New Sony SenSWIR IMX990 sensor available
ATD Electronique as a major distributor of Sony image sensors announces that Sony has developed a cutting edge sensor technology combining visible wavelength and SWIR. This brand-new approach addresses and solves major obstacles that until now prevented the commercial breakthrough of the current available SWIR-sensor technology in industrial applications. This summer, ATD expects to receive first evaluation samples as well as an evaluation kit. The latter one can be borrowed temporarily by ATD customers for testing purposes. Read more ›
New software for efficient camera integration
Starting immediately, Baumer is offering neoAPI and the Camera Explorer – two new free-of-charge software packages for fast, easy, and efficient camera integration. The software is available for PC- and ARM-based systems under Windows 7, Windows 10, and Linux.
Baumer neoAPI offers efficient camera integration in Python, C++, and C#. The new powerful and user-friendly GenICam camera application programming interface (API) allows quick familiarization thanks to its modern design. This allows Baumer cameras to be integrated into various applications with just a few lines of code – even by software developers with limited experience in the area of image processing. Read more ›
Expands its family of SWIR line scan cameras
Teledyne DALSA announces a 512 short-wave infrared (SWIR) line scan camera for machine vision. The latest Linea SWIR model features a cutting-edge InGaAs sensor in a compact format suitable for a variety of applications including food and packaged good inspection, recycling, mineral sorting and solar and silicon wafer inspection.

3D for 2D vision engineers
The job of conducting industrial inspection tasks, such as taking highly accurate height measurements of an object, measuring protrusion of embossed patterns, is usually given to expensive and time-consuming 3D systems. But Euresys has a cheaper and more flexible solution which is available right now. Yuzairee Tahir, VP sales and support APAC from Euresys, takes a look at how 2D vision engineers can have 3D at their fingertips.
The machine vision fraternity knows that it is a complex and computer intensive job to use a 3D point cloud to solve industrial inspection tasks. Read more ›
