FRAMOS Launches new Visiosens VFU Camera Platform
…housed USB Cameras Customised for High-Tech industries

Camberley, UK, 1st November 2011 – Image processing specialist FRAMOS, announces the launch of the new Visiosens VFU Camera Platform.

The new VF camera series is much more than just a range of cameras; it is a highly flexible and customisable image capture platform with more than 200 camera variants per image sensor.

The Visiosens platform comprises a growing number of CCD and CMOS image sensors ranging from 0.3 to10.0 Megapixels, a variety of output interfaces including USB2.0 & USB3.0 (through a Mini-B USB jack with horizontal screw lock), complementary assembly concepts, mounts and filters. For all variants, the user and system interface is built on a unified, future-proof, cross-platform software development kit based on the latest .NET™ technology and compatible with Windows and Linux.

The extremely robust camera housing is specifically designed for industrial systems as well as for microscopy. It offers multiple mounting options on each side and the front face which are all symmetrical to the optical axis of the sensor.

You can choose from C-, CS- or M12-mounts for all models. An optional LED ring with 7 colour options, integrated in the housing and connected to the 8-pin I/O port with 3 IN and 3 OUT ports save money and space.

The system design and production process is optimised for a variety of options and ensures very short delivery times at an outstanding price-performance ratio. This enables maximum flexibility for customer-specific developments.

The system comes with full hardware and software documentation.
