 Epix Logo Silicon Video Cameras

The SILICON VIDEO® monochrome 643M and color 643C cameras provide 640 by 480 resolution at 211 frames per second (fps). Reducing the number of lines to 2 allows frame rates up to 26,636 fps. Fast frame rates, global shutter, asynchronous reset, and shutter speeds as short as 10 microseconds (1/100,000th of a second) provide sharp images of high-speed motion. Example applications include high-speed inspection, particle tracking, kinematics, collision studies, sports analysis, ballistics, and plant or animal motion analysis. Images can be captured at fast frame rates and can then be played-back at slow display rates to reveal previously undetected details. Individual frames can be extracted from a sequence for further analysis or measurement.

The rugged aluminum camera case is 48.5mm high by 38.4mm wide by 20.8mm deep. Each side of the case has two M3-0.50 tapped holes for attaching the ¼-20 tripod adapter or for mounting. The flexible, category 5e, shielded RJ-45 interface cable provides image data transfer, camera control, and camera power while allowing camera positioning in tight spaces. Multiple cabling options are available, see the SILICON® VIDEO Cable page for more details.

This progressive scan camera connects to the PCI Express bus thru the PIXCI® SI1 (one camera),PIXCI® SI2 (two camera), or PIXCI® SI4 (four camera) imaging board. In addition to providing power, camera control, and data transfer, the PIXCI® SI boards have a trigger input and a strobe output to synchronize external equipment.

Also available is the SV643 camera with an EPIX® imaging computer system that can be configured to capture for a specified frame rate and time period.

Matrix Vision BlueCOUGAR-XD-104D

MATRIX VISION introduces the new Dual Gigabit Ethernet camera family mvBlueCOUGAR-XD - the smallest in its class. The large, powerful FPGA allows preprocessing steps inside the camera directly to reduce the CPU load of the host system. For the first time, it is possible to use a high-speed-buffer mode which writes images faster in the camera's memory as they are transferred. The mvBleCOUGAR-XD-1040D has frame rates up to 600fps (@VGA) and IMX 174 Sensor with 73dB Dynamic Range.

TroubleBox is a portable, high speed digital video recording system designed to significantly improve the accuracy of diagnostic analysis and maintenance operations in high speed industrial manufacturingapplications.Troublebox can be used either as a diagnostic tool, to film and review areas of a high speed process, enabling perfect machine setup and system synchronisation, or alternatively as a 'watchdog' continuously monitoring a process waiting for a predefined image trigger to occur. Through the capturing of high speed events, users are able to closely examine a sequence, either frame by frame or using slow motion playback in order to fully understand their high speed processes.
