Base and medium
Looking to interface a high-speed Camera Link camera to a PC? Check out the latest PCI-based add-in boards from Graphin, which interface to both Base and Medium Camera Link camera configurations.
Claimed to be the smallest piezomotor-driven translation stages currently available, PI-Polytec PIline combines piezomotor drives with a 0.1-µm linear encoder.
Ampex supplies a range of solid-state and tape-based storage peripherals to meet the demands of medical, high-speed-imaging, and military applications that require large amounts of data to be stored.
On this site, you can read how Dragonfly computing has developed a number of machine-vision systems for the inspection of microdisplays, airfoil parts, and razor-blade cartridges.
Cables for cameras
Founded in 1988, OCP manufactures cable and component products for machine-vision, industrial, instrumentation, and medical industries. Cables and connectors for Camera Link, USB, and fiberoptic-based cameras are featured.
Visible and IR
Founded in 1999, Vionics has developed a range of low-cost IR cameras and sensor-engine electronics based on microbolometer technology from DRS Infrared Technologies (www.drs.com).
