InGaAs GigE Line Scan Camera from Teledyne Dalsa
Teledyne DALSA introduced its first short-wave infrared (SWIR) line scan camera Teledyne DALSA’s GigE line scan camera features a cutting-edge InGaAs sensor in a compact package for a wide variety of machine vision applications. This high speed, high resolution camera is the ﬁrst product in DALSA’s SWIR family. The uncooled sensor features 40 kHz line rate with horizontal resolution of 1024 pixels on a 12.5 µm pitch.
xiCUSB 3.1 cameras from Ximea
Ximea released USB 3.1 Gen1 cameras with Sony CMOS – xiC. Camera was designed to be as small as possible in size and mass, this device also has the world’s lowest power consumption for these sensors. Thanks to its slim two-board stack size, the xiC camera line can be tightly integrated into embedded and multi-camera systems. It is available with Sony Pregius global shutter sensors, from 2.3 to 12.4 Mpix.
Smart-VS™ – the smart vision sensor from Datalogic
Datalogic released Smart-VS™ – the smart vision sensor. Designed for all kinds of users and installers, the Smart VS can easily be set by just pushing a button and following 3 easy steps. No expert programming is needed, no vision tool setting is required, and no external custom monitoring tools are necessary to achieve object detection tasks. The cost of ownership tremendously decreases because of its innovative ease of use and smart concept. It can be used in the Food and Beverage, Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Packaging sectors or even in automotive or automatic assembly.
New VS-TLS Lens series from VS Technology
VS-Technology announced the release of the VS-TLS series 1 2MP 1.1″ Front Unit – Rear Unit Reconfigurable Telecentric Lens. This new series supports a maximum FOV 275mm (diagonal) and three magnifications by changing the combination of front and rear units. This lens series is designed for the demands of machine vision systems and metrology applications that require a large field of view. By taking advantage of the changeable magnification it is cost effective and easy to fine tune with the focus function.
VPC-3350AI platform from AAEON
AAEON announces the VPC-3350AI, combining two Intel Myriad X VPUs with the Intel Atom x5 processor for faster and smoother video processing. This platform is a perfect fit for AI and edge computing applications, including license plate and facial recognition. As an in-vehicle AI embedded system, it helps to power driver safety applications, such as advanced driver-assist systems (ADAS) or driver monitoring and behavior analysis for heavy vehicle operators.
The AMS210 embeded box PC from Ibase
Ibase released The AMS210, which is a high-performance embedded box PC designed for factory automation, machine vision, digital signage and a wide range of industrial IoT applications. It can be outfitted with 9th/8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and two 2.5″ disk drives with RAID 0/1.
„37 and 38” USB camera series from Imaging Source
The Imaging Source 37 and 38 series cameras feature different Sony CMOS monochrome and color sensors from VGA to 12 MP with optional I/O and trigger. High frame rates, excellent color fidelity and high sensitivity are the hallmarks of the Sony Pregius (global shutter) and STARVIS (rolling shutter) CMOS sensors, making them well-suited for numerous machine vision tasks in production, inspection, quality assurance and ITS. USB3 Vision compliance and type-C-port connectors ensure straightforward integration in applications adhering to the standard. The extremely compact (starting at 30mm x 30mm x 15mm) and lightweight board cameras are available optionally with a standard (back of camera) or side-mounted USB 3.1 port.
Halcon 20.05 from MVTec
MVTec released Halcon 20.05 version. New version features are:
– improved subpixel barcode reader
– deep learning training on CPU
– surface based 3D matching
– improved generic box finder
– improved deep learning anomaly detection
and much more.
Zivid | 3D Cameras & Machine Vision Systems
Zivid, the 3D machine vision camera company, has announced a major update of its software development kit. Introducing a range of ground-breaking industry firsts, Zivid SDK 2.0 beta includes filtering to correct contrast distortion artifacts, enhanced HDR image capture sequencing, and multi-camera calibration. The new contrast distortion correction will enable developers to address a fundamental source of error in active 3D measurement technology, such as structured light. Signal blur at high-contrast transitions, notably on metal surfaces with strong highlights, cause artifacts and heavily distorted/deformed 3D point clouds. Zivid’s enhanced vision engine algorithm effectively removes the problem for the very first time.
Fast Code Reader from Imago Technologies
IMAGO Technologies released the FastCodeReader, which is designed for high process speeds of up to 800m/min. The integrated line scan camera is optimised for long and single-line code lines on packaging, foils and packages (image size e.g. 300×500 pixels). The reader reads (OCR) numbers, letters and characters and codes, such as serial, batch, product numbers, best before date or entire address files. The intelligence of the integrated VisionCam also allows the simultaneous identification of different data, e.g. code, texts and logos.
