Cameras resist moisture, particulates in harsh environments

FEBRUARY 17, 2009--For harsh and demanding applications, new GigE cameras are engineered with IP67-rated enclosures that withstand both moisture and particulate contamination.

FEBRUARY 17, 2009--For harsh and demanding applications, new GigE cameras are engineered with IP67-rated enclosures that withstand both moisture and particulate contamination. All critical components on the Baumer TXG cameras are contained within the IP67 housing, specifically the electronics, the CCD sensor, and the C-mount for the lens. The enclosure is available in four different lengths that correspond with lens length. Industrial M-12 connectors connect the cameras with the network interface. High-speed multicamera operation and frame rates of up to 90 frames/s are possible, with resolutions from VGA to 5 Mpixels. The cameras can change image formats "on the fly" and offer low readout noise and minimal heat generation. Standard functions include gain, offset, and exposure time settings as well as binning and true partial scan (ROI) readout modes. A generic application programming interface, Baumer-GAPI, facilitates integration.

PRESS RELEASE

BAUMER GigE CAMERAS WITH IP67 HOUSINGS

Cameras Resist Moisture and Particulates in Harsh Environments

Southington, Conn. -- January 22, 2009 -- For harsh and demanding end use applications, Baumer has introduced new GigE cameras engineered with special IP67-rated enclosures that withstand both moisture and particulate contamination. All critical components on the Baumer TXG Cameras are contained within the IP67 housing, specifically the electronics, the CCD sensor, and the C-mount for the lens.

The enclosure is available in four different lengths that correspond with lens length. The enclosure's design eliminates the potential for misalignment or defocusing of the lens, problems that can corrupt the precision of the vision system. The Baumer TXG Cameras with IP67 Housings feature industrial M-12 connectors that connect the cameras with the network interface.

Baumer IP67-rated TXG Cameras feature high-speed multi-camera operation and frame rates of up to 90 frames per second with resolutions from VGA to 5 Meg. These cameras have the capacity to change image formats "on the fly," and offer extremely low readout noise and minimal heat generation. Standard functions include gain, offset, and exposure time settings as well as binning and true partial scan (ROI) readout modes for improved sensitivity in low light applications or increased frame rates. A generic application programming interface, Baumer-GAPI, facilitates the camera's integration into any application and provides camera control and development.

For more information on the new Baumer TXG Cameras with IP67 Housings, contact Baumer at (800) 937-9336, http://www.baumerelectric.com/usa, or via e-mail at MAILTO:sales.us@baumergroup.com. Baumer is a global leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of high quality, precision sensors since 1952 serving a variety of markets including Automation, Graphics, Robotics/Material Handling, Medical, Machine Tool and Specialty Machines.
