Why the upgrade to 5GigE is so important
Interview with Klaus Mählert, Portfolio Manager Camera and Acquisition

Image GigE technology has revolutionised high performance industrial cameras used over Ethernet. Since 2006 we have gone from the original GigE cameras to 5GigE, 10GigE and even 25GigE cameras.

The latest image sensors provide high resolution images with high frame rates and when coupled with the evolution of data interfaces, you have too many options and configurations to choose from. Some guidance is clearly required.

Case Study

Robot for foosball table using XIMEA high speed camera

Foosball: Human versus Robot using high speed XIMEA camera

ImageProfessors and students at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne are developing a robotic player installed into a foosball table. The plan is to make it more accurate, faster, and more strategic than any potential human player.
Therefore, the system should be able to find the ball’s position on the table, evaluate a strategy of how to score and execute it with the help of precision motors. The latest performance improvements to the vision and strategy aspects were made possible by the implementation of a high-speed camera from XIMEA.
The camera, placed under the table, runs at 500 frames per second (fps) and creates a solid basis for the detection and control of the ball in real time. At its current stage of development, the foosball table robot is able to beat any regular player it encounters.

New Fujinon lens series for 3-chip cameras

Image The new FUJINON TF-MA lens series from Fujifilm was developed for industrial-use high-resolution 3-chip color cameras and is optimized for precise measurement and inspection tasks. The special design of the series of three C-mount lenses with focal lengths of 6 mm, 14 mm, and 25 mm meets the highest demands in terms of color reproduction and optical resolution.

In the machine vision sector, 3-chip color cameras are used in environments where images of highest color fidelity and optimum image resolution are required. They incorporate a prism block as beam splitter and utilize band-pass filters that distribute the incident white light to three beam paths for red, green, and blue. Read more ›

Newest RGB prism color camera has high-speed 10 GigE interface

Image JAI has introduced a new 3.2-megapixel, 3-CMOS prism color camera in its Apex Series that runs at nearly double the fastest frame rate of its previous 3 x 3.2-megapixel models.
