FLIR introduces GeniCam and GigE Vision compliant hi-res camera
12 July 2010
FLIR has delivered what it believes is a world first: a 640x480 focal plane array, uncooled infrared camera that is fully compliant with both GeniCam and GigE Vision protocols. This combination makes the A615 high resolution, high frame rate camera instantly ready for quick and easy network installation, enabling the user to take full advantage of plug-and-play with machine vision software from National Instruments, Cognex, Matrox, MVTec, Stemmer Imaging and more.
The introduction of the fixed-mounted A615 gives manufacturers and system integrators more reason to choose infrared over a visible light camera for high-end automated inspection and process control. Compact and affordable, the A615 comes complete with built-in Gigabit Ethernet. The camera’s focal plane array provides over 300,000 measurement points, and its ability to capture the finest image detail and temperature differences is also enhanced by its <50mK sensitivity.
The high radiometric video frame rate of 50Hz on the FLIR A615 can be greater enhanced by the windowing function. This function allows the camera’s processing engine to reduce the window size to offer greater processing speeds. At 640x240 100Hz can be achieved and at 640x120, 200Hz.
Compliance with GigEVision and GenICam standards allows the A615 to be integrated with a wide variety of similarly compliant equipment and is supported by a choice of third party software. Trigger and synchronisation capabilities enable it to control, or be controlled by a host of other types of equipment. And when used with wireless and fibre optic line adaptors this high performing camera can be used almost anywhere, including over long distances.
