Prosilica GT camera

10 October 2011

From November 8-10, 2011 Allied Vision Technologies (AVT) will be exhibiting at VISION 2011 in Stuttgart, the leading industrial imaging show. At Booth no. D33 in Hall 4, AVT will reveal its newest camera models.

Precise images under any weather conditions: Prosilica GT
The new Prosilica GT camera series was developed especially for challenging outdoor applications. Applications such as traffic or security monitoring still constitute a significant market segment for traditional machine vision cameras and systems. Outdoors, however, cameras are subjected to great temperature fluctuations and changing light conditions. To meet these demands, the Prosilica GT can be used in environmental temperatures of -20°C to +60°C (-4°F to 149°F). Moreover, it is equipped with a Precise Iris and DC auto-iris lens control that adapts adjustments according to changing light ratios, whether due to weather, time, or season.

Prosilica GX

New Prosilica GX6600 with 29-megapixel sensor
At VISION 2011, the Prosilica GX6600 will celebrate its premiere as well. The Prosilica GX family’s new top model is equipped with the new Kodak KAI-29050 Quad-Tap sensor. This high-resolution (29 megapixels) sensor delivers outstanding image quality and sensitivity with low noise. Thanks to its double Gigabit Ethernet interface with Link Aggregation Group, the Prosilica GX6600 can handle immense quantities of image data while maintaining a transfer rate of 4 images per second.

Also new to the Prosilica GX family is the Prosilica GX2750. It makes use of the new Sony ICX694 CCD sensor with 6-megapixel resolution. Thanks to ExView HAD technology, this sensor offers especially high sensitivity and image quality. The Prosilica GX2750 delivers a rich 19 fps (frames per second) at full resolution thanks to its GigE LAG interface.

New technologies for new market segments
With the acquisition of German camera manufacturer VDS Vosskühler in Osnabrück, Allied Vision Technologies now presents a significantly expanded camera and technology portfolio.

Among the highlights is the Bonito, a new high-speed camera model with a 4-megapixel CMOS sensor and Camera Link interface that delivers up to 386 fps at full resolution. High-speed cameras with global shutter sensors are suited for demanding applications for the inspection of still and fast moving objects.

New as well to the AVT family are NIR/SWIR and LWIR infrared cameras. The four Goldeye (near-infrared) and Pearleye (long-wave infrared) models make what is invisible to the human eye visible, which visitors to the AVT booth can see for themselves in impressive product demonstrations. Using infrared cameras, for example, they can see through certain materials or generate a thermal image of an object.

For applications requiring especially high image quality, the cooled CCD cameras of the Bigeye family complete the AVT palette. With the aid of built-in Peltier cooling, the sensor is actively cooled and noise is minimized accordingly, in particular with long exposure times. Cooled CCD cameras are especially favored in demanding industrial and scientific applications.

“We’re looking forward to VISION 2011 and the opportunity to introduce the professional world to our newest developments and the expanded product program with which we will address a multitude of interesting applications,” commented Frank Grube, President/CEO of Allied Vision Technologies.
