Camera modules for machine integration

Numerous CMOS sensors with VGA up to multi megapixel resolution can be used. With Ethernet / GigE Vision, USB, and CameraLink, the most important industrial interfaces are available for selection. Computerbased systems are equipped with control software.

Third-party software is directly usable via GigE Vision, USB 3 Vision or GeniCam with no problem whatsoever. For integration into specific applications, the SDK (GV) offers optimal adaptation possibilities (Windows, Linux).

Kappa’s typical Rugged quality ensures high resistance and long life. With crystal-clear signal quality, clean characterization, and proprietary color processing, the cameras are perfect for all automated imaging systems, and thanks to precise synchronization, for 3D systems as well.
