Aven HDMI Color Camera Offers Measurement Ease with Built-In Software
A sophisticated new HDMI camera with measurement software and SD card allows precise quality control inspections on shop floors without a computer.
By eliminating outside software or a laptop for image processing, the Aven HDMI Color Camera for microscopes reduces workbench space, avoids program installation or updating, and removes compatibility concerns. Engineers, inspectors and research technicians just need a monitor, as the camera’s HDMI port allows a direct link.
“This integrated instrument is a simple, one-piece solution for parts checks, other manufacturing QC and R&D support,” says Mike Shahpurwala, president of Aven, a global optical equipment supplier. "USB mouse controls for measuring and annotation bring convenience and time savings."
High-resolution images are displayed at 1920 x 1080 pixels, assuring optimal clarity and quality. Video is captured at 30 frames per second on the built-in 4G memory card. Freeze-frame capability yields crisp, clear images without motion blur.
Features also include a calibration scale, crosshair grid for quick gauging, edge detection and individual RGB contrast adjustments. The advanced software, able to detect gray scale gradations, can measure a line, circle, radius, angle and parallel lines in millimeters or inches.
Users can save five sets of measurement data on the SD card, which simplifies comparisons and record-keeping.
White balance and exposure can be automatic or one-click mouse functions.
The HDMI Color Camera, which comes with a C-mount for coupling to standard microscopes, has a CMOS 1/2.5" sensor.
