ACHROMATIC LENSES The TECHSPEC Near UV achromatic lenses provide transmission in the 345 to 700 nanometer (nm) range. They are designed to minimize the spot size for polychromatic illumination in the 345 to 550 nm region, and work with fl uorescence applications. The lenses provide greater than 90% transmission from 360 to 700 nm and supply greater than 50% transmission at 334 nm with no spherical aberration or coma. They are available in 12.5 millimeter diameter models in 25-, 30-, 40-, 50- and 60-millimeter effective focal length (EFL) and in 25 millimeter diameter models in 50-, 60-, 75-, 100- and 125-millimeter EFL. All models include a UV-VIS coating.

With multiple input and output ports, these devices can eliminate the need for PLC controllers by combining sensor information with machine vision applications. With eight inputs and eight outputs, the GigE Trigger device provides many connections for integrating light barriers, encoders, sensors and actuators, and eliminates the need for a digital I/O card located in a PC.

The readers can be fi eldupgraded to add 2-D Data Matrix and QR code reading capability if application needs change. The DataMan QL Series features Cognex 1DMax, a 1-D code reading algorithm. In addition to reading blurred or damaged codes, 1DMax handles quiet zone violations that can occur when codes are printed close to the edge of a label. Cognex Corp.

Available in six sizes with outer diameters of 85, 124, 154, 223, 273 and 353 millimeters, IHR models are available with red, white, blue or green LEDs. Additional wavelengths or sizes may be custom ordered. All IHR models are equipped with a diffusion optic for uniform illumination. Optional polarizing optics are available for applications requiring the suppression of glare from specular surfaces.

The XH8800 is used to image large, dense objects such as metal castings and steel objects whose thickness can range from four to 12 inches. It is available in seven active sensor lengths ranging from 154 to 1,542 millimeters including a broad mix of resolutions ranging from 96 to 30,720 pixels on centers as small as 50 microns. Other detector lengths can be special ordered with virtually no maximum length limit. X-Scan Imaging Corp. (408) 432-9888 www.x-scanimaging.com Reply 646 MULTI-SPECTRAL CAMERA The AD-080GE, with GigE Vision interface, is a 2-charge-coupled device (CCD) camera capable of simultaneously imaging visible and near-infrared (NIR) light spectrums through a single lens. The AD-080GE incorporates two 1/3 inch progressive scan sensors (1024 by 768 pixels) mounted to a custom-designed optical prism. The camera runs at a frame rate of 30 frames per second in continuous operation. Other applications include the inspection of blister packs or other plastic fi lm containers, where the visible channel allows inspection of the print on the surface and the NIR channel allows inspection of the contents. Each channel has separate gain and exposure control to be able to optimize the signal-to-noise ratio at all times. The camera is equipped with two GigE outputs enabling a choice between single-cable operation or separate cables for each channel. JAI Inc.

The package supports both FireWire (IEEE1394a/b) and Gigabit Ethernet (GigE Vision) interfaces. The software relies on components of the FirePackage and the Prosilica PvAPI SDK for FireWire and GigE cameras, respectively. It supports Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32-Bit versions and is available for camera users as a free download. Allied Vision Technologies (978) 225-2030 www.alliedvisiontec.com Reply 648
