JAI PULNiX New High-Speed Machine Vision Camera Features Gigabit Ethernet
JAI PULNiX’s newest dual-tap AccuPiXEL offering, the TM-6740GE machine vision camera boasts up to 200 frames per second at full resolution, and partial scan and binning modes for up to 3205 frames per second. This 1/3" VGA-format progressive scan camera is based on the state-of-the-art Kodak KAI-0340 CCD imager. The camera’s 640(H) x 480(V) resolution imager has 7.4 ìm square pixels. It also features both analog and gigabit Ethernet output that is 8-bit or 10-bit software selectable. The video is optimized by JAI PULNiX’s exclusive, patent-pending built-in look-up table, (8-bit only) which permits maximum dynamic range control. The TM-6740GE features full asynchronous reset with electronic shutter up to 1/64,000 sec or pulse-width exposure control, which allows triggered image capture and processing.

The TM-6740GE’s integrated API and dual-tap AccuPiXEL GUI allow the user to be up and running in minutes. The GUI gives the user control of all camera settings and acquisition modes, including gain, A/D reference, partial scan, and binning. Changes in the camera’s acquisition modes trigger automatic updates to the API for easy image acquisition. CPU usage is only a few percent, thanks to the TCP/IP offload engine.

All of this high performance is available in a miniature 50.8 x 50.8 x 85.1 mm housing. Other features include automatic dual-channel compensation, and a built-in pattern generator. Applications for the TM-6740GE include machine vision, medical imaging, intelligent transportation systems, high-definition graphics, gauging, character recognition, robotics, and surveillance. This camera is available in a monochrome format (TM-6740GE) or with a Bayer CFA (TMC-6740GE).
