AVT Showcases Cameras Featuring New Un-Released CCD Sensor at Automate 2013

Allied Vision Technologies will offer a sneak preview of two early camera prototypes featuring a brand new CCD sensor from a leading sensor manufacturer at Automate 2013 in Chicago (January 21-24, 2013).

MakoAs a world-leading machine vision camera manufacturer, Allied Vision Technologies works closely with major sensor manufacturers on assessing new sensor designs in the development phase. This gives AVT the opportunity to implement attractive new sensors very shortly after they have been released. The Manta G-409 and Mako G-409 will feature a new 4 Megapixel (2024 x 2024), 1:1 image ratio, 1/1.8" class CCD sensor. It will deliver 21fps in the Manta camera family and 11fps in the Mako series. Both cameras are expected to be available later in 2013.

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.
