Case Study

Machine vision ensures orderliness in new high-bay warehouse

ImageKiefel GmbH, which belongs to the Brückner Group, stocks up to 14,000 parts in its new high-bay system at its site in Freilassing with a storage area of around 1400 m² and a footprint of 120 m². Machine vision components from STEMMER IMAGING and the know-how of the integrator phil-vision ensure that the company doesn’t lose track of things.
“We wanted to achieve more storage space on a smaller footprint than we have up to now and at the same time make our warehouse more comfortable,” says Robert Hammer, logistics manager at Kiefel GmbH in Freilassing, describing the essential goals behind the change to a high-bay system, which was put into operation in spring 2017. Since then twelve Kardex high-bay towers have provided sufficient space at the company’s main plant for the tidy storage of up to 14,000 parts.

New cameras with IP 65/67 protection ensure reliable operation from -40 °C to 70 °C

Image Thanks to the extended temperature range from -40 °C to 70 °C, the new CX series cameras with IP 65/67 protection are ideal for demanding applications under extreme conditions. Selected models eliminate the need for additional cooling or heating units and therefore ease thermal integration, saving time and system cost. The IP 65/67 rated housing protects all sensitive camera elements against dirt, water jets and short-term immersion and makes additional housing protection unnecessary. Furthermore, the optional modular tube system with a variable number of extension tubes allows lenses to be quickly adapted to the application with great flexibility. Read more ›

SONY brings IMX327 STARVIS sensor with high sensitivity for better surveillance

ImageSony Semiconductors releases its new STARVIS IMX327 sensor as a more sensitive successor to the IMX290. The 2.1 Megapixel sensor, with a 1/2.8 inch optical format, has a 1920 x 1080 pixel array utilizing a 2.9µm pixel size. The IMX327 reaches a frame rate of 60fps at 12 bits. With its high sensitivity and very good low light performance, this reasonably priced sensor is a great fit for security and surveillance applications as well as for factory automation and industrial solutions. The sensor, along with additional support services, are available from global imaging expert FRAMOS. Read more ›

ON Semiconductor brings 5 Megapixel CMOS backside illuminated image sensor at high speed for surveillance


The new ON Semiconductor AR0521 is a 1/2.5” image sensor with a 5 Megapixel resolution, offering 60 fps for excellent video performance. The 2.2 µm Back Side Illuminated pixel technology enables clear, sharp digital pictures while the sensor’s ability to capture both continuous video and single frames makes it the perfect choice for security applications. A demo kit is available for the AR0521 along with additional services provided by the global imaging experts at FRAMOS.

8K Camera from XIMEA with 48 Mpix and up to 30 fps now released

Image Newest models in the high-speed line of PCI Express cameras announced earlier are now available to order.
The well-known line called xiB already offers 4K and 5K models with 12 and 20 Mpix resolution and fast speed. With the addition of the new CMV50000 sensors from CMOSIS (AMS) to the xiB camera the 8K resolution is now available! We anticipate the initial stock to be low until the end of 2017 and production to begin in earnest early in 2018 – please get your inquiries in now!
