Press release date: December 12, 2011

Camberley, UK - Image processing specialist FRAMOS, announces the new USB3.0 Super-Speed Interface for the Visiosens VFU Camera Platform enabling data transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps.

The Visiosens platform concept provides a single highly sophisticated software interface for all your cameras in all your applications, including specifically customised devices. The table below shows the range cameras with their respective USB interfaces and frame rates.

The newly extended VF camera series is available now and is much more than just a range of cameras; it is a highly flexible and customisable image capture platform with more than 140 camera variants per image sensor.

The Visiosens platform comprises a growing range of CCD and CMOS image sensors with resolutions ranging from 0.4 to 10.1 Megapixels, a variety of output interfaces including USB2.0 & USB3.0 with fully-owned drivers, complementary assembly concepts, mounts, filters and an optional integrated LED ring. For all variants, the user and system interface is built on a unified, future-proof, cross-platform software development kit based on the latest .NET(TM) technology and compatible with Windows and Linux.

The extremely robust camera housing is specifically designed for industrial systems as well as for microscopy. It offers multiple mounting options on each side and front face, all of which are symmetrical to the optical axis of the sensor. You can choose from C-, CS- or M12-mounts for all models. An optional LED ring with 7 colour options, integrated in the housing and connected to the 8-pin I/O port with 3 IN and 3 OUT ports saves money and space.
