FXO camera series

SVS-Vistek uses the new Pregius S sensors of the fourth generation from Sony and the powerful 10GigE interface for their new FXO camera series. The new sensors deliver excellent image quality with a dynamic range of approximately 70 dB. Even with insufficient object lighting, when the camera is operated with a gain> 0, the FXO series enables images with excellent homogeneity and exceptional quality. The basis for this is, on the one hand, the integrated Pregius S Gen4 sensor with its relatively small pixels of 2,74 x 2,74 µm and, on the other hand, a sophisticated heating concept. The heat distribution in a camera plays a decisive role in image homogeneity. This applies even more to cameras that, like the FXO, are equipped with a 10GigE high-speed interface that generates considerable heat when in operation. In order to be able to operate the FXO cameras cool and with the maximum sensor frame rate, SVS-Vistek has implemented an elaborate thermal design with dust-free, external cooling.

With 10GigE, SVS-Vistek relies on one of the most modern machine vision interfaces currently available for data transmission and enables a stable Ethernet connection with full 10GigE bandwidth thanks to an intelligent frame buffer concept. The Power over Ethernet module (PoE) allows FXO cameras to be operated with a single supply line that implements the power supply as well as the 10GigE data transmission. The 10GigE connection is made via a standardized GenTL interface and thus offers a high degree of flexibility in the choice of software for image evaluation. The multi-channel strobe controller integrated in the camera and the precise I/O module with the sequencer are also addressed via GenTL in order to enable flexible software selection. The 10GigE interface does not require a frame grabber and is therefore a very economical interface. For applications where even more power is required, SVS-Vistek also offers the FXO models with the CoaXPress-12 interface.

The new FXO camera series includes models with resolutions from 16.1 to 24.5 megapixels and frame rates from 30.1 to 45 frames per second. With only 50 x 50 mm, the cameras of the FXO series have the smallest dimensions on the market and are therefore particularly easy to integrate into applications. The many mounting holes on the solid housing are typical for cameras from SVS-Vistek and simplify mechanical integration.
