Nanosmart 5MP Smart Camera

WÜRSELEN, Germany, Oct. 16, 2009 – The Nanosmart-PoE, a 5-megapixel smart camera with active power over Ethernet (PoE) in an industrial housing, has been unveiled by FiberVision GmbH. At its heart is the single-board camera VCSBC4012 nanomanufactured by Vision Components.
All interfaces are accessed via an RJ45 and an RJ48 plug. The RJ45 PoE plug provides the 100-Mb data interface as well as the power supply. The RJ48 plug makes available eight digital 24-V input/outputs and a 24-VDC power supply. High-speed input/outputs are used for precise camera and flash light synchronization. The delay between flash trigger and exposure start is programmable as is the flashing time, resulting in well-defined short exposure times, even with the rolling shutter of the CMOS camera.
Six LEDs display operational states. Their 3.3-V power supplies are made available on an OEM plug. They may be used as additional outputs together with a dedicated flash trigger. The PoE power supply is galvanically isolated against the input/outputs. The camera can be power-supplied by a PC while it exchanges data with a programmable logic controller via the digital input/outputs. No equalizing currents or ground loops will occur.
All new configuration modes and interfaces are made available through one additional function call using the familiar development tools for Vision Components cameras. No additional programming tools are required.
The camera has a CS lens mount, and an adapter for S-mount is available. A 5-mm spacer ring is provided with each system. Using this, the CS-mount becomes a C-mount, meaning all established industry lenses can be used with the camera.
