OCTOBER 28, 2009--Baumer TXG multi-I/O GigE cameras are outfitted with four independent I/O ports -- with customizable pulsewidth-modulated (PWM) signals -- located adjacent to the trigger and flash connection. The ports allow a direct connection between the camera and the illumination module, eliminating PC control over lighting. The cameras are available with resolutions ranging from VGA to 5 Mpixel and rates up to 90 frames/s.

UNIQUE BAUMER GigE CAMERAS WITH MULTIPLE I/Os
ALLOW ENHANCED LIGHTING CONTROL
Advanced Cameras Directly Control Pulse Width Modulated Signals
Southington, Conn. - To increase the flexibility of machine vision systems and allow control over custom-designed LED illumination, Baumer has introduced advanced GigE cameras outfitted with 4 independent I/O ports located adjacent to the trigger and flash connection. The Baumer TXG Multi-I/O Cameras feature I/O ports with customizable pulse width modulated (PWM) signals. These ports allow a direct connection between the camera and the illumination module, eliminating PC-control over lighting.
The camera's internal PWM controller can be programmed to set both the duty cycle and the frequency of the modulated signal. Each independent port provides a current of 100 mA. The internal sequencer technology allows the camera to take pictures with different settings for gain and exposure, and to control illumination without a PC, ensuring fast and reliable operation. The Baumer TXG Multi I/O Cameras are available with resolutions ranging from VGA to 5 megapixels and frame rates up to 90 frames-per-second.
