Adimec earns CoaXPress compliance certification for its Machine Vision cameras

QUARTZ and OPAL cameras pass rigorous qualification process to certify full support of new high-speed, long-length interface standard

Eindhoven, The Netherlands, (PresseBox) - Adimec (, a world leader in application-specific, leading-edge industrial camera solutions, today announced that its 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.

QUARTZ series with CoaXPress

Adimec cameras earning the CoaXPress stamp of approval include the high-performance QUARTZ Q-4A180/CXP, the industry's first dual CoaXPress camera that benefits from the bandwidth of CoaXPress to reach beyond CameraLink. This camera outputs 4 Megapixel true 10 bit images at 180 fps while Camera Link cameras are limited to 8 bit images at lower speeds!

OPAL series with CoaXPress

The OPAL series are Adimec's most versatile CCD family, delivering unparalleled channel matching, linearity and dynamic range at resolutions between 1 and 8 megapixels at more than 120 FPS. These industrial strength cameras are used all over the world in the most demanding applications from wafer metrology to high speed traffic monitoring.

The latest version of the standard will enable even further adoption of the standard as it has now matured. There are already new additions to the standard planned for later this year. Please visit our web site to stay up to date.

"There is no question that CoaXPress has arrived as a global standard in the complete imaging chain and is now ready for easy customer adoption. Its cost, performance and flexibility advantages usher in a new era of imaging system capabilities that will enhance machine vision and outdoor applications in a variety of ways," said Joost van Kuijk, Vice President Marketing & Technology at Adimec. "We are pleased that our cameras are the first to receive official certification of compliance from the standard's organizers, and we applaud all the outstanding work they have done in making CoaXPress a commercial reality."

CoaXPress advantages include the ability to reduce costs, enable more connectivity flexibility, and achieve higher transmission rates over long distances. Previous generation interface methods are constrained by the high costs of rigid cabling and limitations in data rates. CoaXPress allows the transmission of high-speed data over a single coax cable and is scalable by adding more cables. In addition to the simplicity and benefits of using coax, CoaXPress works over long cable lengths - up to 40 metres at 6.25Gbps - and much further at lower speeds.
