Double-rate technology
Recent advancements in CMOS image sensors has made them a mature technology with more developing potential than their CCD counterparts.

State-of-the-art CMOS imagers with active pixels are unsurpassed in terms of their extraordinarily high-dynamic properties, their antiblooming resistance and their readout speeds (up to 60 MHz per output channel). Further key advantages are the ability to assess only parts of an image (ROI) and of integrating functionality on the chip. Their ability to manage high frame rates take CMOS imagers to the forefront of high-speed image capture and image analysis. The combination of CMOS technology's many advantages can drastically reduce the overall implementation cost of a vision system.

Recognising the requirements for applications needing fast motion-analysis, Photonfocus, uses a proprietory modulation algorithm to double the maximum frame rate and incorporates a double bandwidth for data transmission via the standardised GigE interface

The Double Rate camera technology, which is based on the standard implementation of the GigE interface and standard GigE-Vision and GenICam software protocols, enables standard tools and libraries to be used in high-speed applications. It overcomes the drawback of link aggregation and enables frame rates of 577 fps at VGA resolution and 204 fps at 960 x 960 pixels to be achieved.

An added advantage of Photonfocus' technology is the camera's capacity to save unmodified image formats and using half the storage space compared with standard solutions.

Suitable for single or multiple camera setups, the camera is perfect for deployment in areas such as bionic, sports or bio-mechanical analysis and process failure analysis; eg burst or fracture of tools, failure of handling systems or break-down of packaging systems - all these applications needing the high frame rates provided by CMOS technology while the combination of the GigE interface and the standard software protocol, GeniCam, eliminates the complications of cameras adopting the Link aggregation solutions.

In image analysis applications, near-infra-red markers are often used to enable data capturing and the high quantum efficiency of the sensor used in the DR1-D1312-200-GB-8 is the key to the good image quality produced by the camera. For applications working on higher wave lengths (e.g. in the near infrared area) a specific NIR sensor can be used in the same camera type.
