New camera family with GigE Vision or USB3 Vision interface
3 Sep 2013
Nine Mako models with the GigE Vision interface and resolutions ranging from VGA up to 4 megapixels are currently available. The range includes CCD sensors as well as CMOS sensors with Global Shutter, including CMOS varieties with increased near-infrared sensitivity. Power can be supplied either using the Power over Ethernet interface or from an external 24V supply using a Hirose connector.
The Mako serie features four CCD models: Mako G-032 B/C deliver 102 frames per second in VGA resolution by using ICX424 HAD sensors, the Mako G-125 B/C cameras supply 30 frames per second in SXGA resolution, based on a ICX445 ExViewHAD sensor. For the CMOS sensor based models, versions with 2 and 4 Megapixel resolution in colour and monochrome as well as a NIR version are currently available. The VGA CMOS camera Mako G-030B/C is announced to be produced starting from end of this year.
The new USB3 Vision standard has been eagerly anticipated, with improved data transfer rates of up to 400 Mbyte/s, and no need for a frame grabber. Mako USB3 Vision models will also be available with VGA resolution as well as 2 and 4 megapixel CMOS sensors from CMOSIS (CMV2000 and CMV4000). There will also be corresponding NIR-sensitive variations. According to AVT, prototypes of these USB3 Vision cameras will be available end of 2013 and the production is planned to start in the first quarter 2014.
