GigE Vision Dual Gigabit Ethernet industrial camera - mvBlueCOUGAR-XD

mvBlueCOUGAR-XD - CCD & CMOS Dual GigE Vision cameras
  • Extreme compact industrial camera series with Dual Gigabit Ethernet
  • CCD & CMOS high quality sensors up to 12.4 megapixels
  • Gray scale and color versions
  • Hardware preprocessing on-board (FPGA)
  • Highest resolution ADC (CCD)
  • Image memory 256 MB

MATRIX VISION introduces the Dual Gigabit Ethernet camera family mvBlueCOUGAR-XD - the smallest in its class. The large, powerful FPGA allows preprocessing steps inside the camera directly to reduce the CPU load of the host system. For the first time, it is possible to use a high-speed-buffer mode which writes images faster in the camera's memory as they are transferred.

Your advantages with the mvBlueCOUGAR-XD

FPGA

Huge camera FPGA reduces CPU load of your host system.

Huge camera FPGA with a lot of space for features. We add new features easily via free of charge firmware updates.

Bildspeicher

You won't lose an image with the internal image memory again.

The image memory buffers images and enables useful features like Record / Playback, Pretrigger as well as  Sequence recording using parameter sets.

Timer und Counter

For counting and triggering of events, counters are a handy feature for your application.

You can generate output signals variably, control illumination systems, synchronize several cameras, and a lot more.

Große Filterauswahl

The suitable filter for your lighting situation or environmental condition.

You can choose between daylight cut (Cold Mirror), IR cut (Hot Mirror) or glass (without filter) filter, which can be intergrated.
