The Future of Machine Vision Continued: the Future Standards Forum

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Wed, Dec 19, 2012

In our thoughts on the future of machine vision, we hypothesized that their will likely be fewer interface standards.  This is a fairly safe prediction as the G3 (AIA, EMVA, and JIIA) recently formed The Future Standards Forum to, amongst other things, minimize overlap between standards.

The Future of Machine Vision

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Tue, Dec 11, 2012

Because it was the 25th Vision Show, and Adimec is celebrating our 20 year anniversary, we decided to look back on where machine vision has come from and where we are headed.  Click here for more information on the origins of machine vision

Considerations with ultra high resolution (12 MP+) machine vision cameras

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Fri, Nov 23, 2012

For many applications, machine vision cameras with increased resolution can offer advantages such as increased field of view or greater accuracy.  Now ultra high-resolution cameras (greater than 12 Megapixels) are available with acceptable frame rates such as 12 Megapixels at 66 fps.  With this change, there are some considerations…

CoaXPress Compliant Cameras Now Available

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Mon, Nov 12, 2012

Adimec's QUARTZ and OPAL cameras have both been certified as fully compliant with the CoaXPress interface standard version 1.0; our first high-performance area scan cameras to earn the certification. The cameras passed a comprehensive electrical compliancy test that began at the CoaXPress Plugfest during the Image Sensing Show (ISS) in Yokohama, Japan. The certification allows the Adimec cameras to carry the CoaXPress-certified logo, ensuring system developers that they are fully compliant with the coaxial cable-based interface and offer plug-and-play compatibility with certified frame-grabbers for more efficient development, implementation and integration within inspection and metrology systems.  All of the CoaXPress compliant products are listed on the Japanese Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA) web site with many more expected in the coming months.

How to save cabling costs with new machine vision interfaces

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Wed, Aug 29, 2012

With higher resolution and frame speed, the latest machine vision cameras can improve accuracy and increase capabilities with 3D measurements.  One of the challenges can be transferring this high data rate to the frame grabber and processing system.  Many advances have been made with Camera Link to increase data rates, but this can come at a big cable cost and with a limited distance (less than 10 to 15 meters).  The latest interfaces, such as CoaXPress, can reduce cable costs up to 98% for high data rate applications.
