The picoCam2 GigE vision-compatible camera family is ideally suited to applications where space is restricted. So that it can be used in industrial environments, the picoCam2 has a screw-fit RJ45 GigE interface – the standard for industrial image processing – as well as industry-grade plug connectors for the voltage supply and trigger signals. As an alternative, it is also possible to operate it with just one cable measuring up to 100 m in length using Power over Ethernet (PoE). The picoCam2 is available with 1, 3 or 5 megapixel resolution in color and monochrome variants. CMOS image sensors use global shutter technology and enable multiple image sections (AOI). Image recording and transmission are decoupled in the internal 126 MB memory bank, meaning multi-camera applications are supported.
