Produced in line with their commitment to provide user-friendly technologies, Dalsa' two new additions, the Genie M1280 and C1280 GigE cameras, continue with the company's tradition of producing cameras that are extremely easy to use, affordable and quick to deploy, and stand to become the "camera of choice" in industrial imaging applications.
About GigE Vision GigE Vision is an interface standard for high-performance industrial cameras where the data transfer length exceeds the maximum length of firewire, USB and CameraLink interfaces. Only certified-compliant products can carry the GigE Vision Logo. DALSA continues to lead the deployment of the GigE Vision standard and both the Genie C1280 and the Genie M1280 are certified GigE Vision-compliant.
Why is GigE Vision useful? A number of factors make GigE Vision-compliant camera a attractive proposition.
Using low-cost, standard CAT-5e and CAT-6 cables, GigE Vision enables fast image transfer (1000 Mbps), quickly, over long distances.
Delivers uncompromised data transfer over cable distances of up to 100 metres.
The length of cable allows for a greater distance between the camera and the inspection system.
Low cost cables, connectors and hardware (no need for specialized frame grabber) allow easy, los-cost integration.
GigE Vision ignores vendors and can operate seamlessly over GigE connections using hardware and software from different sources.
More cameras can be connected to the workflow.
