At LASER World of PHOTONIOCS 2017, LASER COMPONENTS will present a new generation of line laser modules for machine vision. The M18 threaded MV18 module is the latest addition to the successful MV series, while existing models like MVnano, MVpico and MVfemto have been re-engineered for better functionality and flexibility.
Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc. (PIRT) recently introduced the OEM version of its LineCam12, an affordable, indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) linescan camera that operates from 0.4 to 1.7 µm in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) and visible spectrum. Compact, with USB3 Vision™ and Camera Link digital outputs, the camera features a 1024 x 1 pixel format with a 12.5 µm pitch; it can be powered by USB3.0 in most applications
Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies® Company, recently introduced the Fetura+™ Advanced Zoom Lens enabling high speed and reliable optical performance for the machine vision and inspection markets. Fetura+ features a unique linear rail design coupled with precision optics to enable it to travel through the 12.5:1 zoom range in less than one second. Due to this unique design, Fetura+ offers a service life in excess of one million cycles and delivers exacting repeatability in any orientation.
Coherent released a new series of StingRay µFocus (Micro Focus) lasers, or laser line generators, designed to enable the detection of smaller features in machine vision applications based on triangulation. StingRay µFocus (Micro Focus) lasers feature a linewidth that is 40% smaller than standard Coherent StingRay products (at the same working distance), and can achieve focused linewidths as small as 20 µm, thus providing increased spatial resolution and the ability to discern finer details.
Xenics will attend SPIE DCS 2016 with a host of new developments, among them the first performance results of a family of high-resolution SWIR line-scan arrays that work up to 400 KHz of line rate. These arrays serve space applications that require high resolution line-scan arrays as well as medical (3D SD-OCT) and industrial applications that require high line rates. . Xenics will exhibit in Booth 523 at the Baltimore Convention Center.

The compact camera features a 1024 x 1 pixel format with a 12.5 µm pitch and has two digital outputs, USB3 Vision™ and Camera Link; it can also be powered by USB3.0 in most applications. This is the only USB3 Vision SWIR camera currently available, allowing for easy integration into new or existing machine vision and spectroscopic systems.
Adimec plans to showcase its portfolio pf vision products and technologies that are optimized for the global security market at the 2016 SPIE Defense and Security Syymposium event in Baltimore, MD. The company will display and discuss the enhancements made to the TMX series of rugged full HD and beyond COTS cameras to provide full motion video in daylight on airborne payloads, long-range observations systems, and other sensor system architectures.
