VGA CAMERA Based on the Sony ICX618 CCD sensor, the new TXG02 from Baumer is one of the fastest industrial digital cameras with VGA resolution on the market. The combination of a high frame rate of up to 140 fps and improved image quality qualifies this new GigE camera model to master sophisticated image-processing tasks. Thanks to its integrated ExView HAD technology, the camera is exceptionally sensitive in the visible and near-infrared range of the spectrum.

The new high-speed system is available in both 36-bit color, and the more light-sensitive 12-bit monochrome. The Fastcam SA6 provides up to 1,500 frames per second (fps) at high definition resolution (1,920 pixels wide x 1,080 high) from the 1,920 x 1,440 native resolution CMOS sensor. Photron provides both C and F lens mounts with the new, large format camera.

Measuring just 14 mm and 17 mm in height, the compact, non-contact inductive sensors deliver dependable, repeatable measurements in applications with spacing limitations and harsh environments. TURCK’s linear inductive sensor operation is based on the RLC resistance inductance capacitance principle. Unlike potentiometric or magnetostrictive technologies, the sensors incorporate precisely manufactured printed emitter and receiver coil systems. The emitter coils are activated with a high frequency AC field and produce an inductive RLC circuit with the positioning element. The element is inductively coupled with the receiver coils, which are arranged so different voltages are induced in the coils, depending on the position of the actuator. The voltages serve as a measure for the sensor signal.

This camera delivers the performance and cost benefits of the CoaXPress standard and combines global shutter CMOS technology with the proprietary Adimec True Accurate Imaging® approach. This results in CCD-like image quality and speed. The Q4A180/CXP transmits 180 frames per second (FPS) at a 2048 x 2048 resolution with 10 bits per pixel over two standard coaxial cables with lengths over 60 meters without repeaters.

This newly released system now boasts an unprecedented 0. 5 nanometer Z-axis resolution with a magnification range spanning 200x–24,000x. The usability and ease-of-use have been further improved with the addition of the AI-Scan function, allowing users to image and measure a target with just a click of the mouse.

The time synchronic real time image recording takes place with up to 32 Hz with 640 x 480 pixels. The free available full version of the optris PI Connect software offers two modes for the image display: the monitoring modus and the cross-fading modus.

Vcam is a series of libraries created using Voyant, Lecky Integration’s own unique library of machine vision software. The company’s founder, Ned Lecky, PhD, faced years of frustration when developing vision programs that worked seamlessly in a variety of environments (C, C++, Windows or Linux), and on a variety of web, GigE, USB, and IP cameras. Using Vcam, a developer simply has to name the camera they want to use, setup desired camera parameters, and call start. The functions used are exactly the same for an industrial camera as they are for a $10 web cam. Lecky Integration (315) 505-4710 www.voyantvision.com www.lecky.com
