High-Speed Camera

Vision Research (Wayne, NJ) has introduced the Phantom® Miro® C-Series. The 73 × 73 × 72 mm cameras withstand shocks of 170G and vibration of 17 grms. Comprising two models, the Phantom Miro C210J and C210, the Miro C-Series includes a 12-bit, ½-inch CMOS sensor, which captures images at a maximum speed of 2,000 frames per second (fps) at full 1280 x 1024 resolution. With standard mounting holes integrated into the camera bodies, the Miro C210J and C210 can be securely fastened and positioned.

Vision Sensors

Baumer (Southington, CT) has expanded its VeriSens XC series vision sensor portfolio to include models capable of color identification and inspection. Color FEX, a new, intelligent feature for setup of 3D color identification and definition, automatically identifies and visualizes object colors in 3D as color spheres. The resulting absence of sphere collisions ensures reliable color inspection.

Single-Chip Optical Encoders

iC-Haus (Bodenheim, Germany) has developed sensor chips for optical position encoders using photodiodes designed especially for blue light. The new iC-PT H-Series chips combine optimized scanning and signal interpolation in a flat 5 x 5 mm² optoQFN package with a plane window. Due to the optimized Phased- Array structure of the opto-chips, a minimal scanning area of only 1.9 mm x 3.1 mm is sufficient to generate 10,000 pulses per revolution using a code disc of only 26 mm diameter, for example. The blue light LEDs increase contrast with lower noise. The shorter wavelength and penetration of blue- light photons improve the resolution, signal amplitude, harmonic distortion, and jitter performance of incremental and absolute encoders. www.ichaus.com/encoder-blue

Five-Watt LED G9 Lamp

MaxLite (West Caldwell, NJ) has introduced an energy-efficient replacement for 40-watt halogen T4 G9-based lamps. The five-watt LED retrofits easily into existing G9 sockets in decorative glass pendants, chandeliers and bath bars. Available in dimmable and non-dimmable versions, the lamp delivers up to 450 lumens with a 300-degree beam angle for uniform light distribution. With a 2.4-inch maximum overall length and 1.6-inch heat sink diameter, MaxLite’s five-watt lamp is TUV safety listed and may be used in non-enclosed luminares in dry locations. www.maxlite.com/products/led-g9-retrofit-lamps

Thermal Imaging Camera

The FLIR Systems (Meer, Belgium) A6700sc features a highly sensitive 640x512 pixel resolution Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector that produces temperature- calibrated IR imagery for research and science applications. A6700sc cameras have been designed to stream temperature-calibrated data over Gigabit Ethernet to a PC for live image viewing and recording. Using FLIR’s ResearchIR software, researchers and scientists can monitor, acquire, analyze, and share data. In addition, extender rings for zoomed-in fields of view make the camera perfect for imaging small thermal targets, and close-up lenses can detect spot sizes down to 15um per pixel. www.FLIR.com
