High-speed image processing with 8 GB internal image memory
The Baumer QX series 10 GigE cameras feature 8 GB internal image memory and extended functionalities. Process monitoring applications benefit from inspection times increased by a factor of 4 as well as flexible usage of the memory. The new function package is available by a firmware update starting the 1st quarter of 2019.
With the expansion of the internal image memory from 2 to 8 GB, more images can be stored, which significantly increases the recording time: 2 s at a frame rate of 335 fps with 12 MP resolution. Flexible memory management, for example 2 MP resolution in a ROI (Region of Interest) nearly provides more than 4 s recording time at a rate of 1000 fps. Two further image buffer modes added to Burst Mode enable even more memory flexibility. Read more ›

CMOS Sensors are Now a Great Replacement for High-Resolution CCDs
CMOS image sensor technology has turned into the new normal. Well, not entirely… For high-end resolutions above 30 Megapixels, users still require CCD imagers to acquire high-resolution images. But now, CMOS sensors are available with high and super-high resolution, and bring numerous benefits for developers of demanding applications in terms of quality, speed, pricing, and time-to-market.
Sony’s decision to execute their CCD end-of-line (EOL) opened the way to a secure CMOS transition in all areas, with reliable ten-years transition plans. This evolution has boosted CMOS development since then and changed the whole vision industry. Read more ›
Small, versatile and fast – Launch of a new generation of high-speed 3D cameras with Ranger3
Industrial applications are calling for precise 3D measurements at faster and faster speeds in flexible production processes. Zero tolerance, even in the case of the tiniest errors and irregularities, is the order of the day. The technology used for this purpose must remain in the background, must not take up too much space, and should enable low-energy, low-maintenance operation.
With a CMOS sensor and ROCC technology, SICK is taking 3D vision to the next level and setting new standards with Ranger3. Read more ›
New 5 Mpixel, 1/1.8 inch CMOS image sensor for machine vision
Teledyne e2v announces the expansion of its Emerald family of CMOS image sensors with a new 5 Megapixel device.
The EmeraldTM 5M is designed for machine vision, Automated Optical Inspection (AOI), and factory automation applications that require higher resolution images of objects in motion, with no distortion. Available in both monochrome and color, this sensor has a small 1/1.8 inch optical format, containing a 2.8 μm, low-noise, global shutter pixel, and arranged in a 2,560 x 1,936 array. The device can also stream video at 50 fps at 10 bits, over a 4 wire, MIPI CSI-2 interface. Read more ›
