3 head GigE Vision Gigabit Ethernet industrial camera - mvBlueCOUGAR-3X

3 head GigE Vision camera
  • Compact industrial camera series with Gigabit Ethernet
  • High quality CCD sensors
  • Gray scale, color
  • Hardware preprocessing onboard (FPGA) for reducing CPU load
  • High resolution ADC up to 14 bit
  • 64 MB internal image memory for reliable image transfer
  • Internal temperature sensors

Options:

  • Industrial connection concept (POE-I)

The Gigabit Ethernet camera mvBlueCOUGAR-X is also available as a 3 head model and allows the operation of three identical sensor heads at one basic electronics. The model behaves like a single GigE Vision camera, which reduces handling. The information of the three sensors are returned as a packed pseudo RGB image, with each color channel representing one sensor. Thus, you can use the model with almost every standard GigE Vision software.

Further highlights are the precise synchronous acquisition of all sensors as well as the possibility to trigger all sensors simultaneously. Furthermore, you can set the gain and the offset of each sensor separately.
