USB 2.0 camera - mvBlueFOX

mvBlueFOX - CCD & CMOS USB 2.0 cameras
  • Compact industrial CCD & CMOS cameras with USB 2.0
  • High quality sensors from VGA up to 5 Mpixels
  • 8 Mpixels memory
  • PLC-type real-time sequencer (HRTC)
  • FPGA on-board hardware LUT 10 bits to 8 bits
  • Up to 12 bits ADC
  • CMOS sensor -200w with 110 dB high dynamic range (HDR)

The mvBlueFOX is a compact industrial CCD & CMOS camera solution for any PC with USB ports. A superior image quality makes it suited for most applications. The driver in combination with the FPGA represents a perfect team which reduces the PC load to a minimum during preprocessings like binning. The standard Hi-Speed USB interface guarantees an easy integration without any additional interface board.

Drivers and applications for Windows 7, 8.1, 10 (mvIMPACT Acquire)

Since version 2.10.1 of mvIMPACT Acquire the "Merge Modules for mvIMPACT Acquire" are available as a separate download.
For this reason the installation packages are smaller now. The Merge Modules are needed for private setup routines, which shall include mvIMPACT Acquire drivers. More details are available in the mvIMPACT Acquire manuals.

Drivers for ARM based embedded boards (mvIMPACT Acquire)

Requirements for the usage of the ARM driver:

- libc (glibc, eglibc or similar) version >= 2.15
- gcc version >= 4.6.3
- ARM hardware with armv7-a architecture
or newer, which supports the Thumb-2 instruction set

For Raspberry Pi (armv6):

Additional packages for NeuroCheck, LabVIEW, DirectShow, VisionPro and Halcon

Since version 1.10.69, a DirectShow® driver is part of the mvIMPACT Acquire installation package.

Since version 1.10.85, an interface to VisionPro® (Cognex) will be installed automatically when installing an MSI based mvIMPACT Acquire driver package.

Since version 1.12.39, an interface to NeuroCheck 6 for the families mvBlueFOX and mvBlueCOUGAR will be installed automatically.

mvIMPACT Acquire bindings for HALCON are available on MVTec's website: http://www.halcon.de/download/
