1/1.8" CCD GigE camera, 1628x1236, 14fps, mono

The Basler SCA1600 14GM is based on a selection of the best Sony CCD sensors and offers a wide variety of resolutions and speeds. The family also includes a high-performance CMOS sensor from Aptina. With their Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and FireWire-b ™ (IEEE 1394b) interface technologies, the cameras in this family are defined by state of the art technology that lets you get the maximum performance from each sensor.

The SCA160014GM features a GenICam compliant API and uses new drivers. The FireWire-b cameras are also compatible with the DCAM API for FireWire cameras. Along with the drivers, GUI based software is provided that lets users easily set camera parameters, adjust image quality, and control cameras from a remote computer. Basler scout cameras are a perfect fit for a variety of vision applications including semiconductor and component inspection, manufacturing quality control, food and beverage inspection, intelligent traffic systems, microscopy and medical imaging, biometrics, and many others.

The scout family is equipped with assorted Sony CCD sensors in mono and color. These sensors were selected to provide outstanding image quality in combination with the scout ’s read-out and processing electronics. For precise imaging results, all scout cameras run in progressive scan mode. Users of interlaced analog cameras can easily switch to a scout camera equipped with Aptina ’s MT9V022 CMOS progressive scan sensor.

Basler provides its own Gigabit Ethernet drivers for the scout camera family. These drivers will be compatible with the GigE Vision standard and optimized for the scout family. The filter driver quickly separates incoming packets carrying image data from other traffic on the network and makes the data available for vision applications running on the computer. By using the performance driver, even demanding applications with multiple cameras, high data rates, or very strict real-time requirements can be supported. When the performance driver is used in combination with a dedicated network interface card (Intel), the load on the host computer ’s CPU is significantly reduced.

In addition to Basler ’s standard CTT automated quality assurance and calibration system, the scout camera family will be tested and measured with another production tool. This unique tool is an ultrahigh precision sensor alignment device. The device automatically mounts the sensor board on the camera ’s front module in six degrees of freedom with reference to the optical axis. This ensures a constant depth of focus over the whole sensor. For sensors with small pixels (< 5 μm) this is essential for good imaging results.
