Iris P-Series Cameras
Three additions to the Iris P-Series family of programmable smart cameras, designed for professional developers and OEMs, have been annoucned. The Iris P300C, P700 and P1200 join the Iris P300 with its monochrome 640 X 480 30 fps 1/4″-type CCD sensor. The P300C offers a color 640 X 480 30 fps 1/4″-type CCD sensor, P700 includes a monochrome 1024 X 768 20 fps 1/3″-type CCD sensor and P1200 offers a monochrome 1280 X 1024 7.5 fps 1/2″-type CCD sensor. All models are powered by an Ultra Low Power (ULP) Celeron, an embedded Intel architecture processor. They run the Windows CE .NET real-time operating system and are programmed using Microsoft eMbedded Visual C++. OEMs and integrators can develop their applications with the company’s imaging library, a toolbox for image processing solutions, and run them directly on the series. These cameras support the flexibility of PC-based machine vision systems, and feature hardware for image sensing as well as a software application programming interface (API) for image analysis. They are fully programmable and can be customized by OEM and integrators for vertical markets such as automotive, electronics, pharmaceutical, and robotics.
