New Line of Fast CoaXPress 2.0 Cameras

"Since being approved as an official interface standard in 2011, CoaXPress (CXP) has established a leadership position in the machine vision industry by offering a combination of high levels of bandwidth, low latency, maximum reliability, extended coaxial cable lengths and fast speed. Mikrotron has launched a series of cameras that fully leveraged the CXP standard's potential and recently introduced two new cameras: the EoSens 2.0CXP2 and the EoSens 1.1CXP2," said a company spokesperson.

The original version of CXP supported a maximum data rate of 6.25 Gbps, or approximately 6x faster than GigE Vision and 40% faster than USB3. Version 2.0 of CXP added two more speeds, 10 Gb/s (CXP-10) and 12.5 Gb/s (CXP-12), that support higher resolution cameras at double the speed of the original and in a platform that is easily adapted and scaled to meet rapidly changing requirements. For example, using one camera and four CXP-12 connections, a CXP2.0 link is able to support data transmission rates up to 50 Gbit/s.

The Mikrotron EoSens 2.0CXP2 model features a 2 megapixel LUX19HS image sensor with 10 µm pixel in 4/3" optical format. It delivers 2,220 frame-per-second (FPS) at 1920 x 1080 resolution and a maximum of 18,100 FPS at 128 x 128 and has 60 dB dynamic range. "Its robust, compact (80 mm x 80 mm x 53 mm) footprint allows integration into almost any industrial, medical or military application, no matter how small," said the spokesperson. The Mikrotron EoSens 1.1CXP2 is identical to the 2.0CXP2 except for its 1.1 megapixel resolution. Depending on system requirements, both cameras are available in monochrome or color.

Since many legacy industrial systems use analog cameras running on coaxial cables, these systems can be upgraded with Mikrotron CXP cameras without the need to replace the entire cabling infrastructure with Ethernet cables. "Coaxial cables have inherently excellent protection against electromagnetic/radio frequency interference, reducing risks of downtime or latencies. System integrators value CXP's support of coaxial cable distances of 100 meters and beyond, operating at different speeds and resolutions. CXP offers greater flexibility for system integrators who previously were handcuffed to a few meters if using Camera Link or USB3," said the spokesperson.
