New 3-CMOS prism based color line scan camera with 10 GigE Vision interface
JAI introduces a new industrial color line scan camera in the Sweep+ Series. The Sweep+ SW-4000T-10GE is a prism-based color line scan camera equipped with 3 CMOS sensors (each with 4096 pixels) and a super-fast 10GBASE-T GigE Vision Interface including backwards compatibility to N-BASE-T and 1000BASE-T GigE Vision interfaces.
The combination of 3-CMOS prism color line scan technology with a 10GBASE-T (10Gbit/s) interface, not only makes this camera the world’s first product of its kind, but also the world’s fastest prism-based RGB color line scan camera. Read more ›
One-for-all Machine Vision Lens Series for 1.1”-Sensors and 2.5 µm Pixels
The technical advancement of image sensors for Machine Vision brings higher spatial resolution resulting in larger sensors and smaller pixels. This development created big challenges for vision system designers as it was difficult to find the right lenses for such sensors: High resolution power, strong light transmission, distortion-less imaging, short minimum object distance (MOD), a small Chief Ray Angle (CRA), and all this from the center to the edges of the large image circle – these were just the optical requirements. Equally important remain the compact build of the lenses and their robustness against shocks and vibrations. Read more ›
Sony extends IMX253 CMOS Sensor with Polarsens™ Technology
After having revolutionized vision-based inspection with award-winning global shutter IMX250 image sensor with Polarsens™ technology, Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation has recently launched a new on-chip polarizer, the higher resolution IMX253MZR/MYR CMOS Global Shutter sensor.
The 1.1” type format sensor brings a 12.37 Megapixels resolution with a 3.45 µm pixel size and four-directional polarizer directly applied to the photodiode of the image sensor chip. The IMX253 with Polarsens™ technology reaches frame rates of 64fps at 10 bits. Available from global vision partner FRAMOS, this polarization sensor targets various industrial applications where visibility and sensing are difficult.

New generation of Machine Vision Lighting Controllers
Gardasoft Vision has announced the launch of the FP220 series of high speed lighting controllers for machine vision. This new generation of dual channel controllers uniquely combines capabilities for high frequency, high power LED pulsing with outstanding low output current performance, making them suitable for a huge range of machine vision applications.
Designed for use with any LED lighting rated up to 3A, the FP200 series provides reproducible current control to deliver continuous or pulsed light output. It utilses enhanced technology for faster pulse rise times, with trigger frequencies up to 10kHZ for high speed pulsing applications such as line scan imaging. Read more ›
New Gocator® 3D Smart Sensor for scanning glass and other specular surfaces
LMI Technologies is pleased to announce the launch of the Gocator® 2512 laser line profile sensor, a dedicated high-performance 3D machine vision solution for scanning glass and other specular surfaces.
Gocator® 2512 has the unique advantage of being able to scan specular and diffuse surfaces simultaneously. For example, the sensor can generate a precision 3D scan of a cell phone’s cover glass in a surrounding metal or plastic frame, inspecting critical assembly tolerances such as flushness, gap and offset.
The sensor leverages specialized laser projection technology that can handle a wider range of surface angles, material types, and surface colors. Competing laser profilers use a collimated laser beam that does not offer the same target angle performance. Read more ›

New Machine Vision Microscope
The new “Machine Vision Microscope” (MVM) is a purely digital microscope with all the features that make a microscope.
It has an apochromatically highly corrected microscope objective and a corresponding tube lens which magnifies each object point to a pixel of the 5MP Sony IMX264 sensor.
In addition, a coaxial incident light illumination as well as a diffuse ring light were installed.
The module offers an unprecedented level of usability. They come with their own image acquisition software, so they can be easily integrated into any network, system or production environment. Read more ›
New high resolution EXO cameras with up to 31 megapixel
High resolutions up to 31 megapixel and best image quality with a small footprint are the keypoints of the new EXO series cameras. Being available as tracer versions as well, they even permit to drive variable lenses.
SVS-Vistek adds to its extensive industrial camera range of high-resolution USB3 cameras with small-form factor: In the first quarter of 2019, the company will be introducing ten new USB3 models of the EXO camera series (exo342, exo387, exo367) with their resolutions of 31, 19 and 17 megapixels that are all based on the newest generation of Sony’s Pregius 2 CMOS sensors. These new sensors with large, square pixels of 3.45 x 3.45 µm edge length are very light sensitive and offer an extremely high dynamic range. Read more ›
New 3D laser profiler series excels at in-line measurement and inspection tasks
Teledyne DALSA has added to its successful 1D and 2D camera portfolio by introducing its new, high-accuracy 3D laser profiler series for industrial imaging and factory automation.
