The svs340, a high-speed camera for machine vision applications, has been unveiled by SVS-Vistek GmbH. The 640 × 480-pixel Camera Link camera can be accelerated up to 400 fps and, with a Gigabit Ethernet interface, reaches 264 fps. The 1/3-in. CCD is read out via two taps. The analog CCD signal is processed via correlated double sampling, and digital signal conversion ensures a good signal-to-noise ratio. The internal microcontroller provides various ways of adjusting operating mode, exposure time, gain and offset. Synchronization of image capture to an external event can be user-adjusted. Exposure time can be modified by the serial Camera Link interface or by trigger pulse width. The camera is available in monochrome and color.
