The LX models with VisualApplets technology offer easy, application-specific image processing. This makes it possible to increase throughput, to simplify system design or to lower system costs.
Image processing is carried out directly in the camera FPGA – in this way you can achieve real-time behavior for your application. At the same time, the quantity 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 developed by 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 at any time. Image data can thus be processed efficiently and cost-effectively with very high resolution and speed.
3D cameras for high-performance laser triangulation
The 3D cameras can locate the focal point of the laser line in the camera with sub-pixel accuracy. This means that you can transfer the profile data only, and thus significantly reduce the amount of data. With a resolution of up to 12 megapixel, line width of up to 4K and profile rates of more than 2.5 kHz at 128 lines, the slightest deviations are reliably detected even at high process speeds.
Cameras with JPEG image compression
Thanks to models with integrated JPEG image compression, you can save all down the line: from bandwidth through CPU load to storage space. This simplifies system design and reduces integration costs. The compression rate is configurable, allowing the image quality to be individually adapted to each application.
