mvBlueCOUGAR-S - New variants with 2 and 5 megapixel CCD sensors
MATRIX VISION upgrades the mvBlueCOUGAR-S Gigabit Ethernet camera series and offers two new variants with 2 and 5 megapixel CCD sensors.
The range of available mvBlueCOUGAR-S cameras has been expanded to include two variants. The first one is called mvBlueCOUGAR-S124 and has a CCD sensor with a resolution of 1620 x 1220 pixels (2 megapixels) and a frame rate of max. 30 Hz. The second ones name is mvBlueCOUGAR-S125, which has a CCD sensor with a resolution of 2448 x 2050 pixels (5 megapixels) and a frame rate of max. 16 Hz. Both CCD sensors are available as gray scale and color versions.
All color versions of the mvBlueCOUGAR-S series execute Bayer demosaicing onboard directly. After acquisition, the image data can be transferred as RAW or RGB alternatively. Like the existing variants, the new ones offer one digital input and one digital output for trigger and flash as well as a C-mount lens holder. For power supply to the camera either an external power supply or the Ethernet interface can be used (so called PoE - Power over Ethernet). With this Ethernet interface, the cameras can also be operated in 100 Mbit networks.
The cameras of the mvBlueCOUGAR-S series support the GigE Vision interface standard and are compliant with GenICam, the software interface to GigE Vision. Drivers for Windows as well as Linux are available (mvIMPACT Acquire). Additionally the mvIMPACT Base library is included in delivery.
