SVS-Vistek, based in Germany, has released an ultra high-speed version of the 16 Megapixel camera SVS16000-U with Gigabit-Ethernet interface. The progressive-scan camera is equipped with an Interline Transfer CCD sensor from Kodak with a diagonal of 43.3mm. By using two Ethernet connections the camera achieves a maximum frame rate of 4fps with a full resolution of 4896 x 3280 pixels. In the partial-scan mode or when using AOIs, images can be processed at higher speeds. Binning with 2x2 pixels is also possible. The camera is available in monochrome or colour versions and is suitable for applications such as print inspection, PCB inspection, optical metrology, and the semiconductor industry.
SVS-Vistek's camera configuration software SVCapture allows the user to adjust various camera parameters, such as 'free-running' or 'triggered'. An SDK and the provided driver permit a simple and user-specific integration into machine vision systems.
For optical interfacing a M58 thread or an F-Mount adapter can be provided. A compact housing of 70 x 71 x 50.5mm permits installation in confined areas.
