The hr342 with CoaXPress interface is SVS-Vistek's latest industrial camera. Its features predestine it for a multitude of demanding applications in automated quality control. SVS-Vistek's cutting-edge technology allows maximum speed together with best image quality.

Excellent Sensor

The Sony IMX342 sensor with 31 megapixels captivates with an image quality far above standards in this range of resolution. Fixed Pattern Noise and Signal-to-Noise Ratio are at the highest level. The result is excellent flatness and a very convincing dynamic range of ore than 70 dB.
The pixel architecture is the superb, light-sensitive Sony Pregius 2 cell. For the pixel size of 3.45µm there is a good selection of high-quality, but still inexpensive lenses on the market.

Fastest IMX342 Camera on the Market

With a frame rate of 35.4 fps, the hr342 from SVS-Vistek is currently the fastest camera with the high-quality Sony IMX342 on the market. This is made possible by the new Sony SLS-EC protocol of the sensor and the CoaXPress interface. A clever implementation of the interface and a housing design with excellent heat dissipation ensure a low operating temperature which in turn is responsible for low noise.

CoaXPress as High End Interface

The CoaXPress interface is more than just fast; it also offers long, thin data lines and a power supply for the camera via the data lines. CoaXPress offers many advantages. But if you can live with about 10% lower frame rate and need the flexibility of GigE, the hr342 with 10 GigE interface might fit your needs. It combines the flexibility of GigE with almost the speed of CoaXPress.

The CoaXPress version is already available as a sample for customers, the 10 GigE version will be available soon. In any case, the hr342 offers the latest technology in camera construction.
