Nikon Metrology and Pixelink form partnership to accelerate European industrial camera sales
The intent of the partnership is to deliver industrial microscopy cameras to fulfill midrange customer requirements.
Microscope and precision-instrument maker Nikon Metrology (Leuven, Belgium) and industrial-camera producer Pixelink (Ottawa, ON, CA) are entering into a strategic partnership to accelerate sales of affordable industrial microscopy cameras in Europe. As part of this collaboration, Nikon Metrology will distribute Pixelink cameras as standalone devices or integrated with Nikon NIS-Elements Microscope Imaging Software, says Nikon.
Pixelink industrial microscopy cameras have high-resolution CMOS sensors, global or rolling shutter technology, and USB 3.0 connectivity. Pixelink says the M-Series high-definition cameras have rapid refresh rates, crisp live images, fluid navigation, and fast focusing and are available from 4 to 15 MP resolution.
"These cameras are fully integrated with Nikon NIS software and can easily be used in conjunction with Nikon's state-of-the-art vision measuring instruments," says Lisanne Glavin, General Manager at Pixelink.
Pixelink camera models now available through Nikon Metrology include the M5DC Versatile, M12BC Fast 4K, M4C Measurement and the M15C Documentation. All cameras come in a ruggedized cylindrical housing bundled with a 2M industrial USB 3.0 cable and Pixelink Capture image acquisition software.
Nikon Metrology's measuring and precision instruments are intended to contribute to a high performance design-through-manufacturing process to shorten manufacturing time while maintaining high quality. For more info, see www.nikonmetrology.com.
