Common machine vision interface platform for IR cameras

02 January 2013

Integration of infrared imaging into machine vision applications has been simplified with the introduction by Xenics of a common GigE/CameraLink/CoaXPress modular platform for its range of infrared cameras.

The interface module can be used for applications such as such as inspection, identifying and measuring parts, pick-and-place and assembly, high-speed sorting, failure analysis and hot-spot detection. It provides a standard interface for a wide range of Xenics camera families, covering the full IR wavelength range from SWIR to LWIR - including thermography.

The camera module can be connected to a GigE (with and without PoE), CameraLink or CoaXPress interface, or standard analogue video, in which case camera settings and modes can be controlled via RS232.

This new approach is said to bring modularity and flexibility and easy integration for industrial use, as well as for applications such as traffic control and medical equipment.
