CCD Cameras

Lumenera Corp. (Ottawa, Canada) released the Lm family of mini-CCD USB 2.0 cameras for industrial markets. The Lm075, Lm135, and Lm165 function in low light conditions and where space is restricted. The cameras measure 44 × 44 × 56 mm, have fast frame at VGA through megapixel resolution, and include industrial locking USB and GPI/O connectors, eight mounting points, electronic global shutter (for high speed objects), and on-board processing and sensitivity for image quality. Higher frame rates are available at lower resolution, with full sub-window control and live focusing models.

Pulsed Solid-State Laser

The TruPulse laser from TRUMPF (Farmington, CT) is a pulsed solid-state laser that allows the average power to be briefly exceeded and increases the pulse frequency. The product range is based on a modular supply structure, and the average power ranges from 20 to 150 watts at a maximum pulse power of up to 10 kilowatts. Within this range, beam qualities of 4 to 25 mm•mrad are possible.
