“Intelligently solving image preprocessing”

CMOS cameras with VisualApplets technology and GigE Vision®

The LX models with VisualApplets technology are a new class of cameras at Baumer for easy, application-specific image preprocessing. This allows for increased throughput, simplified system design or lower system costs.

Since image preprocessing is carried out directly in the camera's FPGA, real-time application behavior is achieved. At the same time, the volume of data to be transmitted and processed can be reduced so that the PC-based image processing system does not have to perform algorithms requiring considerable processor power.

With VisualApplets, the graphical development environment for FPGA programming from Silicon Software, even complex algorithms can be implemented quickly and easily. It allows the user to adapt the camera's range of functions flexibly to the application, and enables efficient and economic image data processing at very high resolution and speed.

3D cameras for high-performance laser triangulation
The LX VisualApplets 3D cameras feature a particularly developed and pre-installed applet for laser triangulation. In favor of this, the laser line focus is located directly in the camera with subpixel accuracy, so transmission will only contain the profile data which will significantly reduce the amount of data. With up to 12 megapixel resolution, up to 4K line width as well as profile rates of more than 2.5 kHz at 128 lines they identify even the slightest deviations reliably at high processing speed.
