10 GigE Industrial Camera with 12 megapixel Sony Pregius sensor
VRmagic Imaging is extending its 10 Gigabit Ethernet camera series to include the Sony Pregius IMX253 CMOS sensor. The full sensor resolution of 12.3 megapixels (4,096 x 3,000) can be used at frame rates of up to 60 Hz via the GigE Vision interface of the camera. This means that the new camera model is suitable for applications with high demands in terms of resolution and speed – such as wafer, panel or PCB inspection, image analysis in sport, traffic-related applications or 3D structured light projection. With a data rate of up to 1.25 GB/s, 10 Gigabit Ethernet is one of the fastest interfaces available on the market for industrial image processing. With very low latency and high image quality, 10 GigE cameras connect without problems to standard network switches and interface cards using Cat 6 copper cables. The new RIC10-camera family from VRmagic Imaging additionally supports the new 5 GbE and 2.5 GbE NBASE-T modes so that operation in networks with existing Cat 5 cables is also possible without problems. When developing the camera series, particular attention was paid to the needs of industrial customers with the robust IP65/67 aluminum housing and industry-grade M12 screw connectors. The camera version with the Sony Pregius IMX253 is available from March 2017.
