Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces new Power over Ethernet (PoE) Cameras.

Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces new Power over Ethernet (PoE) Cameras. These versatile cameras are designed to simplify a wide variety of machine vision applications including factory floor automation and imaging systems.


Powerful software allows customer-adjustable settings

Each power over Ethernet (PoE) Camera includes software that allows the customer to set area of interest (AOI), gain, exposure, white balance, frame rate, trigger delay, and digital output (flash) delay and duration. This powerful software can also implement edge enhancement, image mirroring and binning and hot pixel correction.

Ultra-compact housing design

The Power over Ethernet (PoE) Camera is manufactured using an ultra-compact housing design for use where space is at a premium. The camera is powered by either a PoE injector, which requires two GigE cables, or a PoE Computer Card. A powerful software interface is designed for ease-of-use. The camera can capture images in JPEG, Bitmap or AVI format for maximum versatility. Drivers for Direct Show (WDM), ActiveX and TWAIN are included.

Color and Monochrome models are offered

The Power over Ethernet (PoE) Camera is available in 1/1.8 in., ½ in., and 1/3 in. sizes, in both color and monochrome models. The PoE interface meets IEEE 802.3af and the camera is CE, RoHS and GenICam compliant. Optional equipment is also offered, including a ¼-20 Mounting adapter, a 5 m trigger cable and a PCIe Board for two cameras. Power over Ethernet (PoE) Cameras are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
