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.”

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
