Mako camera family
Allied Vision Technologies (AVT) has released the Mako camera family for industrial imaging. This ultra-compact entry-level model will initially be available in two interface variations: GigE Vision and USB3 Vision.
Mako has a housing measuring 29 x 29mm. The camera’s I/O port has one optically isolated input and three optically isolated outputs available that allow for the easy operation of several peripheral components such as lighting variations. Thanks to the Power over Ethernet interface, the GigE Vision models can be powered directly from the interface cable, or alternately, can be supplied using a Hirose connector with up to 24V (DC).
Seven Mako models with GigE Vision interface and resolutions from VGA up to 4 Megapixels will be available. Both CCD and CMOS sensors with global shutter are represented, including CMOS varieties with increased near-infrared sensitivity. Mako delivers up to 300 images per second at full VGA resolution (0.3 Megapixels).
Alongside GigE Vision, Mako will also be available with the USB3 Vision interface, with variants with VGA, 2 and 4 Megapixel CMOS sensors from Cmosis (CMV2000 and CMV4000).
The first Mako models with GigE Vision interface will be available in the first quarter of 2013, with further models released thereafter.
