USB 2.0 Color CMOS Camera for Machine Vision

Share Article

Audio Video Supply Inc., San Diego, CA, has introduced a USB 2.0 Color Camera for the Machine Vision Market. The VSPL-B782U Color USB 2.0 Camera is a new machine vision camera with a USB 2.0 output and software controlled features and capabilities. This camera works for machine vision applications where it is necessary to have a rolling shutter and an external trigger. Outputs are available for the external triggering capability as well as lighting strobe synchronization. The supported operation systems are currently Windows 2000 and XP. USB 2.0 is a very common way to access the imaging device and is preferred to analog video by many vision integrators.

This camera works for machine vision applications where is is necessary to have a rolling shutter and an external trigger. Outputs are available for the external triggering capability as well as lighting strobe synchronization. The supported operation systems are currently Windows 2000 and XP. USB 2.0 is a very common way to access the imaging device and is preferred to analog video by many vision integrators.

A rolling shutter and external trigger allows for full camera synchronization. The rolling shutter operates like a curtain shutter on a film camera. In video mode, the camera can deliver up to 27 fps at 1k x 1k resolution, up to 70 fps at VGA resolution (640 x 480) and up to 4230 fps at 24 x 24, all with user-definable region of interest (ROI). Full field-of-view images can be decimated for high-speed transmission. The camera has a user-selectable 8 or 10-bit output. This same camera is also available in a Firewire Version as well as a monochrome option and with lower resolution imagers.

The CMOS sensor architecture is designed for anti-blooming capability. Blooming is a problem in any automated inspection application and can happen frequently with CCD type sensors. With the Software Developer's Kit (SDK), AVS supplies an extensive Application Programming Interface (API) and camera control Graphical User Interface (GUI) for application development. This functionality includes additional trigger modes, general-purpose outputs that can be used as communication lines for strobe signals for lighting and motion controllers. Included is an on-board user-programmable lookup table (LUT) applied in real time, on-board non-volatile memory for camera configuration and camera configuration descriptors for quick changes to camera settings between frames. Multi-slope dynamic range controls, enables balanced exposure in images with large inner-scene dynamic range.

Two case styles are available, straight and right-angle for flexibility in mounting the cameras.
