High speed 12 megapixel industrial camera

18 Dec 2013

The new Vieworks VC-12M-65 industrial camera combines high resolution with fast frame rates. Featuring the latest 12 megapixel (4096 × 3072) global shutter CMOS sensor from CMOSIS, these monochrome or colour cameras produce high quality images at frame rates up to 65 fps for applications such as PCB inspection, automated optical inspection machines, 3D inspection, scientific imaging and many others.

The VC-12M-65 is the latest addition to the VC series of cameras and is equipped with either a CameraLink (model VC-12MC-65) or CoaXPress (model VC- 12MX-65) interface. These cameras are characterised by their outstanding noise reduction technology for high quality imaging and offer not only high-speed image processing capabilities but also precise exposure control.

Increased frame rate due to flexible Multi-ROI function

The fast frame rate of up to 65 fps at full resolution can be increased even further using the flexible Multi-ROI (region of interest) function to optimize between resolution and speed. A frame rate of 377 fps can be achieved at a resolution of 4096 × 500 pixels. The Multi-ROI facility allows up to thirty two regions to be defined on the sensor array.

Flat field correction improves image uniformity

The VC-12M-65 features flat field correction to improve image uniformity resulting from uneven lighting. The colour version of the camera has auto white balance control which is applied to the entire pixel data.
