LX Series CMOS Cameras

POSTED 09/03/2014

rong>High-resolution CMOS cameras feature up to 20 megapixel and Dual GigE

New camera models allow substantial performance upgrades to existing equipment in the field

LX Series Cameras from BaumerBaumer announces the new LX series expanding our portfolio with cameras including high-resolution CMOSIS sensors and Dual GigE interface. They are ideal for applications with demanding requirements of high-definition quality in image acquisition at high throughput. The LX series masters such tasks with 8, 12
and 20 megapixel resolutions and the 240 MB/s bandwidth of Dual GigE interface.

8 and 12 megapixel models utilize the proven CMOSIS 5.5 μm pixel design. Thus the new LX technology easily upgrades existing CCD-based systems to provide excellent sensitivity and high frame rates.

Furthermore, the upgrade eliminates costs for new optics. Besides ultra-high resolution, the 20 MP model
with 6.4 μm pixel structure and extremely low noise of only 8 e- provides a very high dynamic range of 66 dB.
Such excellent image quality allows for more precise and reliable image evaluation. All models ensure
outstanding sensitivity for reliable image acquisition even in high-dynamic processes.

Thanks to standard-compliant Dual GigE interface, the smallest 20 MP GigE Vision camera currently
available enables cost-efficient system integration. Compared to single GigE cameras, the 240 MB/s
bandwidth provides twice the frame rate or half the transmission time. In the application, this will significantly
speed up reaction or inspection times. The LX series adds a big plus on flexibility thanks to HDR (High
Dynamic Range), Power over Ethernet (PoE), Multi/IO and modular lens mount. The cameras are ideally
suited for demanding inspections of PCBs, semi-conductors, surfaces or in 2D/3D measuring technology.
