5GigE Atlas cameras and Helios time-of-flight camera

Lucid Vision Labs, a designer and manufacturer of industrial vision cameras, has announced the entry into serial production of its Atlas 16.8 MP and 19.6 MP cameras over 5GBASE-T PoE.

The 5GigE Atlas models feature high resolution Sony Pregius global shutter CMOS image sensors including the 16.8 MP IMX387 with a resolution of 5456 x 3076 px running at 33 fps, and the 19.6 MP IMX367 with a resolution of 4416 x 4428 px running at 28 fps. With a 4/3” format, both these models are equipped with a TFL lens mount (M35 x 0.75) which can easily be adapted to F-mount and C-mount.

The 5GigE Atlas camera is designed for applications requiring high bandwidth and high resolution in a compact size. The 5GBASE-T Ethernet interface is 5 times faster than Gigabit Ethernet, 50% faster than USB3.1 Gen1 and offers similar bandwidth as CameraLink, and allows the use of standard CAT5e and CAT6 cables up to 100 meters. Atlas features Power over Ethernet (PoE) that simplifies integration and reduces cost. Despite its compact 55 x 55 mm size, Atlas supports large format APS-C image sensors and features Active Sensor Alignment for superior optical performance.

Atlas is a GigE Vision and GenICam compliant camera capable of 600 MB per second data transfer rates (5Gbps). All LUCID cameras conform to the GigE Vision 2.0 and GenICam3 standards and are supported by LUCID’s own Arena software development kit. The Arena SDK provides customers with easy access to the latest industry standards and software technology. The SDK supports Windows, Linux 64bit and Linux ARM operating systems, and C, C++, C# and Python programming languages.

The monochrome versions of these sensors are now in full production, the colour versions will become available in Q3 2019.

Helios Time of Flight

Also Lucid Vision Labs has announced that its Helios Time of Flight (ToF) camera is now in series production.  

Helios is a compact, high precision, industrial 3D camera that integrates Sony’s new DepthSense IMX556PLR back-illuminated ToF image sensor. The camera delivers 640 x 480 depth resolutions at a 6m working distance using four 850nm VCSEL laser diodes. On-camera processing provides range, intensity and confidence data which reduces the need for expensive host system components. A robust design with an M12 Ethernet connector and up to 100m cable length makes the camera ideal for a variety of factory and warehouse environments.

Lucid’s own Arena SDK includes easy to use controls for the Helios ToF camera.  The ArenaView GUI can show the intensity and depth of a scene in either a 2D view or a 3D point cloud view, which can be manipulated and oriented in real-time. Additionally, settings can be adjusted and seen in real-time, including false colour overlay and depth range.

Helios HLS003S is list priced at $1,750 USD and is now available to order.
