Product News: Baumer HX Cameras--1.3 Megapixel, 500 FPS

Cameras allow high-speed inspection in low-light environments.

Published: Wednesday, June 17, 2009 - 10:30

(Baumer: Southington, CT) -- For ultra-fast machine vision applications, Baumer has introduced the new HX Cameras, a series of high-speed CMOS cameras that offer frame rates up to 500 fps and resolutions greater than 1.3 megapixels at 1,280 by 1,024 pixels. These cameras excel in demanding machine-vision applications such as semiconductor quality control or high speed industrial process analysis.

HX Series cameras can deliver frame rates up to 120,000 fps by restricting image data to one, two, or three regions of interest within the full frame. By supporting the CameraLink communication standard, the cameras can achieve guaranteed data transfer rates up to 680 MB per second.

HX Series cameras provide exceptionally high photo sensitivity to 2500 ASA, allowing high-speed inspection in low-light environments without the need for supplemental lighting. For highly dynamic applications containing very bright and very dark objects, the cameras offer an adjustment that resembles the nonlinear dynamic response of the human eye.

For environments with changing light conditions or outdoor machine-vision applications, HX Series cameras offer a multi-exposure capability that delivers enhanced images with up to seven accumulated exposures. Each exposure results in a corresponding image.
