When you need to be right up close: New GigE camera series with angled lens holder

SMARTEK Vision extends its Giganetix series, consisting of 32 camera types with the addition of a new variant, the Giganetix S90.
(PresseBox) (Pullach, ) In this variant the optical axis and the cable socket are angled at 90° to each other to create more space for the camera and lens in confined industrial machinery. Based on the world-proven electronics of the standard series, all camera types are available in the new S90 format at amazingly good value and with no minimum order quantity.

Several of our satisfied clients using the industrial Giganetix camera series from SMARTEK Vision faced the challenge of integrating a vision system into existing machines with very limited space. For this purpose, they needed a range of Giganetix series cameras with different image sensors. Due to existing certifications and previously established accessories, however, it was a requirement to remain with the existing data, I/O connectivity and software interface of the standard format cameras. Our challenge was to build a camera housing that can be integrated, together with a C-mount lens into a range width of only 100mm between device cover and the object to be analyzed. In addition to significant cost restraints, one customer was under extreme time pressure.
In just 5 weeks, the 90 degree angled housing of the Giganetix S90 series has been developed, evaluated, produced and delivered to the customers. Meeting all the requirements, the mechanical integration was easily accomplished and thanks to the unchanged hardware and software interfaces, the customers could use their previously developed image processing components without change or re-design.

Today, all Giganetix cameras are available in this S90 version with no minimum order quantity, short delivery times and as expected for SMARTEK Vision, excellent price-ratio-performance.
