GigE vision business class cameras delivered at economy prices
Framos’ GigE Vision Smartek camera series allows for seamless integration in existing cost-sensitive systems.
Framos’ Smartek low cost GigE camera series delivers essential features to design engineers and systems integrators to master demanding machine vision applications. The fully GigE Vision compliant hardware and driver interface combined with a compact 35x35mm housing footprint allow for seamless integration in existing cost-sensitive systems.
Smartek offers image quality with minimal thermal noise, low power consumption and a comprehensive feature set combined with a fine selection of Aptina CMOS and Sony CCD image sensors. Trigger latency of ~2µs allows for optimal synchronization of camera arrays with strobe illumination.
Throughout the design of these cameras, utilisation of industrial standards (C-mount, Hirose-plug, RJ45-plug for CAT5e or CAT6 cables) enables reduction of the total costs of your machine vision system.
Additional key features and benefits include high quality video resolution and versatile interfacing with up to 14 bits per pixel A/D conversion and opto-isolated inputs and outputs. The series also supports full Plug & Play capability for camera attachment via an Ethernet network. GigE Vision and GenCam compliant hardware and software provide high flexibility including partial scan and ‘area of interest’ features.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
