OPPENWEILER, Germany, Oct. 21, 2011 — Matrix Vision GmbH’s single-board camera family, mvBlueFOX-MLC, is now available with a housing. Named the mvBlueFOX-IGC (industrial-grade compact), the series includes two models with two different back planes. The first model features one mini USB interface, and the second, a further circular connector for the digital inputs and outputs. For both connectors, the company provides a variety of cables with different lengths, including bent and lockable versions, and versions suitable for drag chains. The hardware features are the same in the MLC and the IGC. There are CMOS sensors from wide VGA up to 5 megapixels, with global or rolling shutter, and C- and CS-mount lens holders are available. For industrial integration, 1/1 opto-isolated digital inputs are offered. The cameras feature automatic gain control, automatic exposure control and, in some cases, high-dynamic-range or high-sensitivity mode for use in low-light environments. The cameras support Linux and Windows drivers as well as DirectShow, NeuroCheck, Halcon, LabView and other third-party software products, and the proprietary mvIMPACT image processing library.
