Line-Scan Camera

The 3DPIXA 3D line scan color camera from Chromasens (Burlington, MA) employs factory-calibrated stereo engineering. To output both color images and 3D altitude data in real time, the Chromasens 3DPIXA simultaneously captures two images of the same object. Height and shape are calculated using special algorithms running on the GPU.

Frame Grabbers

The PIXCI® EB1mini frame grabber from EPIX (Buffalo Grove, IL) captures from any base Camera Link device. The frame grabber includes trigger input, strobe output, shutter control, bit-packing capability, 64 bit memory addressing, and video rate sequence capture. The XCAP-Lite imaging program, provided with the PIXCI® EB1mini, provides control of image capture, as well as all board functions, through the Capture & Adjust Dialog.

X-Ray CCD Cameras

Andor Technology (Belfast, UK) has announced the iKon-M SY and Newton SY series of CCD cameras. The ‘standalone’ detectors offer -100°C deep cooling, optimized for the soft X-ray region. The 200-micron-thick Beryllium window blocks unwanted lower energies and visible wavelengths, with minimal beam hardening. The detectors are integrated and supported in a range of third-party software using Andor’s SDK, including MAT-Lab, LABView, and EPICs.

Camera Link Selector

The CLM-602 Camera Link Multiplexer from Vivid Engineering (Shrewsbury, MA) interfaces two Camera Link cameras of any configuration (base, medium, full, 80-bit) to one frame grabber. The CLM-602 incorporates high-speed (85 MHz) interfaces. Multiple camera selection methods are provided, including rear-panel switch settings, Camera Link interface signals (serial or camera control), and an external RS-232 port. The selector is housed in a sturdy, compact aluminum enclosure.

786nm Laser Diode Modules

Lumics GmbH (Berlin, Germany) has broadened its portfolio of single-mode fiber pigtailed butterfly 14-pin modules by adding 786nm to that product line as a standard wavelength. Modules are now available in the following wavelengths: 786, 793, 808, 850, 915, 980, 1012, 1025, 1032, 1064, 1070, and 1080nm. Other customized wavelengths between 750 — 1100 nm are available on request. The Lumics' hermetically sealed BTF14 modules are manufactured as per Telcordia standard GR-468-CORE. The modules can be either cw or pulsed. They are available with up to 500mW output power cw, or up to 2W pulsed. Lumics offers all BTF 14-pin modules also with a laser diode driver e.g. as a compact, table-top solution. www.lumics.com
