Vision Sensors

Cognex Corporation (Natick, MA) has announced the In- Sight® 2000 vision sensor series. The In-Sight 2000 products include an integrated image-formation system consisting of field interchangeable lenses and a patent-pending LED ring light that produces even, diffuse illumination across the entire image. For specific applications, customers can swap out the lens and change the color of the integrated ring light as needed.

Infrared Cameras

FLIR Systems (Wilsonville, OR) offers the FLIR 1030sc High Definition (HD) Longwave Infrared (LW-IR) camera. Designed to help researchers and scientists, the T1030sc detects temperature differences of less than 20 mK at 30 °C. The T1030sc functions as a stand-alone data collection and analysis system in the field or as a fixed-mount thermal measurement tool in the lab. Able to record 1024 × 768 full frame video at 30 Hz, the device uses a high-speed interface to stream raw data at 120 Hz. FLIR ResearchIR Max software is included.
