Basler “aviator” GigE Cameras Start Series Production

Ahrensburg, 28 April 2011 – Basler has started series production of aviator area scan camera models with a GigE interface. These cameras combine superior image quality, speed, and leading edge Basler GigE technology in an ideal way. With a starting price of 1590€, they are among the most cost-effective cameras in their performance class.

The new camera models feature 1, 2 (4:3 and HDTV), and 4 megapixel resolutions in mono or color. The GigE interface offers reliable data transport at over 100 frames per second at 1 megapixel resolution (100 MB/s) over distances of up to 100 meters.

As a result of Basler’s extensive Kodak sensor experience, the aviator series offers great image quality, even at high image capture rates. Due to their advanced four tap readout technology, the new generation of Kodak sensors used in aviator cameras is up to four times faster than comparable CCD sensors. And with Basler’s unique tap balancing capabilities, the sensors yield the most homogenous imaging results.

Equipped with a compact 62 mm x 62 mm x 57 mm housing and features such as progressive readout and global shutter technology, aviator GigE cameras are well suited for a large array of applications in different industries, including factory automation/robotics and medical imaging as well as photovoltaics and the ITS market.

The new aviator GigE camera models complement Basler’s already well-established aviator models that feature a Camera Link interface.
