Baumer Machine Vision SX Cameras

For industrial vision applications requiring 1 to 2 megapixel resolutions at frame rates up to 120 frames per second (FPS), Baumer has introduced the new SX cameras that feature Kodak's progressive scan, interline CCD image sensors with Quad-Tap technology.

Offering resolutions of 1024 x 1024 pixels, the 1 megapixel camera can achieve speeds of 120 fps depending upon the number of output taps used. The 2 megapixel camera offers horizontal and vertical resolutions of 1600 x 1200 pixels, respectively, and can achieve speeds up to 68 fps. All SX cameras are compact, measuring just 52 x 52 x 54 mm, and feature robust electronics.

The digital interface for Baumer SX cameras is CameraLink Base. This industrial interface provides high throughput of data with little latency time. To simplify the integration of the cameras into existing operating software, Baumer provides a modern SDK containing Baumer-GAPI, a generic API, many code examples, and programming documentation.

The Baumer Group is a leading international manufacturer of sensors and system solutions for factory and process automation. In 2009 the innovative family-owned company employed about 2,000 people worldwide in 35 locations and 18 countries.
