The high-speed camera that stands comparison: the new 25 MP CoaXPress

Kehl, (PresseBox) - Comparing the specifications of high-speed cameras is not always a simple matter; it's often one that makes hard work of choosing the right machine vision components. The EMVA 1288 standard provides the basis for making quick and easy comparisons. Optronis now supplies the new 25 CoaXPress high-speed camera to EMVA 1288 standard requirements, thereby providing greater transparency in industrial image-processing.

The new 25 MP high-speed camera with real-time connection will be launched by Optronis GmbH at Vision in Stuttgart from 6 - 8 November. The 25 MP CoaXPress delivers a framerate of 72 images per second at full resolution, thus improving on its predecessor's performance by more than a third. As well as bringing improved performance to the market, the camera now also offers EMVA 1288 standard compliance.

An easy comparison to make
The EMVA 1288 standard has been developed by well-known manufacturers, distributors and research institutions under the umbrella of the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) and allows high-speed cameras to be compared on the basis of some simple principles. Cameras are defined using a manageable number of parameters, and to apply the parameters a standardized methodology is specified for gauging and describing the specifications for cameras and image sensors. Optronis' new 25 megapixel CoaXPress high-speed camera complies with this standard and can therefore be compared easily and objectively to provide transparency when choosing machine vision components.

"Customers are looking for yardsticks that allow them to compare different models and different manufacturers. We as a manufacturer believe that utilizing this means of comparison is of huge benefit. Ultimately, transparency and clarity help the customer - and therefore help us with our sales as well," says Dr. Bernd Reinke, Product Manager at Optronis.

EMVA 1288: not everything by far
However, the standardization of Optronis machine vision cameras goes much further than that. For easy configuration, the CL series cameras support the GenIcam standard as standard. In addition to that, products are also available with CameraLink and CoaXPress connection depending on requirements. Furthermore, the product has also been designed to take standard industrial lenses, such as those with an M42 thread and commercially available Nikon lenses.

"We see the benefits of Optronis cameras in their simplicity - both in their use and in the design of the technology," adds Reinke. "That's why for us the issue of standardization is an essential element in the development of user-friendly and high-performance products."

The 25 MP CoaXPress will be introduced at this year's Vision. The trade fair takes place in Stuttgart from 6 - 8 November. The camera will be on show at the Optronis stand I 41 in Hall 1.
