New sensors added to Giganetix GigE Vision cameras
Expanded portfolio now includes Truesense Imaging (Formerly Kodak) sensors using GigE communications.
Framos announces Smartek’s new extended series of low cost Giganetix GigE cameras, which now supports 6 sensor variants from Truesense Imaging (formerly Kodak). These are GC1021M/C 1024 x 1024 @ 61 fps, GC1601M/C 1600 x 1200 @ 35 fps and the GC1921M/C 1920 x 1080 @ 33 fps. This comes along with an increased bit depth option of 14bits.
These fully GigE Vision compliant cameras have a compact 35x35x48mm housing for simple integration into existing and space restrictive systems.
Smartek has applied its experience and expertise to these cameras offering superior image quality with minimal thermal noise, as with its existing Aptina and Sony based cameras.
Smartek uses industrial standards such as C-mount, RJ45 and Hirose connections, with CAT5e or CAT6 cables to reduce overall cost without compromising quality.
Chris Baldwin, who recently joined Framos Electronics Ltd to head-up the imaging business for the UK, Ireland and Nordic countries, commented, “Framos is expanding its product portfolio and market share, by focusing on high quality service and support. It is great news to have such exciting product additions to an already impressive line up.”

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
