Adimec announces new ultra high-resolution camera series
No longer a trade-off: Ultra high-resolution combined with high-speed cameras now available
The SAPPHIRE series
October 17th, 2012
EINDHOVEN, the Netherlands – October 17, 2012 -- Adimec (www.adimec.com), a world leader in application-specific,
leading-edge industrial camera solutions, announces the first member of the new
CMOS-based SAPPHIRE series,
The S-25A30 camera is based on the VITA 25k image sensor. Adimec developed the new Sapphire-series camera platform especially for
OEMs of metrology and inspection equipment who require ultra high-resolution images at high speeds. Using proprietary camera design,
the S‐25A30 has finally made it possible to effectively use CMOS sensor technology in electronic manufacturing systems, like PCB
inspection and flat panel inspection, by producing CCD-like images.
The S‐25A30is a 25 megapixel CMOS global shutter camera and delivers images of 5120 x 5120 pixels at 32 frames per second (fps).
Using the Region Of Interest (ROI) function the frame rate can be increased, for example 100 fps at 8 Megapixels. It is equipped
with a Camera Link full and deca interface.
The SAPPHIRE series contains a defect pixel correction algorithm especially designed for large area scan image sensors.
This algorithm maintains high image uniformity even with a high number of defect pixels that are more common in these kinds
of sensors. The S-25A30 is designed to be stable 24/7 and delivers reliable and predictable high quality images required for
inline inspection equipments.
The SAPPHIRE series has low power consumption of 6.5W. Together with an effective thermal design we could keep this series
very compact. Therefore the S-25A30 is easy to integrate without unwanted noise caused by heat.
This and other included developments to the
• 25 Megapixels at 32 frames per second
• Camera Link
• Compact form factor
• Low power dissipation
• 8 Megapixels at 100 frames per second (or other options) through ROI
• Supporting custom image processing
The combination of Adimec image quality, compact form factor and low power usage makes the
camera ideal for inspection systems that require high resolution to increase throughput or accuracy.
At the Vision International Trade Fair for Machine Vision in Stuttgart, Germany November 6-8, 2012, Adimec will exhibit the
SAPPHIRE series. In Booth number 1G68, Adimec will demonstrate the S-25A30, which is a 25 Megapixel camera with 32 fps over
Camera Link using the latest VITA-25k sensor.
