Machine vision is a dynamic field: STEMMER IMAGING and our suppliers are the world´s leading manufacturers for machine vision components and solutions, introducing many brand new developments several times a year.
A new, wide angle lens with a focal length of 25 mm has been added to the Zeiss Interlock range of compact, lightweight lenses. These are designed for use with large format area and line scan cameras. The full metal housing, locking screws for focus and aperture and their resilience to dust, water and vibration make these lenses ideally suited to use in very harsh industrial environments.
STEMMER IMAGING have been appointed as an approved supplier for Intel® RealSense™ technology and will promote and provide support services to accelerate the integration of the latest D400 series of Intel RealSense™ 3D imaging technology into real world applications.
High resolution and high frame rate cameras produce huge quantities of image data. The new RIC10 series of cameras from VRMagic utilise 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) with GigE Vision support. This provides one of the highest data transfer rates available for industrial vision - up to 1.25GB/s over distances up to 100 metres. With an impressive choice of high resolution and high frame rate sensors, the RIC10 Series can be used in a huge range of demanding industrial applications with minimum disruption to existing factory networks.
JAI has added 4k and 8k resolution models to the Sweep series of line scan cameras. These new cameras feature custom high-speed CMOS imagers and are among the fastest monochrome line scan cameras in the industry, enabling users to achieve even higher throughput to give new levels of productivity.
The partnership between the Danish camera supplier JAI and STEMMER IMAGING has started in the very early days of STEMMER IMAGING, and JAI still is one of our most important suppliers. In this interview, Michael Sehested Lund, Sales Manager EMEA, presents his visions about trends and future developments from a JAI perspective.
The new Sweep CMOS monochrome line scan camera from JAI offers an excellent combination of large, high sensitivity pixels and high scan rates for industrial vision inspection. With an outstanding price/performance ratio this is one of the first line scan cameras to utilise the high speed CoaXPress interface.
With video analysis an essential part of professional football, all clubs in the first and second divisions in Germany have used the VIS.TRACK tracking system during the seasons 2011/12 and 2012/13. In addition, trainers of World Cup winners, Germany, used parts of this system (VT.PanoramicView) during the tournament preparations. VIS.TRACK was jointly developed by deltatre (formerly known as IMPIRE) and STEMMER IMAGING.
The Munich based company Impire has developed a system for match analysis for
the German Football League (DFL). Technical and tactical information, such as
ball possession, flanks or shots on goal can be analysed as well as physical
data of the players such as run speed, resting phases or sprint intensity.
This complex system has been developed with hardware components and the
imaging software Common Vision Blox from STEMMER IMAGING.
