The camera has many similar characteristics to the company’s VEO640, including high image quality and high frame rates at 4Mpx resolution, but its output is not confined to the camera’s RAM. The unit’s sensor has a 10 micron pixel size, which makes for more light sensitivity, and has an ISO rating of 6500 for monochrome and 1250 for color. It also has 12-bits, a noise level of 20.5e- and dynamic range of 55.9dB. The camera also features a general-purpose input/output (GPIO) for fast, flexible signaling and synchronization. It includes signals beneficial in standard high-speed applications, such as Time Code In and Out, as well as signals commonly found in streaming applications. The camera streams at high frame rates using CXP6 protocol, and features four banks of four CXP6 connections each. Each bank connects to a four-port frame grabber, or two banks can connect to an eight-port frame grabber. Once the frame grabbers receive the data, the image is stitched together and processed with any other customer algorithms. The data can be analyzed immediately or stored in a long-record DVR for post analysis. The camera is compatible with any PCIe3 CXP6 frame grabber. However, frame grabber manufacturer, Euresys, has made the stitching function easier by incorporating it into the software of their Euresys eight-port Octo board.
Machine Vision Camera Delivers up to 6Gpx/sec (75Gbps)
The Phantom S640 from Vision Research gives demanding applications frame rates up to 1480 fps at full 4 Mpx resolution of 2560 x 1600 and up to 200,715 fps at lower resolutions.
