Vieworks VC series: High speed CMOS cameras
15 Jun 2012
Vieworks have added high speed CMOS cameras to their VC series. Depending on the camera resolution, they provide image rates of between 64 and 337 full images per second using a range of CMOS global shutter sensors from a number of different manufacturers.
At present, the product range comprises cameras with resolutions of 2, 3 and 4 megapixels. A 12 megapixel camera with up to 240 full images/s is also under developement. The Vieworks VC camera series is available with either C or F mount lens connections and both offer numerous functions such as dead pixel correction, test image output, an internal temperature sensor and dark image correction which can be updated in the field.
The cameras are also equipped with an LED status display to assist the user during startup or to identify the trigger situation. The output of the camera is either 8 or 10 bit with 2, 4, 8 or 10 taps. The Vieworks camera series nicely complements the STEMMER IMAGING camera range, adding fast CMOS cameras and extends our already broad portfolio even further.
