Excellent Image Quality at High Speeds: Revolutionary Cameras Offer Powerful CMOS Sensors and Dual GigE

HXG Cameras from BaumerIn response to market demand for high-resolution cameras that deliver excellent image quality at high speeds, Baumer has introduced their revolutionary new HXG cameras that combine the latest CMOS sensor technology with a dual GigE interface and PoE (Power over Ethernet).

Available with 2 and 4 megapixel resolutions, Baumer HXG cameras reliably transfer more than 100 frames/s. Dual GigE technology allows the cameras to double GigE bandwidth, achieving a bandwidth of 240 MB/s with all the advantages of Gigabit Ethernet. If one GigE line becomes disconnected, the camera will continue to operate on the remaining GigE line without requiring a power-down or reset.

To reduce integration costs,the camera's standard interface permits simple, flexible integration into existing systems and supports cable lengths of up to 100 meters. This combination results in short inspection times and makes the new Baumer cameras the fastest series of GigE cameras currently on the market.

High resolutions of up to 2048 x 2048 pixels ensure the desired product quality by optically monitoring even the tiniest details. The Global Shutter sensor from CMOSIS with Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) guarantees sharp images and low readout noise for precise measurements.

More responsive than cameras with CCD sensors, Baumer HXG cameras deliver high sensitivity and excellent image quality, which reduces measuring times and increases throughput and production capacity. The new models are available in either monochrome and color or just monochrome for the near infra-red range (NIR).

The Baumer Group is a leading international manufacturer of sensors and system solutions for factory and process automation. In 2011 the innovative family-owned company employed about 2,500 people worldwide in 36 locations and 18 countries. The long lasting success is built on high customer focus as well as the innovative and diversified product range of the product segments Sensor Solutions, Motion Control, Vision Technologies, Process Instrumentation, and Gluing Systems.
