Camera platform features USB3.0 and latest CCD sensor-based camera
Image processing specialist Framos has announced its new Visiosens VF camera series – a flexible and customisable image capture platform with more than 140 camera variants per image sensor. Its new key features include the Mini-B USB2.0 and the latest Micro USB3.0 super-speed interface with up to 5 Gbps as well as the latest Sony ICX445 CCD sensor-based camera.
The Visiosens platform concept provides a single highly sophisticated software interface for all your cameras in all your applications, including specifically customised devices. The platform comprises a growing number of image sensors, a variety of output interfaces, complementary assembly concepts, mounts, filters and an optional LED ring with seven wavelength options. For all variants, the user and system interface is built on a unified, future-proof, cross-platform software development kit based on the latest .NET technology and compatible with Windows and Linux.
The robust camera housing is specifically designed for industrial systems as well as for microscopy. It offers multiple mounting options on each side and the front face, which are all symmetrical to the optical axis of the sensor.
A choice of C-, CS- or M12-mount options are available for all models. The optional LED ring, integrated in the housing and connected to the 8-pin I/O port, with 3 IN and 3 OUT ports saves money and space.
The VF-Series offers a wide range of cameras designed for industrial applications, equipped with a growing range of both CCD and CMOS sensors of various resolutions from VGA (0.4) up to 10 Mega-pixels.
The single-board design for the USB2.0 and the dual-board design with native USB3.0 chipset both enjoy fully owned USB2.0 and USB3.0 drivers.
