In order to meet an even wider spectrum of customer requirements, Basler introduces all aviator area scan camera models with a GigE interface. These new cameras combine great image quality, speed, and leading edge Basler GigE technology in an ideal way. They complement the already well-established aviator models, which have a Camera Link interface.
Basler aviator GigE cameras are available with resolutions of 1, 2 (4:3 and HDTV), and 4 megapixels in monochrome or color. The GigE interface offers reliable data transport at over 100 frames per second at 1 megapixel resolution (100 MBytes/sec) over distances of up to 100 meters.
The cameras use Kodak's latest CCD sensor generation with four tap readout technology. These sensors are up to four times faster than standard CCD sensors of the same resolution. As a result of Basler's extensive Kodak sensor experience, the Basler aviator offers excellent tap balancing and homogenous imaging results.
Equipped with a compact 62 mm x 62 mm x 57 mm housing and features such as progressive readout and global shutter technology, aviator GigE cameras are well suited for a variety of application areas including factory automation, semiconductor and electronics inspection, medical imaging, and intelligent traffic systems (ITS).
Series production will start in Q1/2011.
