Camera Gauge System

A camera gauge system from Newcomb Spring Corp. (Decatur, GA) provides precise, image-based length measurements, with data recording and reportable order details. The system measures compression springs as they are manufactured, capturing and saving a digital image of each part and recording part dimensions. If part measurements approach maximum tolerance levels, the system’s computer program automatically triggers an adjustment in connected wire coiling machinery, causing the equipment to recalibrate and comply more closely to nominal specifications. When the order is complete, a report and digital record is available for download.

3D Inspection Scanner

The new Gocator 3100 series of 3D smart snapshot sensors from LMI Technologies (Delta, B.C. Canada) combines 3D point cloud acquisition and 3D feature measurement tools in a single industrial package. The sensor includes an integral structured blue LED light projection illumination source with stereo scanning technology that allows 3D point clouds to be captured in a single snapshot, even under ambient light conditions. The Gocator 3100 performs high-resolution non-contact measurement at up to 5Hz. Possible measurements include holes, slots, studs, and gap & flush.

USB 3.0 Cameras

Lumenera Corporation (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) has released USB 3.0 cameras based on Sony’s EXview HAD II ICX674 sensor. Running 53 fps at full resolution, or 66 at an HDTV resolution of 1920 × 1088, the Lt365R series features memory buffer technology so frames are not lost while running the camera at the sensor’s maximum output. The Lt365R set also has a 2.8 megapixel progressive scan sensor equipped with a global shutter.

Embedded Video Interface

Pleora Technologies (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) has introduced an embedded hardware product for integrating GigE Vision 2.0™-compliant video connectivity into cameras, x-ray detector panels, and imaging systems. The iPORT™ NTx-GigE Embedded Video Interface is now in trials for use in medical, military, and industrial automation applications. Other features of the 37 × 37 × 28 mm iPORT NTx-GigE include Power over Ethernet (PoE) and external power options, combined with power consumption of approximately 2 watts when streaming video at 1 Gb/s. Metadata, such as pre-processing results or the position of a quadrature encoder, can be added to each image transmitted over the GigE link. The IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol synchronizes multiple cameras and imaging devices to a network master clock, with up to 1 μs (microsecond) precision.
