Upgraded CX series
Baumer continues to upgrade the successful CX series with the latest CMOS sensors and up to 12 megapixel resolution. Now, firmware release 2 is speeding up image processing to greater than 1000 fps by ROI selection (Region Of Interest). The new standard-compliant sequencer in conjunction with the existing burst mode open up virtually unlimited possibilities in dynamic applications.
Thanks to ON Semiconductor PYTHON sensors, partially selected pixels are being read out not only vertically but also horizontally at increased speed, which results in significantly higher ROI frame rates. The CX cameras in compact 29 x 29 mm housing with PYTHON sensors from VGA to 5 megapixel now even more efficiently solve dynamic tasks in packaging, food and beverage, medical technology and many other industries.
The new sequencer allows changing camera settings during the acquired image sequence. This is possible even at maximum sensor speed and independent of the interface bandwidth thanks to burst mode and integrated image memory. For tasks in glass inspection, for example, different types of illumination can be controlled via the camera outputs to synchronize exposure times with each and every acquired image. Selecting image-related ROI size or position is also possible, for example where detecting moving objects.
The new firmware release 2 is available for all CX camera models with resolutions from VGA to 12 megapixel and which include Sony Pregius and ON Semiconductor PYTHON sensors and GigE and USB 3.0 interface. Camera integration is easy and convenient as always using the Baumer GAPI SDK.
