Subminiature series industrial cameras offer high-quality monochrome and color 5 Mpix CMOS sensors,
USB 2.0 interface, and APIs for more than 30 leading image processing libraries in both subminiature
board-level and enclosed camera configurations.
MUNSTER, GERMANY, October 26, 2012 – Designed for OEMs wanting to add industrial imaging functionality to highly
integrated machinery with tight space requirements, XIMEA GmbH’s MU9 compact industrial cameras offer high-resolution 5 Mpix CMOS
sensors with USB 2.0 data interface, and free application programming interfaces (APIs) for most commercial image processing
systems in board-level and steel housing enclosures as small as 15 x 15 x 3 mm.
The MU9 subminiature industrial camera line includes four models, all shipping in quantity today. The MU9PC_MBRD and MU9PM_MBRD
cameras are board-level color and grayscale cameras, respectively, based on the APTINA MT9P031 2592 x 1944-pixel CMOS sensor with
global shutter. The MU9PC_MH and MU9PM_MH cameras also use the APTINA sensor in both color and grayscale configurations but include
a steel housing that increases the dimensions of the camera from the 15 x 15 x 3 mm board-level camera size to 16 x 16 x 13 mm with
M12 lens mount. All of the MU9 cameras offer ~70 db of linear dynamic range with a signal-to-noise ratio of ~38 db, 5 V USB 2.0
data interface, and 2IN/2OUT general-purpose input/output for camera control and triggering. Color cameras use a RGB Bayer Matrix
Connecting the MU9 series cameras to
industrial data processing systems, OEM equipment, and PCs is greatly simplified with the inclusion APIs for the most common
image processing software, including programs such as VisionPro, MIL, LabVIEW, MVTec’s Halcon, Tordivel’s Scorpion Vision Software,
OpenCV, AForge.Net, and many more.
