LX series VisualApplets cameras with integrated image preprocessing are a self-contained camera, lighting, and processing system ideal for quality inspections and error-proofing in pharmaceutical and assembly applications. Baumer is pleased to announce that these cameras were honored with the 2016 “Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards Program” Platinum-level award. The esteemed expert jury of system integrators and end-users considered the cameras as one of the top innovations 2016 in the image processing industry.
These cameras allow even non-expert users without profound FPGA knowledge to implement unique image processing solutions quickly and flexibly directly in the camera’s FPGA using the graphical programming environment VisualApplets by Silicon Software with no need for expensive and complex VHDL programming. At the same time the volume of transmission data is reduced so the PC-based image processing system is not required to perform complex algorithms requiring considerable processor power.
The new LX VisualApplets cameras integrate global shutter CMOS sensors by CMOSIS and a GigE Vision compliant interface, are available with 4, 12 and 20 megapixel resolutions and allow image acquisition and processing with VisualApplets with up to 74 fps.
