Gigabit Ethernet camera series
The Imaging Source, a manufacturer of industrial cameras, has released a series of Gigabit Ethernet cameras, available in 27 models. The cameras are supplied in a robust industrial casing with a C/CS lens mount and, optionally, with a trigger and digital I/Os. The colour, monochrome and Bayer models are available in VGA, XGA and SXGA resolutions.
Camera setup is simple and integrating them into existing applications takes only a few lines of code. Drivers for LabView, Halcon, DirectX, Twain and WDM are included. All camera parameters and settings can be set via the supplied software. Furthermore, a number of automatic modes are available, which provide optimal image quality in varying light conditions.
The cameras are supplied with drivers for Windows XP/Visa, the SDK IC Imaging Control and IC Capture. The latter is a powerful end-user application, which allows all cameras parameters to be set, live video to be displayed, singular images and image sequences to be captured.
