December 1, 2019 -- Mikrotron will introduce a suite of cameras at the SPIE Photonics West, taking place February 5-7, 2019, in San Francisco, CA, at the Moscone Center.

Taking center stage for Mikrotron will be its EoSens 1.1CXP2 camera based on the CoaXPress V2.0 interface. Capable of delivering up to 3,600 fps at 1.1-megapixel resolution, the camera transmits approximately 30 Gbit/s over 4 channels with 12 Gbit/s each, making it an imaging solution for demanding applications including ball grid inspection, robotics, microscopy, PIV measurements and melt pool monitoring, among others. It is contained in a metal housing that measures 80mm x 80mm x 53mm with a feature set highlighted by gamma and FPN correction, noise reduction, sequencer and GPID . In addition, its sensitivity of 20V/lux@550nm achieves high-contrast, detailed images in industrial areas where lighting is limited.

With fiber-based cameras finding their way into applications requiring extended cable lengths and resistance to EMI, Mikrotron plans to showcase its new EoSens 3FIBER (3MP) and EoSens 4FIBER (4MP) cameras at SPIE Photonics West. Equipped with fiber optical interfaces, both cameras allow for fast transmission up to 300 meters (985 feet) to offer a cost-effective solution for applications with high interference potential or longer transmission distances. A feature of the new cameras is a MTP/MPO fiber connector that ensures that they do not disconnect even during the fast or sudden movements often experienced in industrial, transportation, military or surveillance environments.

Boasting mechanical shock resistance of 100g, the EoSens Quad 1.1 high-speed recording camera from Mikrotron is designed to operate in intense shock and vibration environments, for example, automotive crash testing and manufacturing troubleshooting. The Quad 1.1 has a 14.9μm 10-bit pixel resulting in sensitivity for both mono and color models. Two analog and four digital I/O inputs enable recording video and sensor data in total sync. The camera is available in both C-Mount and Nikon FG-Mount giving users more lens choices. VisualMARC, the included control and player software, has all basic and extended functions required to set up Quad 1.1 cameras for recording and exporting videos.
