New models in affordable GigE camera range plus PoE options

21 Feb 2011

AVT has added a new camera to each end of its highly competitively priced range of Manta GigE Vision cameras. Available in both monochrome and colour variants, there are new 5?Mpixel and VGA (0.33 Mpixel) resolution versions of these robust cameras which can be used in industrial inspection and automation, logistics, intelligent traffic solutions and traffic monitoring. Also new for the entire range is the modular concept which includes a Power over Ethernet (PoE) option.

The two new cameras conform to the design philosophy of the rest of the Manta range with an impressive set of smart features at extremely competitive prices, thanks to a very lean manufacturing process. The colour versions of the cameras include colour interpolation/colour correction functions that outperform most cameras in this price class.

The new 5 Megapixel version features the highly sensitive 2/3" Sony ICX655 Super-HAD CCD sensor. The high resolution performance also makes it suitable for healthcare, medical, scientific and research applications as well as high resolution industrial imaging. The 0.33?Megapixel version utilises a 1/2" Sony ICX414 sensor with especially high light sensitivity and runs at 88 frames per second at full resolution. This versatile camera is also useful for machine vision and semiconductor applications.

For even more flexibility, all Manta models now offer optional housing variations from the AVT modular concept. The highlight of this approach is the new optional PoE version which will be available for all models in the range. PoE allows the Gigabit Ethernet interface cable to supply the camera with power as well as carrying the image data, removing the need for an additional power supply and cable.

Other options include angled-head versions for more easily mounting the camera into small spaces. A board-level version with no housing and up to 200mm connection between sensor and main board is also available whilst a white medical design housing is available for scientific and medical applications.
