Precision at top speed – New camera series combines powerful CMOS sensors with Dual GigE

segunda, 12. setembro 2011

The new HXG series teams up the latest CMOS sensors with Dual GigE interface technology for the first time. These combination is the response from Baumer to increasing market demand for high-resolution cameras that deliver excellent image quality even at high speeds.


  • Resolutions of 2 and 4 Megapixel
  • Dual GigE Technology
  • Correlated Double Sampling (CDS)

The HXG cameras are available with resolutions of 2 and 4 megapixels and reliably transfer more than 100 frames/s. Their Dual GigE technology lets them achieve a bandwidth of 240 MB/s – double the GigE bandwidth – while exploiting all the advantages of Gigabit Ethernet. The standard interface permits simple, flexible integration into existing systems and supports cable lengths of up to 100 meters while simultaneously reducing integration costs. This combination results in short inspection times and makes the new Baumer models the fastest series of GigE cameras now on the market.

High resolutions of up to 2048 x 2048 pixels ensure the desired product quality by optically monitoring even the tiniest details. The Global Shutter sensor from CMOSIS with Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) guarantees sharp images and low readout noise for precise measurements. Besides excellent image quality, high sensitivity is another convincing argument for the HXG models, which are even more responsive than cameras with CCD sensors. This reduces measuring times to increase throughput and therefore production capacity. The new models will be available in monochrome and color as well as in monochrome for the near infra-red range (NIR) in the fourth quarter of 2011.
