VeriSens vision sensors control Universal Robots
The new smart VeriSens vision sensors XF900 and XC900 control the collaborating robots (cobots) of Universal Robots within only a few minutes of setting up. The robot-compatible vision sensors are mounted directly on the cobot or above it. Thanks to the SmartGrid (patent pending), calibration in terms of image distortion, conversion into world coordinates, and coordinate alignment between the vision sensor and robot take place automatically and extremely easy. This eliminates the conventional required elaborate manual “hand-eye” calibration of the robot and vision sensor. Read more ›
Reduce time to market with transport layer IP Cores
The core competency of engineers designing machine vision cameras and systems is usually configuring the core camera features to provide the best possible image while meeting size, weight, power budget and other requirements. But they also have to devote considerable time and effort to successfully streaming the image from the camera to the host. Leading edge vision transport layer standards such as GigE Vision, USB3 Vision and CoaXPress (CXP) are complex and are evolving, so several months of work by experienced protocol engineers is typically required to design the interface.

Newest multi-spectral prism cameras: up to 146% more resolution at up to 7.5X higher frame rates
JAI has launched a new generation of prism cameras in its Fusion Series of multi-spectral imaging solutions. The new FS-3200D-10GE and FS-1600D-10GE cameras have two-channel dichroic prisms that divide the incoming light to two precisely-aligned CMOS area scan imagers. One channel captures light from the visible spectrum (approximately 400 nm to 670 nm) and delivers it to a Bayer color sensor, while the second channel directs light from the near infrared (NIR) portion of the spectrum (approximately 740 nm to 1000 nm) to a monochrome, NIR-sensitive sensor.

Launch of 2K Triton Line Scan Camera Featuring IP67 Protection for Industrial Applications
The Triton line scan camera is the newest addition to the Triton series, featuring the “2K AMS Dragster DR-2k-7” monochrome line scan sensor with a 7 μm pixel size and a resolution of 2048 x 1 at a line rate of 60 kHz. Additional features such as IP67 protection, a robust M12 Ethernet GPIO connector, Power over Ethernet (PoE) and a temperature range (0°C to 55°C ambient), ensure a reliable operation in demanding industrial environments. Due to its lightweight, compact 29 mm x 29 mm size, the Triton line scan camera is smaller than most line scan cameras on the market and can easily fit in nearly any application. Read more ›
VisualApplets 3.2 Released
Silicon Software GmbH, manufacturer of frame grabbers and intelligent image processing solutions, has released version 3.2 of its VisualApplets graphical development environment, with a scalable operator for JPEG compression of grayscale and color images, and further developed the automation of the software by a Tcl console and additional features.
The JPEG application with its encoding performance of up to 7.2 GB/s on the current microEnable 5 marathon frame grabber series represents the most powerful market solution. By combining it with further image processing steps, high-quality color reconstructions from Bayer CFA cameras can be latency-free pre-connected.

Newest LWIR camera excels in machine vision applications
Teledyne e2v announced its second-generation Calibir DXM640 camera. The compact and uncooled Calibir LWIR platform offers outstanding shutterless performance and is optimized for Size, Weight and Power (SWAP). This higher performing version will be useful for both machine vision, where synchronization is required in an active inspection system, and in defense and security applications requiring low NETD and networked cameras.
The Calibir DXM640 features both shutter and shutterless operation and rapid image output on power up while delivering uniform response over the entire operating temperature range. Read more ›
