Online Training: Colour Pipeline of a Camera
How to make a beautiful colour image out of the signal delivered by a sensor?

The training will start with a short overview of the sensor and the lens, and will then dive into the details of a “standard” colour pipeline that is used to make a colour image out of the raw sensor signal. The training is accessible to designers, development and test engineers that deal with colour cameras.

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Albert Theuwissen
Date: 5. und 6. Juli 2021

Kibele-PIMS Shows How Imaging Ensures Food is Reliably Sorted and Packaged
Fully Automated Packaging Systems Use Reliable, Durable Cameras to Ensure Sufficient Resolution and Speed for Flawless Sorting and Packaging

In their facilities in Istanbul, Kibele-PIMS has developed and commissioned two state-of-the-art, fully automated systems for the Unilever companies Knorr and Lipton, where food is identified, sorted and then stacked on pallets by robots. The larger of the two systems was built for Knorr. Its task is to classify the types of soup, sauces and other company products, packaged in small batches, that are delivered from production via a 27-meter-long feeding conveyor, and then to transfer the identified product types to the respective packing station.  Read more ›

High performance cameras with powerful 40x autofocus-zoom
The Harrier 40x AFZ camera is compact and light yet powerful enough to be ideal for a range of applications including surveillance, defense, transport, industrial inspection and remote monitoring. The HD-VLC® model supports high-speed video transmission up to 3Gbps over very long cable lengths and slip rings, further increasing its flexibility.
Due to their high speed and ease of control, the cameras are particularly well-suited for use in applications where real-time data acquisition is essential, for example, mounted on UAVs and ROVs. Read more › 

New High-Speed Module For Modular 3D Sensor
A sensor speed of up to 26 kHz, a resolution rate of 4,096 measuring points per profile and a data interface for 3D sensors according to the latest standard: The cx4090HS is the first sensor module of the new C6 series from AT – Automation Technology, which complements the modular 3D sensor concept. With a factor of 1.8, the module is almost twice as fast as the previous 4K models of the C5 and MCS series, so that the measurement possibilities in the 3D sector thus reach a completely new level.

Direct control: 65 MP cameras for Canon EF lenses
Two new 65 megapixel cameras enhance the Baumer portfolio of high-resolution and robust 10 GigE cameras of the LX series. Thanks to an integrated EF mount, Canon EF lenses are easily configured via Baumer GAPI, Baumer neoAPI, or third party software to allow the focus and the aperture to be dynamically matched to the applications. External accessories and associated cabling become completely unnecessary. Read more ›    
CoaXPress-over-Fiber: Gaining momentum with camera maker adoption
In an effort to extend the benefits of CoaXPress to applications where traditional copper coaxial cables are reaching a ceiling in terms of speed, total bandwidth, weight and distance, Euresys is now promoting the new CoaXPress-over-Fiber Bridge protocol. Originally developed by Euresys / Sensor to Image, CoaXPress-over-Fiber is the result of the cooperation between the members of the CoaXPress Workgroup. The new standard has now been formally adopted and published by the Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA) as a further enhancement to the widely adopted CoaXPress interface standard, allowing for broad industry adoption.

New lenses for 1.2" sensors with high imaging performance and image position stability
Schneider-Kreuznach introduces the new, robust Xenon-Jade lens family for 1.2" sensors.
The five lenses with a speed of 2.8 and focal lengths of 12/16/25/35/50 mm are suitable for pixel sizes down to 2.4µm and are therefore well suited for use in combination with Sony's IMX253, 420/425 and 530/540 sensors.
The lenses already offer particularly good imaging performance at open aperture - with either visible or IR illumination. Read more › 

Autonomous optical angle measurement for press brakes
Vision Components provides powerful OEM laser profilers for checking the angular accuracy in sheet metal bending press brakes. The VCnano3D-Z 3D line sensors reach measuring rates up to 400 Hz and a typical accuracy of <±0.1°. They can be directly connected to the machine's PLC for real-time control of the contact pressure, in order to boost productivity and efficiency of press brakes. Delem, a leading manufacturer of controls for sheet metal machines, has already completed the integration of the laser profilers in its controllers. Read more ›
