GigE Vision cameras with IP67 available on request
MATRIX VISION extends the range of the successful mvBlueCOUGAR-X GigE Vision camera with an IP67 model. This version of the camera is effectively protected against dust. It may also be temporarily immersed in water and is therefore highly suitable for harsh environments. A special housing and an adapted hardware design make this possible. The stainless steel housing can be divided and extended. In the standard version C-mount lenses of up to 40 mm in length are supported. However, it is possible to implement other lengths and mounts on request. The camera offers two screw-fastened, industrial standard M12 connectors: one for the power supply, four inputs (opto-coupler) and four robust outputs (high side, solid state relays) and one for the x-coded Ethernet interface. It is possible to power the camera either via PoE (Power over Ethernet) or with 12..24 VDC. The camera uses less than 6 W.
The mvBlueCOUGAR-X is a compact Gigabit Ethernet camera available in different versions. For this reason the camera is suitable for many applications. It contains a multitude of smart features like flat field correction, color correction, white balance etc. which can be performed on the camera directly. This significantly reduces the load of the host system. The 64 MB image memory ensures loss-free image transfer and additionally serves, for example, as a buffer in recoding mode. In this mode the images are saved in the camera and are sent when bandwidth is available. The camera is compliant with the GenICam and GigE Vision standards. Drivers are available for Windows and Linux. Furthermore, the camera supports all image processing libraries which are compliant with GigE Vision.
