3 Megapixel USB 2.0 colour cameras
The Imaging Source, an international manufacturer of industrial cameras, has launched four low-cost 3 Megapixel USB 2.0 colour cameras. The cameras are supplied in a robust industrial housing with a C/CS mount and are optionally available with a trigger input. The frame rate is 10.9fps at a maximum resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels.
These one-board cameras, with the compact dimensions of 46 x 46 x 15mm, can be easily integrated into small devices and machines, and are thus of particular interest to system integrators and OEMs.
The cameras are supplied with software for programmers and end users, and are simple to integrate into existing applications. Drivers for LabView, Halcon, DirectX, Twain, WDM are supplied with the cameras. All camera functions can be set and adjusted via software. A number of automatic modes are available to ensure that the image quality remains optional, even in constantly changing lighting conditions. Drivers for Windows XP and Windows Vista, the SDK IC Imaging Control and end user software IC Capture, are supplied. IC Capture is a end user application, with which all camera parameters can be set and singular images and image sequences can be captured.
Optionally, the cameras can be post-fitted with a ring light system, also manufactured by The Imaging Source. All ring light functions can be controlled by IC Imaging Control and IC Capture.
