NOVEMBER 25, 2009--The IP67-protected Salamander housing series has been designed for compact cameras with cross-sections between 29 x 46 mm and 36 x 36 mm. Measuring 66 x 66 mm, the housings are suitable for installation in tight spaces. Like their larger counterparts from the Gecko housing series, Salamander housings are available in various lengths starting at 130 mm. With a patented quick-lock and heat guide system, cameras can be easily installed in the housing. These mounting elements also dissipate the heat generated by the installed camera, effectively cooling it. Conduit tubes and separable cable glands allow for waterproof insertion of cables with various connectors and a maximum diameter of 23 mm into the housing. Within the housing, the camera can be positioned anywhere along its central axis and at any required angle. A variety of mounting brackets allows users to adapt the camera installation to any application.

PRESS RELEASE

New Salamander-type housings from autoVimation

Karlsruhe - In the light of increasing miniaturization in the field of image proc-essing, autoVimation has developed the new, IP67-protected Salamander hous-ing series for small compact cameras with cross sections between 29 x 46 and 36 x 36 mm. Measuring only 66 x 66 mm, the housings are suitable for installa-tion in tight spaces. Just like their "bigger brothers" from the Gecko housing series, Salamander housings are available with various lengths starting at 130 mm. Thanks to a patented quick lock and heat guide system, cameras can be easily installed in the housing. These mounting elements also serve to dissipate the heat generated by the installed camera, thus effectively cooling it. Conduit tubes and separable cable glands allow for the waterproof insertion of cables with various connectors and a maximum diameter of 23 mm into the housing. Within the housing, the camera can be positioned anywhere along its central axis and at any required angle. A wide range of mounting brackets allows users to adapt the camera installation to any application.

Salamander housings are based on the standardized "Mechanical Machine Vision Interface" developed by autoVimation, which allows for all compatible image processing components to be connected directly with the housing. This does away with the time-consuming manufacturing of dedicated light holders. The Salamander mounting block is available as an alternative for compact cameras in applications where no IP protection is required.

Company Background
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 housings that provide optimal protec-tion 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.
