MARCH 6, 2009--For OEM applications with tight or angled installation space, a camera with an offset and freely positionable sensor is connected to the central unit by up to 50-cm-long flex-foil-cable with LVDS transmission. The sensor board is 28 x 19 mm. The 1/3-in. CMOS sensor with global shutter is capable of producing 69 images/s at a resolution of 754 x 482 pixels and 80 images/s at 640 x 480 pixels, which is suitable for capturing both still images and fast motion sequences. The camera is available in monochrome and color, as a board camera (VRmC-12eOEM) or equipped with standard M12 optics (VRmC-12eCOB). The central unit is 42 x 38 mm. A USB 2.0 interface allows data transfer to a PC without additional frame grabber hardware; power is supplied via USB cable. If an application uses several cameras, they can be triggered synchronously with the software trigger. The SDK offers an interface to ActiveVisionTools, Common Vision Blox, and Halcon.

VRmagic presents OEM camera with freely position able sensor

For OEM applications with tight or angled installation space VRmagic now offers a camera with an offset and freely position able sensor which is connected to the central unit by an up to 50 cm long flex-foil-cable with LVDS transmission. The size of the sensor board is only 28x19 mm.

The 1/3-inch CMOS sensor with global shutter is capable of producing 69 images per second at a resolution of 754x482 pixels and 80 images per second at a resolution of 640x480 pixels. This makes the camera ideal for capturing both still images as well as fast motion sequences. It is available in monochrome and color, as a board camera (VRmC-12eOEM) or equipped with standard M12 optics (VRmC-12eCOB). The size of the central unit is 42x38 mm.

A high-speed USB 2.0 interface allows data transfer to a PC without additional frame grabber hardware. Power is supplied via the USB cable.

If an application consists of several cameras, these can be triggered synchronously with the software trigger. The API of all VRmagic camera models offers developers' unrestricted access to all sensor parameters and raw sensor data. The SDK offers an interface to ActiveVisionTools, Common Vision Blox and HALCON.
