Prosilica has released its compact GS-Series periscope-type CCD cameras for machine vision based on Prosilica's GB-Series single-board cameras. These high performance cameras with Gigabit Ethernet interface are aimed at industrial inspection, general machine vision, microscopy, and high-shock and vibration applications.

The first four models to be released are the GS650, GS660, GS1380, GS2450, ranging from VGA to 5 Megapixel resolution and full resolution frame rates to 120fps. This new series of compact CCD cameras combines high performance, high reliability, and versatility, into a rugged aluminium housing (55 x 90 x 25mm) designed to sustain high shock and vibration. The GS-Series are available in colour or monochrome models, with landscape or portrait orientation and with ¼ mounts built into the housing to add even further flexibility to the set-up process.

The GS-Series cameras feature progressive scan Sony CCD sensors for high image quality and sensitivity. Cameras are fitted with a C-mount with adjustable back focus or an optional CS-mount. The GigE Vision compliant Gigabit Ethernet interface allows cable lengths of up to 100m (300ft) long using conventional network cables, and up to tens of kilometres using fibre optics.

Like all Prosilica cameras, the GS-Series incorporates camera features including snapshot/global shutter, pixel binning, area of interest readout, external trigger and sync I/O, auto-iris control, and RS-232 peripheral port, among others.
