Board Level Cameras Provide Flexibility in Cramped Installation SpacesFor applications where every cubic millimeter of space counts, Baumer has introduced MXG board level cameras designed for individual integration into almost any small installation space. The cameras will be available in the first quarter of 2012.

MXG cameras feature a 28 x 28 mm sensor board that is connected to the system circuit board via flexprint, allowing the user to individually adjust the cameras to environmental conditions.

The MXG camera series includes four monochrome and four color cameras, all with resolutions ranging from VGA up to 4 megapixels.  Three of the MXG cameras feature powerful Sony CCD sensors, and a fourth features the CMOSIS four megapixel CMOS sensor.

The first camera model available in the MXG series will feature VGA resolution and a 140 frames/second transfer capability. A trigger delay feature will simplify synchronization between the camera and the application, and the camera's sequencer will make it much easier to capture images with changing acquisition requirements.

To support reliable data transfer in multi-camera operations, both packet delay and transmission delay modes are available. The GigE standard interface with Power over Ethernet can be used to reduce integration and maintenance costs.   Storable user sets simplify camera integration.
