autoVimation (Karlsruhe, Germany) has extended its Salamander line of protective enclosures, adding the new Fire Salamander model, which provides IP66/67 protection for compact cameras in hygienically demanding environments such as pharmaceutical and food industry applications. The units also ensure reliable heat dissipation. Made from electropolished, especially corrosion-resistant V4A stainless steel (1.4404), the enclosures do not have corners where dirt or germs could accumulate. Moreover, their smooth front is easy to clean. With a diameter of 69 mm and a length of 110 mm or more, they can be easily integrated into plants and machines with limited installation space. Optionally, the enclosures are also available with a lateral cable exit.
Like all protective enclosures from autoVimation, the Fire Salamander models are based on the standardized “Mechanical Machine Vision Interface”, which allows for all compatible image-processing components to be connected directly with the enclosure. This does away with the time-consuming manufacturing of dedicated light holders.
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.
