Colored Glass And Coated Filters For Machine Vision
Colored Glass And Coated Filters For Machine Vision The importance of selecting the right optical filter for the application at hand cannot be overstated. Several different types of filters exist with the common goal of improving or changing the image of an object that’s under inspection, but each has its own set of benefits and limitations. This white paper provides a guideline on which filter you should use as it relates to the application you’re working in and the unique problems...  Continue Reading...
Short Wave Infrared Enhances Machine Vision
Short Wave Infrared Enhances Machine Vision SWIR (short wave infrared) imaging is especially useful for measuring, monitoring, and controlling the reliability and quality control aspects of manufacturing and industrial processes.  Continue Reading...
GigE Vision for Real-Time Machine Vision
GigE Vision for Real-Time Machine Vision The acceptance and use of Gigabit Ethernet technology for industrial digital imaging applications continues to grow. The increased variety and capability of cameras to leverage this powerful interface, combined with planned updates to the AIA (Automated Imaging Association) GigE Vision® interface standards makes GigE Vision based imaging more robust and more ideal than ever for real-time machine vision applications.  Continue Reading...
Machine Vision for Factory Automation Many key tasks in the manufacture of products, including inspection, orientation, identification, and assembly, require the use of visual techniques. Human vision and response, however, can be slow and tend to be error-prone either due to boredom or fatigue. Replacing human inspection with machine vision can go far in automating factory operation, but implementers need to carefully match machine vision options with application requirements.  Continue Reading...

Machine Vision Camera With USB3 Vision: Firefly® Machine Vision Camera With USB3 Vision: Firefly®

FLIR’s Firefly® camera is designed to combine machine vision features with the power of deep learning inference on-camera. With its integrated Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ 2 Vision Processing Unit (VPU) users can deploy a trained neural network directly onto the camera and achieve inference on the edge. Its small size and low power are ideal for portable devices, and it provides excellent imaging with the latest global shutter CMOS sensors.

High-Performance Machine Vision Camera: Blackfly S Series High-Performance Machine Vision Camera: Blackfly S Series

FLIR’s Blackfly S cameras are compact, machine vision cameras designed to produce exact images for acceleration of application development. With features for both automatic and manual control over image capture and on-camera pre-processing, these cameras offer support for a wide range of operating systems and hosts system hardware architectures.

Oryx 10GigE Camera Family Oryx 10GigE Camera Family

The Oryx 10GigE camera family of machine vision cameras offers the advantages of the latest sensors by supporting transfer speeds up to 10 Gbit/s, enabling the capture of 12-bit images at over 60 FPS at 4K resolution. The Oryx 10BASE-T interface provides reliable image transfer at cable lengths over 50 meters on inexpensive CAT6A. or greater than 30 m on CAT5e.

FLEXPOINT® Machine Vision Lasers FLEXPOINT® Machine Vision Lasers

LASER COMPONENTS designs and manufactures FLEXPOINT® MVsquare laser modules to fulfill specific requirements in industrial image processing applications. Thanks to its rectangular housing (L x W x H: 65 x 15 x 15 mm), this square module solution is specifically designed for fast and simple assembly in series production.

Highest Throughput Streaming Camera For Machine Vision Applications: Phantom® S990 Highest Throughput Streaming Camera For Machine Vision Applications: Phantom® S990

The Phantom® S990 is Vision Research’s highest throughput streaming camera available on the market designed specifically for machine vision applications. This imager combines Phantom premium sensor image quality, outstanding high speed technology, and record breaking direct data transfer speed to provide 9 Mpx at up to 938 fps and almost 9 Gpx/sec. The camera streams directly into PCI Express frame grabbers with up to 16 standard CXP6 channels, and is Gen-i-Cam compliant.

FLEXPOINT Machine Vision Lasers: MV Series FLEXPOINT Machine Vision Lasers: MV Series

LASER COMPONENTS designs and manufactures laser modules to fulfill specific requirements in industrial image processing applications -- a range of line lasers with a homogeneous power distribution generally used in metrology, as well as high power lasers and special housing units.

The ColdVision series from SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging is composed of an extensive array of light sources, fiber optic guides, and accessories designed to work seamlessly with each other for illumination purposes in machine vision and microscopy applications. 

FLEXPOINT Machine Vision Lasers: MVstereo FLEXPOINT Machine Vision Lasers: MVstereo

A prerequisite for 3-D stereo image processing requires the clear allocation of pixels in both camera images and in an image comparison. However, this is only possible on clearly textured surfaces, making it nearly impossible to clearly allocate monochrome surfaces with little or repetitive texture. Markers, or random patterns on the surface, are needed for assistance in the measuring process. LASER COMPONENTS now offers the FLEXPOINT MVstereo, a random pattern projector with 33,000 dots for 3-D stereo image processing.
