Streaming Cameras Relish High-Speed Machine Vision Chores

Vision Research offers the Phantom S210 and S200, 2Gpx/sec (16 Gbps) cameras for high-speed industrial machine-vision applications. The S210 reaches 1,730 fps at full1.3Mpx resolution, while the S200 achieves 7,000 fps at full 0.3Mpx VGA resolution. Both cameras provide the frame rates and throughput needed for demanding machine vision applications across multiple industries.


The S210 and S200 both use up to four CoaXPress (CXP6) channels to reach 2Gpx/sec throughput. Both are GenICam compliant and stream directly into PCI Express frame grabbers. The cameras also feature a general-purpose input/output (GPIO), for fast and flexible signaling and synchronization. These include signals beneficial in standard high-speed applications, such as Time Code In/Out, along with a host of other signals commonly found in streaming applications, such as Trigger, strobe, and event marking.
