Zelos-02150, the Kappa High Definition Vision Camera with GigE Vision

Gleichen, (PresseBox) - Kappa introduces a new vision camera based on our modular high-performance platform with 14-bit digitization. The first model, the Zelos-02150 has a GigE Vision interface and offers a resolution of 1920 x 1080p and a frame rate of up to 30 fps. It fulfills all typical Kappa quality characteristics regarding hardiness and longevity. The camera features several technical highlights. One of them is the 2/3" Kodak sensor KAI-02150, which supports 1080p and excels with an excellent dynamic range and the best image performance. A further plus is the high-performance GigE Vision interface. This creates a perfect combination of a high transfer rate (1 Gbit/s), a low-priced interface on the PC, inexpensive cabling with thin CAT5e cables up to 100 m (300 feet) and a standardized user-friendly communication protocol. The brilliant visualization of the smallest details with the lowest-contrast is the result of the numerous real-time signal processing functions based on a 14-bit digitization. Among the functions are adjustments of different exposure modes, read-out modes (e.g., binning, partial scan), frame rates, gain and exposure settings, measuring window functions, contrast and edge enhancement functions (e.g., histogram equalization), line and circular line generators and dynamic look-up tables. The color processing offers adjustments for the Bayer filter interpolation, color space transformation and color saturation. The modular camera platform can serve different sensors and signal interfaces and thus can fulfill the requirements for machine vision applications as well as applications in defense, aviation and medical imaging.
