One of the worlds smallest GigE vision cameras

Unparalleled flexibility with an excellent price-performance ratio: This is how one best would describe the ECO series. Comprising 88 different variants, the cameras use well-known Sony CCD sensors with resolution ranging from VGA to 5 megapixel. The cameras are among the smallest industrial cameras and were specifically developed to provide the highest frame rates paired with excellent signal-to-noise ratio. Supporting GigE Vision and GenICam standards, the ECO series opens up new possibilities for integrating into your specific applications.

All versions of the ECO series have the following features:

  • Progressive Scan CCD sensors
  • Monochrome and color versions (Bayer Pattern)
  • Various trigger (int./ext./free running) and exposure modes
  • Adjustable gain
  • Auto- exposure and auto-gain   
  • Various binning modes
  • Area of interest modes (AOI)
  • Gigabit Ethernet interface with max. 120 MB/s datarate
  • GigE-Vision and GenICam standard compliant
  • 8/12 Bit video data stream (14 Bit ADC)
  • 64 MB memory inside
  • White balance for color versions (one push or manual)
  • Proven I/O-Concept: 2 x Input (0-24 V), 1 x Input RS-422,
  • 2 x Output (24 V, 0,3 A), 1 x Output RS-422, 1 x Serial RS-232
  • CS/C-Mount lens interface
  •  Operating temperature range from -10°C (non-condensing) to +45°C
  • Wide range Power conditions: 10 – 25 V DC
  • SDK for Windows XP/7 (32/64 Bit) and Linux available
  • Sequence-Shutter and enhanced Strobe-Functionality
  • 4 x Output (24 V, 0,3 A), e.g. for strobing LEDs
  • Prepared for Lens- and Pan/Tilt unit control

Various Versions for various Requirements

Whether you want to operate the ECO directly from your system, leveraging the precise I/O-timing of the rugged ECO I/O-concept or if you want to use the benefits of the "Power over Ethernet" technology (PoE version) that greatly simplifies cabling – the ECO is the efficient answer to your requirements.

The wide range of variants ensures easy integration into new and existing image processing systems. Thanks to its advanced electronic design the ECO series delivers very high frame rates at exceptionally low noise. The high quality of the analogue CCD video signal chain using Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) leads to a significant reduction in noise. The use of intelligent logic also offers a variety of different modes of exposure timing and trigger control settings.

Using one of the cameras of the ECO family in your quality control solution provides maximum performance in early detection of defective products, thereby reducing production costs and increasing profits.
