireWire) versions of the company’s Firefl y MV digital camera family now come housed in a lightweight and durable plastic case. Designed for Firefl y MV FFMV-03M2 camera models, the compact 44 by 24 by 34 millimeter enclosure protects the camera’s printed circuit board from physical damage, minimizing system downtime due to repairs or replacements.

The Falcon VGA300 HG, 1M120 HG and 1.4M100 HG provide complementary metaloxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors and can be used for electronics inspection, semiconductor inspection, industrial metrology (gaging) and other machine vision applications. The 1M120 HG offers 1 megapixel resolution with 120 frames per second (fps), while the 1. 4M100 HG delivers 1.4 megapixel resolution with 100 fps. In addition to the HG models optimized for high sensitivity, the Falcon 1.4M100 XDR 1.4 megapixel camera delivers 100 fps and is optimized for high dynamic range. These cameras have CMOS technology for lower power consumption and support Power over Camera Link (PoCL), which removes the need for a separate power cable and reduces system cost and cabling complexity.

The Nanosmart-PoE is equipped with the single board camera VCSBC4012 nano by Vision Components. All interfaces to the outside world are provided using just a RJ45 and a RJ48 plug. The RJ45 Power over Ethernet (active PoE) plug provides the 100 megabit data interface as well as power supply. The RJ48 plug makes available eight digital 24 V inputs or outputs and a 24 V DC power supply. Highspeed inputs and outputs are used for precise camera and fl ash light synchronization. The delay between fl ash trigger and exposure start is programmable as well as the fl ashing time. Thus, well-defi ned short exposure times are available—even with the rolling shutter of the complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS)-camera with 5 megapixels. Six LEDs are available to display operational states.

The sensor on the Matrox Iris GT1900 is a 1600 by 1200 at 15 frames per second (fps) 1/1.8-inch monochrome charge-coupled device (CCD). Powered by an Intel 1.6 gigahertz Atom processor, Matrox Iris GT runs Windows CE 6.0, and features an integrated graphics controller with video graphics array (VGA) output, 256 megabyte DDR2 memory, and 1 gigabyte of fl ash disk. Like other sensor confi gurations, the Iris GT1900 is housed in a sturdy, dust-proof and washable IP67-rated casing. Matrox Iris GT is available either with the Matrox Design Assistant interactive development environment (bundled with each unit) or the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) , which is sold separately.

The new 3-by-1.4- megapixel and 3-by-2-megapixel cameras provide a larger sensor format and higher resolution than the previously available 3CCD RGB models. The AT-140CL has three 1/2-inch progressive scan CCDs (Sony ICX267AL), each with a resolution of 1,392 by 1,040 pixels and an individual pixel size of 4.65 by 4.65 microns. The AT-200CL uses three 1/1.8-inch progressive scan CCDs (Sony ICX274AL) to provide a resolution of 1,628 by 1,236 pixels with an individual pixel size of 4.4 microns square. The CCDs are affi xed to a newly developed prism block that splits the incoming light into red, green and blue color channels. The alignment process ensures the three sensors are aligned to within 1/4-pixel accuracy, providing pixel-precise color values suitable for machine vision analysis, measurement and processing.

Following the release of the Distagon T* 3,5/18 ZE, the new Distagon T* 2,8/21 ZE is the second wide-angle lens with EF bayonet from the company and the fourth lens in the ZE product range. Its ability to correct color errors prevents color fringing and unwanted lack of focus that can result from chromatic aberrations. Thus, it is ideal for contrastrich scenes and intense lighting angles. The lens’s fl oating elements design also guarantees high imaging performance, and it is not affected by refl ections or stray light. Carl Zeiss MicroImaging Inc.

With 200 megabytes per second sustained data transfer rates, and burst transfers up to 250 megabytes per second, almost all base Camera Link cameras are supported. The PIXCI ECB1-34 captures from line scan or area scan cameras operating in either free-run or controlled mode. Controlled mode can use an optional TTL trigger input cable. The ECB1-34 generates a programmed width exposure signal to the camera for each trigger input. An optional TTL strobe output cable is available. Epix Inc. (847) 465-1818 www.epixinc.com Reply 649
