Teledyne FLIR has launched a new family of 5GigE area scan cameras for machine vision.
The Forge camera was previously launched as Vizor, and the first models extend the Genie Nano 5GigE sensor offering by integrating 5 to 24 MP Sony Pregius Gen 4 Global Shutter CMOS sensors. This is aimed at high-speed applications in factory automation for electronics inspection, food processing, pharmaceuticals, and for sports analytics and virtual reality motion capture.
In addition to supporting link speeds of 1, 2.5, and 5GigE, Forge offers burst mode to capture images at speeds up to 10Gb/s into memory. This, combined with a 500 MB image buffer, allows engineers to rapidly capture information in bursts for high-speed applications. It’s Trigger-to-Image Reliability (T2IR) framework giving engineers tools to develop reliable and robust systems faster.
The Forge family includes a power over ethernet (PoE) interface , strong thermal management, and opto-isolated triggering for streamlined peripherals and easier camera control.
System engineers can replace current GigE Vision compliant cameras with Forge cameras to upgrade their system performance without changing their application software. Additionally, Forge cameras support both Teledyne Spinnaker and Sapera LT SDKs and GigE Vision compliant software packages.
“Forge is the first area scan camera family to harness the combined wealth of customer knowledge and technical expertise from Teledyne FLIR, Teledyne DALSA, and Teledyne Lumenera,” said Sadiq Panjwani, General Manager of Teledyne FLIR IIS. “It is designed from the ground up to empower systems engineers to quickly develop highly reliable and competitive products.”
