Salamander and Feuersalamander protective enclosures

Salamander

The Salamander protective enclosure
Providing IP67 protection for compact cameras 47 x 29 mm to 40 x 40 mm (width x height) cross section, the Salamander series features a broadband, antireflective coated, anodised aluminium enclosure built with a robust extrusion profile.

Flexible camera orientation and positioning inside the housing
The camera is quickly and easily contained within the enclosure via a flexible mount, ensuring the lens always remains close to the front window. Turning the camera inside the housing allows simple correction of the image angle.

Passive cooling system
The enclosure passively cools the camera by working like a large heat sink and dissipating the heat to the outer housing. Whereas standard enclosures, without heat dissipation, can overheat the camera, AutoVimation's housing effectively lowers the camera temperature by around 12°C.

Available in various lengths starting at 130 mm, the camera can be easily installed into the enclosure with AutoVimation's patented Quicklock and heat guide mounting system. Mounting cameras of different heights is easily done by a combination of different Quicklock elements and are available for any camera height from 29 to 38mm. A wide range of mounting brackets allows users to adapt the camera installation to any application.

Conduit tubes and separable cable glands allow for the waterproof insertion of cables with various connectors up to a maximum diameter of 23 mm. Within the enclosure, the camera can be positioned anywhere along its central axis and at any required angle.

Salamander enclosures are based on the standardized “Mechanical Machine Vision Interface” (MMVI) developed by AutoVimation, which allows for all compatible image processing components to be connected directly with the enclosure and so eliminate the time-consuming manufacturing of dedicated light holders.

Key features

• Robust build withstands displacement forces of up to 3000 N • Small form factor in different lengths • Flexible camera angle and positioning
• Compatible with a large range of accessories • High chemical resistance • Flexible, fast and vibration-proof mounting
• Good heat dissipation - camera cooler inside than if free-mounted • IP67 protection - submersible to 1m up to an hour • Different rear wall options allowing large connectors and/or multiple cables*see below
• Room for large lenses and even ring lights • Large range of mounting brackets allowing for tailoring to requirements

Specifications: For all compact cameras with cross section of up to 40x 40mm

Salamander enclosures are suitable for a wide range of cameras including
AVT, JAI, Teledyne DALSA, Basler, iDS and most others

Mounting kits
Salamander enclosures attach to a machine frame with one of 11 mounting kits. Mounting kits consist of at least two parts
- an adapter plate that can be mounted directly to T- Slot profiles of a machine frame

- one or several mounting brackets to meet all adjustment requirements

Depending on the application, most of the mounting adapters and brackets may need to be combined and Adept Turnkey engineers can advise on a suitable configuration for your requirements

Feuersalamander stainless steel protective enclosures for food and pharmaceutical industries

Stainless steel, corrosion-resistant and "corner free" - for compact cameras up to 40 x 40 mm

Electropolished, compact (only 69mm in diameter) IP66/IP67 food-graded V4A stainless steel enclosure for camera up to 38 x 38 mm across section made without edges and corners and especially suited to the food and pharmaceutical industries. Specifically designed for hygienic environments, these enclosures are especially corrosion resistant and feature a smooth surface where dirt and germs normally could accumulate.

Made for small and compact cameras, the Feuersalamander enclosures feature a flush front window and silicon seals and are built with the same, reliable heat-dissipation system, vibration-proof mount and flexible camera positioning as the Salamander enclosures. Additionally, the Feuersalamander can be ordered with a special pharmaceutical cable gland.

Passive cooling
Whereas other camera enclosures might increase the camera temperature, the Feuersalamander camera mounting system reduces the camera temperature by around 9°C due to the good thermal conductivity to the outer enclosure which works well despite stainless steel not being as efficient a thermal conductor compared with aluminium.

The Feuersalamander enclosure offers 150mm length space for camera, lens and connectors and using the Quick-Lock / Heat-Guide mounting system allows the camera to be placed in any position while keeping the lens in the correct place behind the front window, and at any rotational angle.

Four Feuersalamander housings are available including one designed for side entry. Special cable glands with sleeves are available for increased hygiene requirements.
