In an effort to keep readers up to date on some of the latest cameras, software, boards, lenses, and lighting for imaging and machine vision applications, here is a roundup of some recently-released products from some of the leading companies in the industry.
Shortwave infrared camera from Allied Vision
Allied Vision’s Goldeye G-008 GigE Vision infrared camera (above) features a 320 x 256 InGaAs sensor with a 30 µm pixel size and is sensitive in the short wave infrared spectrum ranging from 900 to 1,700 nm at up to 344 fps. The new infrared camera also features a compact form factor (55 mm x 55 mm x 78 mm), as well as Allied Vision’s Vimba software development kit, which enables users to program their own applications across Windows and Linux platforms.
BrainLight LED lighting series from EVT
Designed for industrial applications, the BrainLight LED lighting series by EVT is comprised of the BrainLight QC backlight and the BrainLight R ring light. The BrainLight QC is a 48-LED grid of red, green, blue, and white LEDs with a diffuser glass for even light distribution, while the configurable BrainLight R ring lights feature an RS232 or TTL UART interface and a +5V or 12-24V input voltage.
VisualMARC software from Miktrotron
VisualMARC software is designed to provide a complete solution which allows users to record, play back, and edit high speed videos at speeds up to 200,000 fps. The software was developed for high volumes of data, fast transmission, and ultra-slow motion and includes such features as easy triggering, adjustable video playback speed, adjustable region of interest, and event logging.
Sealed linear lights from Smart Vision Lights
Featuring Smart Vision Light’s new Multi-Drive driver, which allows the light to operate in constant output mode or in OverDrive strobe operation, the LE Series of sealed lights can be deployed in harsh and wet industrial environments. The IP65-rated lights are available in 300, 600, 900, and 1200-mm lengths and come with T-slot mounting hardware.
MicroMate 3X zoom lens from Navitar
Designed specifically to work with high resolution 4/3” image sensor cameras, the MicroMate 3X zoom lens system from Navitar is suitable for use in industrial and life science applications. With a large field of view and fixed pupil position, the lens offers a fixed N.A. over the entire zoom range and can be combined with any infinity corrected microscope objectives to achieve magnifications from 1X up to 150X.
High-speed cameras from Vision Research
Phantom UHS-Series v2512, v2012, v1612, and v1212 cameras from Vision Research feature a proprietary 1 MPixel CMOS image sensor with 28 µm pixel size and 12-bit depth and can achieve up to 1,000,000 fps with the company’s FAST option at reduced resolution. The cameras feature 10GB Ethernet and Vision Research’s 1TB and 2TB CineMag IV to, which enables the recording of data to a a large amount of non-volatile storage.
