GigE Vision camera firmware 1.5 with new trigger modes and pulse width modulation

With the current GigE Vision firmware release, version 1.5, IDS has as always focused on making functions as useful and simple as possible. The new Trigger Controlled Exposure Mode was therefore integrated according to the Vision standard, but at the same time extended to ensure reliable camera operation even at the limits.

Users of GigE Vision camera models and the IDS Vision Suite will benefit from an extended range of functions. New cameras are sold directly with the updated firmware. Those who already use GigE Vision industrial cameras from IDS can easily update them and then use helpful new functions such as extended trigger modes, programmable counters and timers as well as the IDS-specific pulse width modulation feature.GigE Vision camera firmware 1.5 offers new trigger modes and pulse width modulation, among other features


With the current GigE Vision firmware release, version 1.5, IDS has as always focused on making functions as useful and simple as possible. The new Trigger Controlled Exposure Mode was therefore integrated according to the Vision standard, but at the same time extended to ensure reliable camera operation even at the limits. For example, users can enter a maximum value to define a time out after which exposure is automatically cancelled even without a separate signal.

Programmable counter support has also been added. Among other things, they can control that an exactly defined number of images is captured after the trigger input. The new timer function can both stop and count down time. One of its use cases: After trigger input, users want a specified period of time to elapse before recording begins.

With the release of IDS GigE Vision Firmware V1.5, IDS has also greatly enhanced the IDS vision cameras by adding many standard features from the GenICam Standard Feature Naming Convention. With the IDS Vision Cockpit, the camera manufacturer also provides an ideal demo tool, which can be used to thoroughly test the different trigger cases.

As an IDS-specific feature, a pulse width modulation has also been integrated into the firmware. This feature can control the brightness of certain light sources, for example. The function can also be used to precisely synchronize light source and exposure time, which avoids unnecessary lighting phases.

ROBOTMASTER V7

ROBOTMASTER V7

Since Robotmaster V7 uses integrated CAD/CAM functionality, for the first time, the power of Robotmaster can be used by welding, cutting and other process experts without buying or learning complex CAD/CAM software. As in past versions, Robotmaster V7 imports paths, but now makes it even easier for end users to leverage any CAD/CAM tool choice. It is an intuitive tool that anyone could use, with or without robotics expertise. It bridges the gap between robots and manufacturing by providing easy programming solutions for part manufacturing.
