Two For All Challenges: VisiLine Series with Sony IMX174 and IMX249 CMOS Sensors Went Into Series Production

POSTED 06/12/2015

The new GigE camera models VLG-23, VLG-24 and VLG-23.I of the VisiLine series for versatile use in broad fields of application.Global shutter sensors IMX174 and IMX249 of the latest Sony CMOS generation are now integrated in six new models of the Baumer VisiLine cameras – both in mono and color and IMX174 even in an IP 65/67 rated housing. Thanks to 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and up to 53 fps these cameras convince by their excellent price-performance ration in the 2 megapixel range.

The cameras provide a high dynamic range of more than 70 dB, an excellent signal/noise ratio and yet very high sensitivity. They are ideally suited for any industry where stable image evaluation goes together with highest demands on image quality even in dim light. The robust VisiLine IP 65/67 cameras forgo an additional housing for lens and camera protection against harsh industrial conditions, as often required in robotics or automotive. This implies significant benefits and cost reduction in installation and inventory. Industry-capable M12 standard connectors are compatible to a broad range of cables by many different manufacturers.

Thanks to these six new camera models in the 2 megapixel camera segment, many different variants are available with both adequate CMOS and commonly used ICX274 Sony CCD sensors.
