Baumer has launched its innovative SXG imagers at Stuttgart-based Vision 2010 exhibition, which features Kodak’s Quad Tap sensors with Dual GigE technology for high frame rate and image quality applications.
With the advent of novel interface technology, the image having resolutions in the range of 1 to 8 megapixels and 120 fps are relayed to the PC by means of standard GigE connection boards, with information-transmission potentiality ranging at 240 MB/s over 100 m for effectively using Kodak Quad Tap sensors.
According to Baumer, it deploys dynamic LAG instead of static Link Aggregation Group (LAG) for automatically assembling the Ethernet ports, avoiding error sources. The Dual GigE technology enables reliable communication, allowing secure camera functionality, even when one of the two Ethernet wires is unplugged. Most of the cameras are delivered with Power over the Ethernet (POE) methodology to avoid the use of an additional power wire.
Baumer has also exhibited its new series of VeriSens vision sensors, with a rugged metal enclosure having IP 67 certification for the optics, lighting, measuring electronics and Ethernet connection. The vision sensor features a 12-pin interface and five sensitive digital inputs and feedback loops.
Baumer has also showcased its innovative HXC40 imager featuring a global shutter at the expo. The imager is configured to operate similar to a sequencer and activator delay. The resolution of the camera is 2048 x 2048 pixels measuring 52 x 52 x 38 mm. The CMOS sensor delivers 180 fps in complete-image resolution mode. For high dynamics applications, it captures images with a maximum of 90 dB. The integral memory allows an acquisition of a sequence of images. Thereby, instead of using the Camera Link Full interface, by limiting the data transmission, a Camera Link Base connection can be deployed.
