Stemmer Imaging is offering the XCD-MV6 miniature firewire (IEEE1394b) camera from Sony for applications in machine vision and robotics.

The ultra-compact and lightweight camera measures 19mm (3/4in) in depth and weighs 37g, yet produces high-quality images.

The camera also features a vibration- and shock-resistant structure.

These attributes make the XCD-MV6 suitable for applications where space is restricted.

The progressive scan XCD-MV6 features a 1/3in-type global shutter CMOS sensor operating at a frame rate of 60fps at wide VGA resolution and conforms to the IIDC 1.32 protocol, taking advantage of IEEE1394 data transmission capabilities with speeds of 800Mbps or 1.6Gbps.

Partial scanning allows higher frame rates to be achieved on smaller areas of interest.

The XCD-MV6 has low power consumption.

Digital signal processing capabilities include functions for correction for pixel defects, fixed pattern noise and shading produced by lenses and light sources, therefore ensuring the high image quality required for machine vision use.

A temporary image storage function allows up to 100 image frames (independent of bit length) to be stored for later transmission.

A memory channel allows storage of up to 15 sets of camera setting such as gain and shutter.

The camera also features a broadcast delivery function for use in a multiple camera application.

This allows the camera settings for all the cameras connected to the same bus to be changed at the same time.

For example, the gain or shutter speed can be set to the same value on all the cameras, or exposure started on all the cameras simultaneously using a software trigger.

STEMMER IMAGING is Europe’s largest imaging technology provider with headquarters in Germany and subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, France and Switzerland.

Image processing or Machine Vision is used in many different application areas – such as industrial automation, medical imaging, security and traffic technology – as a powerful and cost effective way of implementing automatic quality assurance. Even at high speeds and with stringent accuracy requirements, image processing allows 100% monitoring and thus strengthens the competitive edge of those companies using it.

STEMMER IMAGING customers have access to a wide variety of imaging products from the worlds leading manufacturers. These manufacturers represent the cutting edge of vision technology which is something that is unique in Europe. STEMMER IMAGING are the developers of the world’s leading image processing software platform, Common Vision Blox, and as a manufacturer of customer-specific products, we have a full range of in-house expertise to draw on, allowing us to supply the best possible service to our customers when choosing an imaging solution. STEMMER IMAGING does not produce turn-key solutions – instead, using our close partnerships with a large number of experienced system integrators, we can provide expert technical know-how for the planning, integration and realisation of complete solutions.
