Out Now: Five New Mako Camera Models With CMOS and CCD Sensors

Allied Vision expands its entry-level camera family, Mako with five new models ranging from VGA to 1.9 Megapixels with up to 309 fps.

Allied Vision releases five new models of its popular Mako camera family. New CMOS and CCD from CMOSIS, e2v and Sony offer high sensitivity and up to 309 fps at VGA resolution.


Mako G-030: High-Speed GigE with more than 300 frames per second

The Mako G-030 targets industrial inspection applications with a high throughput. It features the new CMV300 CMOS sensor from CMOSIS. This global shutter imager with fast readout allows for a frame rate of up to 309 fps at full VGA resolution. Thanks to its High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode and built-in defect pixel correction, the Mako G-030 delivers excellent image quality.

Dynamic Duo: Mako G-050 and Mako G-095 with new CCD sensors

Allied Vision integrates two new Sony CCD sensors with a very high sensitivity and outstanding dynamic range into the Mako series. The Mako G-050 features the ICX693 with 0.5 Megapixels and the Mako G-095 the ICX692 with 0.9 Megapixels/720p HD resolution. Both sensors outperform comparable sensors on all major sensitivity and image quality criteria: dark noise, quantum efficiency, dynamic range, and full-well/saturation capacity. They also deliver high frame rates. With their high dynamic range, these two new Mako models are ideally suited for low light image-processing applications such as microscopy and surveillance.

Mako G-131 and Mako G-192: CMOS sensors from e2v

Two additional models with CMOS sensors have been added in the middle of the Mako range: Mako G-131 and Mako G-192 with 1.3 and 1.9 Megapixels respectively. Both cameras feature Sapphire CMOS sensors from e2v (EV76C560 and EV76C570) with switchable shutter modes (rolling/global/global reset). Both models offer a high frame rate with regards to their resolution (62 and 60 fps).

Mako is Allied Vision's small and affordable entry-level camera series. With these additions, the Mako range now counts 11 models from VGA to 4 Megapixel, with a large choice of CCD and CMOS sensor available in monochrome and color version (some models with NIR-enhanced option) to cover most industrial inspection needs. All five new models are available immediately.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
