CX polarization cameras – Nothing remains hidden anymore
The new CMOS-based CX series polarization cameras with GigE and USB 3.0 by Baumer, uses the polarization properties of light and thus allows a wide range of new industrial image processing applications, e.g. for quality control in glass production, carbon fiber fabric (CFRP) or reflective surfaces. The cameras use the 5 Megapixel IMX250MZR global shutter sensor by Sony which has an additional polarization layer consisting of four polarization filters (0°, 90°, 45°, 135°) at the pixel level. A single image is sufficient to simultaneously determine the degree and angle of polarization of the polarized light without changing the filter. Read more ›
BITFLOW – First CXP v2.0 Frame Grabbers
BitFlow, a global innovator in frame grabber technology for machine vision, announced today that it will display its first generation of CXP v2.0 frame grabbers at the upcoming VISION Show scheduled for November 6-8, 2018, in Stuttgart, Germany.
Over the past two years BitFlow has furnished input and direction to the Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA) on the finalization of the new CoaXPress v2.0 (CXP v2.0) standard — an upgrade that will double the speed of the interface used in the inspection of semiconductors, food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals, among others.

11Mpixel CMOS image sensor for high-speed applications
Teledyne e2v announces the expansion of its Lince family of image sensors with a new 11Megapixel detector. Lince11M is a new CMOS image sensor designed for applications that require 4K resolution at very high shutter speed. This standard sensor uniquely combines 4K resolution at 710 fps in APS-C format.
Lince11M can be advantageously used for in-line inspection to increase manufacturing throughput, or with strobed lighting for multispectral imaging or multi field (bright field, dark field, backlight) imaging, and serve as an alternative to line scan sensors to improve defect classification where uniform image sharpness across all directions is critical.

Next generation family of frame grabbers for high-performance image acquisition
Teledyne DALSA announces the next generation high-performance family of frame grabbers – the Xtium2 for the PCIe Gen3 platform.
The Xtium2 family starts with the introduction of two new models of frame grabber boards featuring AIA’s Camera Link HS® interface: the Xtium2-CLHS PX8 and Xtium2-CLHS FX8. The series will also provide support to upcoming and existing interfaces like CoaXPress® (ver 2.0) and Camera Link.
The Xtium2-CLHS PX8 features 7-lanes operating at 10 Gbit/s using CLHS X-Protocol and can deliver host transfer bandwidth in excess of 6.8 GByte/s. Read more ›
16 Mpix high resolution camera with exciting speed possibilities
Following the release of the initial model with 12 Mpix at 333 Fps, XIMEA is now ready for orders of an additional version with high resolution of 16 Mpix and speeds over 300 frames per second.
The exceptionally fast PCIe interface allows the xiB-64 camera family to stream data at speeds as high as 64 Gbit/s over distances of up to 300m without the need of expensive frame grabbers or special, complicated software. Resolution range of this camera line starts at 1 Mpix up to 16 Mpix and is further enhanced with a Canon lens EF-mount that allows remote control of aperture, focus and image stabilization.
