Does your application require multiple images at differing magnifications? Or do you capture objects of varying size? For applications like these, The Imaging Source has developed its GigE monochrome zoom cameras. With an integrated zoom lens, iris and focus, these cameras are ideally suited for applications such as component inspection or intelligent traffic surveillance (ITS). The sensor ensures optimal sharpness and light sensitivity.
The Imaging Source Zoom and Autofocus Cameras
Cameras with automatic zoom and focus capabilites
The Imaging Source has developed its GigE and USB 3.0 autofocus cameras to meet the demands of applications that require different magnifications or the ability to capture objects of varying sizes. With an integrated zoom lens, iris and focus, these cameras are the ideal solution for component inspection or intelligent traffic surveillance (ITS) applications. The software-controlled autofocus produces sharp images despite varying working distances.
Camera parameters such as white balance, gain and exposure time can be adjusted automatically or manually with the SDK or end user software. In addition, the sensors have performance-enhancing features such as binning, windowing and high-speed readout.
Resons to choose the zoom and autofocus cameras
In some machine vision scenarios, maintaining an accurate working distance is virtually impossible. For these applications, The Imaging Source offers its USB autofocus monochrome cameras. With their software-driven one-push autofocus, they produce sharp images despite varying working distances. Highly sensitive Aptina CMOS sensors deliver excellent image quality, even in low light conditions.
Camera parameters such as gain and exposure time can be adjusted automatically or manually with the included imaging software. The camera's compact dimensions enable easy integration into existing applications.
