Sony Pregius Sensor

FRAMOS (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) now offers the Sony IMX392, a 1/2.3 type of imager with a square 1920 (h) × 1200 (v) active pixel array. The sensor has a pixel size of 3.45μm and is available in both color and monochrome versions. FRAMOS provides these sensors along with any support you need to get them integrated into your camera. The IMX392 using Sony's Pregius Global Shutter sensor technology provides 2.3 Megapixels, and runs at 167 fps @10 bits or 200 fps @ 8 bits.

Vision engineers can even improve the image quality in their applications by using the different read-out modes offered by the sensor, such as 2×2 vertical FD binning. In this mode, for example, the sensor allows the summing of neighboring pixels to provide a “super pixel” that helps when under low light conditions. The sensor comes with an 8/10/12 bit A/D converter and image data is transferred over a low voltage sub-LVDS interface.

Embedded SOMs & Development Kits

Critical Link's (Syracuse, NY) MitySOM-A10S is the newest addition to the company's line of industrial-performance embedded modules. The system on module (SOM) family is designed with the Intel/Altera Arria 10 SoC, which features dual core Cortex-A9 ARMs and up to 480KLE user-programmable FPGA fabric. In addition to the processor, the innovative module includes on-board power supplies, two DDR4 RAM memory subsystems, micro SD card, a USB 2.0 on the go (OTG) port, and a temperature sensor. The MitySOM-A10S Development Kit is now available from Critical Link and its distributors to offer developers a jumpstart on their projects. The MitySOM-5CSx family, based on the Intel/Altera Cyclone V SoC processor, is also available.

Ultra-High-Resolution Digital Imaging System

Designed to capture 11-million pixel resolution images, the Specialised Imaging (Pitstone, UK) SIR3 ballistics range camera provides more detail than any other high-speed camera in its class. A high-speed 1-Gbps Ethernet link enables the SIR3 to be easily integrated into almost any imaging environment. Comprehensive operational software provides simple control of imaging parameters and extensive measurement tools to accurately analyze results. Image archiving in a wide range of industry standard file formats is supported. For situations where more complex measurements are required, several SIR3 cameras can be operated from a single control computer with timings for all cameras linked to the same control screen. The rigid all-metal IP54 compliant construction of the compact SIR3 makes it ideally suited to withstand even the harshest outdoor environment.

Blue Laser Scanning Sensor

Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division (North Kingstown, RI) launched its first blue laser scanning sensor for creating point clouds, the HP-L-5.8. The HP-L-5.8 performs equally well when taking point cloud measurements from dark or shiny surfaces. Designed to be rugged and compact, it protects the sensor from collisions and vibrations and is ideal for use in areas where accessibility is restricted, as well as on smaller CMMs.

The HP-L-5.8 is seamlessly compatible with Hexagon CMMs that use PC-DMIS 2018 R2 and subsequent versions of the software and works with an automatic indexing probe head or continuous wrist, making it easy to operate for users of tactile probing tools.

Laser White Light Fiber Module

LASER COMPONENTS USA (Bedford, NH) recently demonstrated for the first time the ALBALUX FM, world's first laser white light module with bright and highly directional fiber optic output for precise and contrast-rich illumination in next-generation medical and machine vision applications. A key component of ALBALUX FM is the LaserLight technology from SLD Laser. Based on GaN semi-polar blue laser diodes, LaserLight generates brilliant white light that is more than 10 times higher in luminance than today's LEDs, yet with minimal power consumption and long lifetime.

To maximize light transmission and precise beam directivity, optical fibers are incorporated that enable unprecedented >150 lumen CW output with sharp narrow edges. This results in enhanced vision that provides faster processing times and more reliable monitoring on the manufacturing floor, and improved diagnostics and patient outcome in medicine.

MWIR Camera Cores

FLIR Systems (Meer, Belgium) has announced three new Neutrino™ midwave infrared (MWIR) camera cores: the small, lightweight FLIR Neutrino LC and two FLIR Neutrino Performance series cores, the SX12 and QX. The Neutrino LC is FLIR's first High Operating Temperature (HOT) MWIR camera core and the first model in the SWaP+C (Size, Weight, Power, and Cost) series. As the smallest, lightest, and lowest power consuming Neutrino model available, the LC can be integrated with smaller drones and allow drone operators to fly longer.

The two new Neutrino Performance series products, the Neutrino SX12 and the Neutrino QX, offer the highest-resolution MWIR performance from FLIR. The Neutrino SX12 produces high-definition (HD) thermal imaging video, while Neutrino QX, with more than 3.1 megapixels, is FLIR's highest resolution MWIR core. Both Neutrino Performance models provide crisp imagery at long distances while maintaining a wide field of view and are ideal for ground-based or airborne intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), and counter-drone solutions.
