Subminiature industrial cameras and boards offer high-quality 5 Mpix CMOS sensors


MUNSTER, GERMANY, October 26, 2012 – Designed for OEMs wanting to add industrial imaging functionality to highly integrated machinery with tight space requirements, XIMEA GmbH’s xiMU line compact industrial cameras offer high-resolution 5 Mpix CMOS sensors with USB 2.0 data interface, and free application programming interfaces (APIs) for most commercial image processing systems in full metal housing enclosures and board-level as small as 13 x 13 x 3 mm.

The xiMU subminiature industrial camera line includes four models, all shipping in quantity today. The MU9PC-MBRD and MU9PM-MBRD models are board-level color and grayscale cameras, respectively, based on the APTINA MT9P031 2592 x 1944-pixel CMOS sensor with Rolling shutter with global reset release.


The MU9PC-MH and MU9PM-MH models also use the APTINA sensor in both color and grayscale configurations but include a full metal housing that increases the dimensions of the camera from the 13 x 13 x 3 mm board-level camera size to 15 x 15 x 13 mm with M12 lens mount.


All of the MU9 cameras offer ~70 dB of linear dynamic range with a signal-to-noise ratio of ~38 dB, 5 V USB 2.0 data interface, and 2IN/2OUT general-purpose input/output for camera control and triggering. Color cameras use an RGB Bayer Matrix filter.

Connecting the xiMU series cameras to industrial data processing systems, OEM equipment, and PCs is greatly simplified with the inclusion APIs for the most common image processing software, including programs such as VisionPro, MIL, LabVIEW, MVTec’s Halcon, Tordivel’s Scorpion Vision Software, OpenCV, AForge.Net, and many more.


In essence - Subminiature series industrial cameras offer high-quality monochrome and color 5 Mpix CMOS sensors, USB 2.0 interface, and APIs for more than 30 leading image processing libraries in both board-level and enclosed camera configurations which simplify OEM Integration.
