BASLER'S eXcite intelligent camera series now includes four new megapixel CCD models.
The existing eXcite versions have VGA resolution and can capture images at up to 180 frames per second (fps).
Available from Total Turnkey Solutions , the new variants are equipped with 1.45 and 2.0 megapixel CCD sensors and are available in monochrome and colour versions.
At full resolution, the new cameras can capture images at 17.8 and 14.0 fps respectively.
Basler’s many years of experience in camera development and their unique automated production testing system ensures high-level, repeatable image quality on all camera models.
The eXcite integrates a top-quality digital camera and a complete high-performance PC in a small industrial grade housing.
A 1.0GHz processor running a Linux operating system is the heart of Basler’s eXcite and represents a new generation of performance in the intelligent camera class.
Image processing can be done directly on the device allowing complex, high-speed applications. Instead of a large, inflexible interface, the standard Linux OS provides full access to the device and allows adaptation to a wide range of application specific requirements.
With the camera models now available in the extended eXcite family, customers can select an optimal fit for a wide range of applications such as precision measurement and positioning systems or inspection and identification applications.
By using the integrated communications interfaces on the eXcite, including opto-isolated digital IOs, super-fast GigaBit Ethernet, a serial channel and high-speed USB2.0, users can feed calculated results directly into the production process without the need for other hardware components. For instance, defective parts can be detected and removed from a production process.
Basler’s eXcite is a flexible, high-performance vision engine for advanced requirements.
