Radiation-Hard Lenses

The new Model 346 non-browning lens from Resolve Optics Ltd. (Chesham, UK) operates with color sensors in areas subject to radiation. The lens uses special glass that withstands long-term exposure to radiation up to a dose of 100 million radians and temperatures to 55°C without discoloration. Able to operate at f/2, the device provides minimum geometric distortion from 400 to 750 nm. Objects can be imaged from 50 mm to infinity without using add-on adapters. The Model 346 lens is designed for optimized use with 15-mm diagonal color CMOS sensors. For Free Info Visit: http://info.hotims.com/55596-149

Line-Scan Cameras

Teledyne DALSA (Waterloo, ON, Canada) has expanded its Linea™ line scan cameras to include a new 8k GigE Vision model. The Linea 8k uses Teledyne DALSA’s CMOS sensor with 7.04 × 7.04 μm pixel size. The camera achieves a maximum line rate of up to 45 kHz. Cycling mode allows users to cycle through preset camera parameters, gain, exposure time, I/O outputs, and FFC coefficients for each line. An extended dynamic range feature combines short and long exposure images to output images with high contrast in both dark and bright areas.For Free Info Visit: http://info.hotims.com/55596-150

Frame Grabbers

AVC-2 frame grabbers from VRmagic (Mannheim, Germany) transmit converted digital signals in real time via composite, Y/C, or Svideo, in monochrome or color mode. The VRmAVC-2 is supplied with power via its USB connection and is available as an OEM model and model with housing. The integrated 64 MB memory ensures a stable operation. The VRmD3AVC-2 and VRm- DAVC-2, based on the intelligent camera platforms, perform image processing tasks fully autonomously. The D3 frame grabber VRmD3AVC-2 features a dual-core chip with floating point unit (FPU) running Ubuntu Linux. Peripherals, including a monitor via HDMI, can be connected directly; equipment can be controlled via RS232 or GPIOs. For Free Info Visit: http://info.hotims.com/55596-153

CMOS Cameras

Andor Technology (Belfast, Ireland/Concord, MA) has announced the Zyla 4.2 PLUS Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera. The Zyla 4.2 PLUS delivers a sustained 53 fps at full resolution through a USB 3.0 interface. New on-camera intelligence offers linearity improvements, providing quantitative measurement across the full dynamic range. The 4.2-megapixel camera, coupled with <1 e- read noise and 33,000:1 dynamic range, includes application-specific modes which adapt the rolling shutter scan mode to applications such as Scanning Light Sheet Microscopy and Line Scan Confocal imaging. FCS Mode provides a speed of 26,041 fps from a 2048(h) × 8(v) region of interest. For Free Info Visit: http://info.hotims.com/55596-154

CMOS Cameras

SMARTEK Vision (Cakovec, Croatia/New London, CT) has added GCP2061 and GCP2046 models to its Giganetix Plus camera series. The new industrial cameras are equipped with the Sony Pregius Exmor IMX250 and IMX252 sensors. With a high dynamic range of 70.9 dB and a readnoise value of 2.3 e-, the models support outdoor and traffic-monitoring applications. The cameras have a resolution of 3.2 or 5.1 megapixels at a pixel size of 3.45 μm. A variable-speed shutter function, a variety of exposure methods, a maximum of 64 definable regions of interest, and external trigger modes all enable application control and image transmission. Additional features of the Giganetix Plus series include fully GigE Vision-compliant hardware and driver interfaces, Windows- and Linux-compatible Giganetix GigE Vision SDK, and the use of industrial connectivity standards.
