Protecting large cameras: Orca enclosures from autoVimation
Karlsruhe – autoVimation presents new enclosures from the IP67-protected Orca line which are now available for all cameras with a cross section of up to 62 x 62 mm. This includes large camera models such as Toshiba Teli, SVS Vistek, Basler and Rauscher AViiVA line scan cameras as well as Sick's Ranger line. Just like the proven Salamander series, Orca enclosures are based on a patented quick lock and heat guide system which thermally couples the camera to the outer enclosure wall. Due to the passive cooling effect of the enclosure wall, the camera temperature is reduced by up to 10 degrees. The mounting position within the enclosure is flexible: the camera can be installed at any angle and in any position. Combined with autoVimation's mechanical kit for image processing solutions, Orca enclosures can be used to easily create complete machine vision systems. Users of Sick's Ranger camera, for instance, employ Orca enclosures to build stable, weather-resistant 3D scanners.
Moreover, Orca enclosures are now also available with a big 3” front window which allows for the installation of wide-angle lenses or large telecentric lenses. For outdoor applications, the enclosure can be fitted with a controlled heating system which ensures a minimum temperature of 10 °C within the enclosure at outside temperatures as low as -45 °C, thereby preventing damage to the camera. Orca enclosures are available in three standard sizes with a maximum length of 250 mm. Further options include various back walls which can be fitted with large cable glands.
Established in 2008, Karlsruhe-based autoVimation was founded by Peter Neuhaus to provide solutions for easier installation and adjustment of image processing components. The company has developed a modular construction kit that simplifies the connection of all required components, which does away with costly and time-consuming manufacturing of dedicated mounting brackets. The product portfolio also includes compact, easy-to-integrate enclosures that provide optimal protection for cameras and lenses in industrial applications, and ensure good heat dissipation. autoVimation supplies complete, ready-to-install mechanical solutions for cameras and light fittings, and enables the integration of special lenses, filters, light barriers, encoders, or other sensors.
autoVimation's customers include renowned companies from various industry branches, such as the pharmaceutical and food industry, measuring technology, quality control, and security technology.
