Edmund Industrial Optics Announces Basler Area Scan Cameras
October 15, 2002, Barrington, NJ - Edmund Industrial Optics (EO) of Barrington, New Jersey has announced the release of Basler area scan cameras that provides IEEE-1394 standard output, high sensitivity, and high frame rates in a compact package. Applications include glass bottle inspection, robotic vision, semiconductor or electronics inspection, microscopy, and optical character recognition. The high-frame rates are ideal for applications that need to image objects in motion.
The camera is available in models providing VGA (640 X 480 pixel), CCIR (780 X 580 pixel), or Megapixel (1300 X 1030 pixel) resolution. The monochrome or color cameras incorporate a BCAM 1394 driver to provide high-speed video output -- as high as 75 frames per second for the VGA camera. The driver is compatible with Windows 2000, and offers both low and high level interfaces, as well as C++ source code.
All the cameras include test images to confirm that the camera is processing all data included in the image. Users can externally synchronize the camera, as well as program the exposure times, gain, and offset. With an optional external 9-pin cable, users can access external triggering capabilities. The CCIR monochrome model includes a shading correction feature that allows users to correct for uneven illumination across the field.
The cameras measure less than 62 X 62 X 50 mm and weigh 310 g.
