Prosilica GT cameras
Allied Vision Technologies has released eight new models from the Prosilica GT family of cameras for extreme environments.
The models are Gigabit Ethernet cameras designed to perform in extreme environments in temperatures from -20°C and up to 65°C. The cameras feature PoE (Power over Ethernet), and auto-iris (P-iris and DC) lens control in the standard body GT camera, and Canon EF lens control in the large body GT cameras. The cameras are ideal for a wide range of demanding applications including ITS and traffic imaging, machine vision, security, surveillance, military applications and more.
Two models are equipped with the CMV2000 and CMV4000 global shutter CMOS sensors from Cmosis. The Prosilica GT2000 runs 50fps at full 2,048 x 1,088 resolution, and the GT2050 25fps at 2,048 x 2,048 resolution.
Both models are available in an NIR optimised variant that doubles the quantum efficiency at 900nm from 8 per cent to 16 per cent absolute.
The GT3400 is a 9 Megapixel camera equipped with a Sony ICX814 EXview HAD CCD II sensor, a device that provides excellent image quality, high sensitivity and near infrared response combined with low noise imaging and improved anti-blooming. The camera runs 13fps at full 3,384 x 2,704 resolution.
The Prosilica GT4905 and GT4907 both feature a 16 Megapixel CCD sensor from Truesense Imaging. The GT4905 comes with the KAI-16050 CCD sensor in APS-H optical (32.36mm) diagonal format with a frame rate of 7.5fps. The GT4907’s KAI-16070 35mm sensor is based on a new 7.4µm interline transfer CCD platform that provides an impressive 40,000 electron well capacity, increased dynamic range, and high smear rejection as well as a frame rate of 7.6fps at full resolution.
The 29 Megapixel Prosilica GT6600 features the KAI-29050 CCD device from Truesense Imaging, which, supported by the 5.5µm pixel architecture from the KAI sensor family, provides high sensitivity and low noise performance. The GT6600 camera outputs 6,576 x 4,384 pixels at 4fps.
All three Truesense sensors feature a vertical overflow drain structure designed to suppress image blooming and enable electronics shuttering for precise exposure control. The cameras are equipped with an F-mount as standard, with a Canon EF motorised and M58 mount option available, and are compatible with a wide-range of high quality commercial and industrial lenses.
