APRIL 16, 2009--The 63 x 63 x 64.5-mm MotionBLITZ EoSens mini high-speed recording camera features integrated GigE Vision and GenICam compatible interfaces. The variable plug position on the rear or left side of the housing simplifies installation in cramped conditions. Photo sensitivity of 2500 ASA monochrome and 2000 ASA color RGB enables use under low light conditions, allowing reduced lighting components and cost. Built-in fixed pattern noise (FPN) correction on a pixel-by-pixel basis corrects black level and dynamic deviation with the help of an internally stored reference image. The selectable, nonlinear dynamic transfer function delivers sharp detail in bright areas, compared to other cameras that saturate. Internal dynamic range is up to 90 dB with a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels and 506 frames/s with 8-bit monochrome output or optional 24-bit RGB with Bayer filter. Up to 113,000 frames/s can be achieved with reduced resolution.

PRESS RELEASE

April 2009

Extremely light-sensitive high-speed storage camera at minimum form factor

Across all areas of automated manufacturing, as in research and development, processoptimisation without motionanalysis is not possible. Recording of High Speed Cameras opens up many potentials of effective optimisation. In consequence that means dramatic cost cuts. Very often, the space around the objects to be analysed is too tight and restricted to use a bulky High Speed Camera in combination with lighting equipment.

Mikrotrons new, extremly small and light sensitive High Speed recording Camera‚ MotionBLITZ EoSens mini with outstanding performance provides new and up to now unreachable possibilities of application. With its size of only 63 x 63 x 64,5 mm (H x W x D) and integrated GigE Vision and Genicam compatible interface it is unique in its class and offers a maximum of flexibility, mobility and ease of use. The variable plug position on the rear or on the left side of the housing also simplifies the installation in cramped space conditions. A very attractive price/performance ratio helps for a quick payback of the investment.

An extremely high photo sensitivity of 2,500 ASA monochrome and 2,000 ASA color RGB enables the using of the MotionBLITZ EoSens mini even under low light conditions. The lighting costs can be reduced to compact, inexpensive and energy-saving components.
The build in (Fixed Pattern Noise) FPN correction on a pixel by pixel base corrects black level and dynamic deviation with the help of an internally stored reference image and provides crisp clear and low noise images. The selectable non linear dynamic transfer function delivers distinctive details even in extremely bright areas, where other cameras would simply saturate. MotionBLITZ EoSens mini has internal dynamic of up to 90 dB with a resolution of 1,280 x 1,024 Pixel and a framerate of 506 fps (frames per second) with 8-Bit output monochrom oder optional 24-bit RGB with Bayerfilter. A framerate of up to 113,000 fps can be achieved with reduced resolution.

Even without connection to an extern Laptop Computer, the internal memory can store up to 3.3 sec with full resolution and speed. The included MotionBLITZ Director is industry wide known for ist comfort and ease of use. As an example the RoI function provides images of arbitrary position and size while automatically selecting the maximum image speed. With the also integrated ImageBLITZ Auto Trigger - a freely defineable trigger image within the live image as real time optical sensor - even very sporadic events can be captured and recorded. Additional functions are Burst Trigger- and Multi Sequenz Mode.
