Teledyne's new products target factory automation
Teledyne Flir Integrated Imaging Solutions (IIS) has launched a camera platform and imaging software for factory automation applications.
The Spinnaker 4 is the next-generation GeniCam3 API library for machine vision developers to evaluate, test, and deploy products quickly. The new software release includes advances in GigE camera performance and reliability.
Camera system performance testing, which included operating imaging systems with 40 GigE cameras continuously for multiple days at a time, resulted in no incomplete images. Image capture is maintained even when pushing the system CPU usage to more than 90%, with intensive image processing and multiple background applications.
The Forge camera platform, Forge, uses Spinnaker’s new software architecture and is available in a variety of camera models across multiple sensors. It is designed to quickly and easily build robust and powerful imaging systems. It offers flexible link speeds as well as the ability to go beyond 5GigE performance and control data transfer to the host.
