NIT STARTS SHIPPING ITS MAGIC SENSORS TO MAIN CAMERA MANUFACTURERS

Imaging Development Systems introduces a new camera that incorporates a NIT MAGIC CMOS sensor. IDS has chosen to work closely with New Imaging Technologies (Evry, France), and has finally selected the MD1-10-B Logarithmic sensor for the design of its latest high-dynamic-range (HDR) uEye camera. This true logarithmic sensor developed by NIT uses an array of photodiodes operated in photovoltaic mode. In most logarithmic imager designs, linear photo current passes through a MOS transistor whose exponential characteristic transforms the photo current into a logarithmic-like voltage output signal. In NIT’s MAGIC approach, the array of photodiodes is operated in photovoltaic mode and the open-circuit voltage across the p/n junction is proportional to the exact and pure logarithmic value of the incident light intensity. IDS used the NIT imager for machine-vision camera applications. NIT also provides the MCD1-10-BW, an analog camera module that uses the HDR imager. The MCD1-10-BW modules are equipped with the MD1-10-B Log sensor which provides extraordinary dynamic range performance greater than 120 dB. MD1-10-B provides a pure logarithmic response without noticeable fixed pattern noise. In addition to the extraordinary wide dynamic range, the MD1-10-B from NIT is immune to light variations, which occurs in typical outdoor sceneries. www.new-imaging-technologies.com

EDMUND OPTICS OFFERS TECHSPEC NEAR UV ACHROMATIC LENSES 

Edmund Optics (Barrington, N.J.) introduces its new TECHSPEC Near UV Achromatic Lenses. These high-performance lenses provide excellent transmission in the 345-700 nm range. They are specifically designed to minimize the spot size for polychromatic illumination in the 345-550 nm region. The TECHSPEC Near UV Achromatic Lenses are perfect for use in fluorescence applications. They are ideal for use in simple focusing of common UV light sources, including Mercury Arc Lamps, UV LEDs and Tripled Nd: YAG lasers. TECHSPEC Near UV Achromatic Lenses feature a low-cost, simple cemented design and offer an excellent alternative to air-spaced doublets and triplets in the UV region. The lenses provide greater than 90 percent transmission from 360-700 nm and supply greater than 50 percent transmission at 334 nm with no spherical aberration or coma. To accommodate a wide variety of integration options, TECHSPEC Near UV Achromatic Lenses are available in 12.5 mm diameter models in 25 mm, 30 mm, 40 mm, 50 mm and 60 mm EFL and in 25 mm diameter models in 50 mm, 60 mm, 75 mm, 100 mm and 125 mm EFL. www.edmundoptics.com

VISION COMPONENTS ULTRACOMPACT MACHINE VISION SYSTEMS: VCSBC4012 NANO AND VC4012 NANO

Vision Components (Ettlingen, Germany) released the intelligent board camera VCSBC4012 Nano and the new VC4012 Nano camera line, which also is designed for applications with limited installation space. Measuring only 40 x 65 mm and 80 x 45 x 20 mm respectively, these Smart Cameras may be the smallest vision systems in the world. This high degree of miniaturization was reached by populating both sides of the board with components. The cost-efficient intelligent cameras feature a CMOS sensor with a 5 megapixel resolution. Thanks to the CMOS technology, the Nano cameras are optimally suited for use in high-speed applications. With a 400 MHz processor and a computing power of 3,200 MIPS, both Nano cameras are high-performance, easy-to-integrate image processing systems—like all intelligent cameras from Vision Components, they render external PCs unnecessary. Basic equipment includes 4 MB Flash EPROM and 64 MB DRAM for program and data storage, which can be optionally extended to 128 MB. The cameras feature a 100 MBit Ethernet interface and an external trigger input to enables jitter-free recording even at high reading frequencies. The Ethernet interface allows for video output on a PC. Two digital inputs and four outputs ensure integration into existing automation environments. www.vision-components.com
