POSTED 04/07/2014

New board-mount models allow greater flexibility in cramped installation spacesBaumer further develops the MX camera series by adding the fast USB 3.0 interface and additional performance features, increasing added value for users in industrial image processing installations or medical and laboratory technology. Diverse application possibilities, easy USB connection and maximum flexibility in minimal installation Fast, Easy, Flexible: USB 3.0 Board Level Camerasspaces characterize the ten new camera models.

MX Series models are available with resolutions from VGA to 4 megapixels and high performance Sony CCD and CMOSIS sensors. Fast motion sequences are detected at up to 160 frames per second and global shutter sensors in monochrome and color. The MX Series' proven large range of functions, including sequencer or storable user sets and matching Baumer GAPI SDK v.2.2 software, round out the benefits of the new USB 3.0 board level cameras.

All models are certified in accordance with the new USB3 Vision standard, making them compatible with software libraries for industrial image processing such as NI LabVIEW, MVTec HALCON or Matrox Imaging Library. Plug-and-play functionality enables quick and easy camera integration. The USB 3.0 interface allows for a single cable solution for data transmission and power supply.

The small, remote 28.5 x 28.5 mm sensor head is connected to the system printed circuit board by flexprint with only an 8.2 mm overall height. This allows the utmost flexibility in camera integration where space is very limited.
