soon a corresponding revision with alternative components will be available for the UBS3 cameras of the camera series mvBlueFOX3-2 and mvBlueFOX3-5M, thus easing the delivery situation, despite the still difficult component situation.

We offer the redesign as an additional revision parallel to the current products. It was important for us to ensure compatibility with the current products.

If you want to check the compatibility with your application, please contact our sales department. We will be glad to support you.

With kind regards,

High resolution industrial stereo camera

3D stereo camera

For demanding 3D applications

The product page of our new 3D stereo camera BVS 3D-RV1 with its 12 MPixel sensors is online; the 3D stereo camera is available now.

The special features

  • High application flexibility due to GigE Vision interface

  • Performs even in harsh environments due to IP54 protected housing

  • Enables highly accurate 3D image processing through 12 MPix resolution of 3D data and 2D images

  • Optimally adaptable to your workspace through adjustable lenses on cameras and projector

Application examples

Container virtualization using Docker

mvBlueCOUGAR-X, mvBlueCOUGAR-XT, mvBlueFOX3, mvBlueFOX

mvIMPACT Acquire is Docker compatible

Whether used as a virtualized development environment or as an easily scalable application in a cloud, container virtualizations using Docker are very popular because they run independently of the operating system via a Docker engine and therefore require little memory. The low memory requirements also allow them to be used on embedded systems. Another advantage is that applications within the container can be isolated not only from each other, but also from their underlying system.

We have also implemented our mvIMPACT Acquire drivers in such a way that you have full access to our cameras in a Docker container. We have documented how to do this in our manuals.

Website updates

Industrial cameras, accessories

Sensor overview and lens suggestions

We have updated the website in two places.

On the one hand there is now the camera selector there is now a subpage for the respective sensors with additional information such as spectral characteristics and EMVA1288 measurement protocols. The sensor subpage also shows in which cameras the respective sensor is available. As we regularly add new sensors to the portfolio, this new view is helpful for many who have specific sensors in mind.

On the other hand, we have updated the Lens Calculator enhanced. Once a calculation is triggered, two buttons appear at the bottom of the calculator that lead to either matching S-mount or C-mount lenses. On the opened pages, the filters are then preassigned accordingly. Due to the preassignment, the visitor can still do something himself and adjust the result table, if desired.
