Baumer (Southington, CT) has introduced new HXG cameras that combine CMOS sensor technology with a dual GigE interface and PoE (Power over Ethernet). Available with 2- and 4- megapixel resolutions, Baumer HXG cameras transfer more than 100 frames/s. Dual GigE technology allows the cameras to double GigE bandwidth, achieving a bandwidth of 240 MB/s. If one GigE line becomes disconnected, the camera continues to operate on the remaining GigE line without requiring a power-down or reset.
The camera supports cable lengths of up to 100 meters. It enables high resolutions of up to 2048 x 2048 pixels. A Global Shutter sensor with Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) provides sharp images and low readout noise.
