Runner camera family

Share this on social media:

Basler Vision Technologies has expanded the feature set on its Runner GigE line scan camera family by adding shading correction, multiplier, and divider features. This release focuses on simpler and faster integration in different kinds of factory environments.

The shading correction feature can be used to compensate for non-homogeneous lighting conditions. In the resulting homogeneous images, the application software can more easily and accurately detect defects.

The second improvement is in the Runner's input/output block. To create the correct line acquisition rate for the camera, these I/O features offer different kinds of transformations for trigger and encoder signals from a conveyor belt. Both features can be implemented by simply determining the correct software parameters. They can be adjusted within a wide parameter range and can be used simultaneously in order to accommodate the required line trigger frequency over a wide variety of applications.
