JANUARY 18, 2010--The Zelos camera series offers 14-bit digitization and GigE Vision or power-over-Ethernet interfaces. The HD Zelos-02150 features 1920 × 1080-pixel resolution, 64 dB, and up to 30 frames/s processing. The Zelos-655 offers 5-Mpixel resolution, and the small cameras Zelos-414 and Zelos-415 are equipped with VGA and WVGA sensors. Functions include adjustments of exposure modes, readout modes, frame rates, gain and exposure settings, measuring window functions, contrast and edge enhancement functions, line and circular line generators, and dynamic lookup tables. The color processing offers adjustments for Bayer filter interpolation, color space transformation, and color saturation. The modular camera platform can serve different sensors and signal interfaces and can fulfill requirements for machine-vision applications as well as applications in defense, aviation, and medical imaging.

Zelos, new GigE Vision Camera Family for Machine Vision.
Kappa opto-electronics GmbH presents the new camera series "Zelos" on the basis of a high performance platform with 14 bit digitization and GigE Vision or Power over Ethernet interfaces. The HD model is Zelos-02150 with 1920 x 1080 pixel, 64 dB and up to 30 fps. The Zelos-655 offered 5 megapixel resolution and the small camera model Zelos-414 and Zelos-415 are equipped with VGA and WVGA sensors.
Kappa introduces new vision cameras based on our modular high-performance platform with 14-bit digitization. The series fulfills all typical Kappa quality characteristics regarding hardiness and longevity. The camera features several technical highlights. One of them is an excellent dynamic range and the brilliant image performance. A further plus is the high-performance GigE Vision interface. This creates a perfect combination of a high transfer rate (1 Gbit/s), a low-priced interface on the PC, inexpensive cabling with thin CAT5e cables up to 100 m (300 feet) and a standardized user-friendly communication protocol. The brilliant visualization of the smallest details with the lowest-contrast is the result of the numerous real-time signal processing functions based on a 14-bit digitization. Among the functions are adjustments of different exposure modes, read-out modes (e.g., binning, partial scan), frame rates, gain and exposure settings, measuring window functions, contrast and edge enhancement functions (e.g., histogram equalization), line and circular line generators and dynamic look-up tables. The color processing offers adjustments for the Bayer filter interpolation, color space transformation and color saturation. The modular camera platform can serve different sensors and signal interfaces and thus can fulfill the requirements for machine vision applications as well as applications in defense, aviation and medical imaging.
