Baumer expands the functionality of HX series cameras with a firmware update.

Beginning in July, Baumer HX-series Dual GigE and Camera Link cameras will be equipped with new firmware. This will enhance existing functionality with features such as HDR (High Dynamic Range), Multi ROI and improved FPN (Fixed Pattern Noise) correction. Furthermore, the new revision 3 of CMOSIS sensors is supported.

HDR acquisitions deploy Piecewise-Linear Response technology permitting dynamic range up to 90 dB in a scene. Inspection of shiny surfaces, for example, will become easier. The integrated Multi ROI (Region of Interest) function enables transfer of several sections from an image to make optimum use of the very high frame rate, even at reduced bandwidth. Both horizontal and vertical image sections are processed. Thanks to integrated FPN correction, the cameras provide excellent image quality with low noise.

Baumer Dual GigE and Camera Link cameras were specially developed for applications with high frame rate, resolution and sensitivity requirements. They are equipped with CMOSIS global shutter sensors with 2 and 4 megapixel resolutions at rates up to 337 fps. Specially optimized models for the NIR range are also available.
