The new Optronis CR-S3500 Sprinter slow-motion camera features an integrated SSD data back-up capability. This speeds up data transfer of recorded sequences for analysis on a PC by 6 times compared to the use of a GigE interface for the transfer.
Six new models featuring 2 and 5 megapixel resolution ON Semiconductor Python CMOS sensors have been added to the Genie Nano range of GigE Vision industrial cameras from Teledyne DALSA. Using burst acquisition and patent pending TurboDrive technology, these cameras can operate at much higher frame rates with faster data transmission than normally possible using GigE Vision. This means they can be used in faster applications.
The new TrueChrome Metrics camera from STEMMER IMAGING provides fully integrated digital image capture and measurement for micro and macro scientific and industrial imaging applications with no need for a PC.
In March 2015, in the Indian Ocean, 200 km west of Shark Bay, Western Australia, the combined teams at Western Australian Museum and Curtin University, lowered their remote operated vehicles into the sea. Armed with a variety of cameras and sensors, the aim was to explore a pair of shipwrecks from WW2; the HMAS Sydney II and the HSK Kormoran, and reveal a deeper understanding of why they now sit on the seabed.
In collaboration with STEMMER IMAGING, Erichsen has developed an imaging module for routine sheet metal inspections according to ISO 16630 in order to further automate the inspection process, to eliminate the 'human factor' and to achieve a dramatic improvement in documentation. These measures are the foundation for Industry 4.0 concepts and cloud applications.
