A single software interface for all cameras in an application, including specialized devices
The Visiosens VF Camera Platform now features a USB3.0 super-speed interface and Sony’s ICX445 CCD sensor-based camera.

FRAMOS, a developer of image-processing technology, introduced its Visiosens VF camera series – a customizable image-capture platform with more than 140 camera variants per image sensor. Its new features include the Mini-B USB2.0 and the latest Micro USB3.0, super-speed interface with up to 5 Gbps as well as the latest Sony ICX445 CCD sensor-based camera.

The Visiosens platform concept provides a single software interface for all cameras in an application, including specifically customized devices. The platform comprises a growing number of image sensors, a variety of output interfaces, complementary assembly concepts, mounts, filters, and an optional LED ring with seven wavelength options. For all variants, the user and system interface is built on a unified, future-proof, cross-platform software development kit based on the latest .NET technology and compatible with Windows and Linux.

The robust camera housing is specifically designed for industrial systems as well as for microscopy. It offers multiple mounting options on each side and the front face, which are all symmetrical to the optical axis of the sensor.

A choice of C-, CS- or M12-mount options are available for all models. The optional LED ring, integrated in the housing and connected to the 8-pin I/O port, with 3 IN and 3 OUT ports saves money and space.

The VF-Series offers a range of cameras designed for industrial applications, equipped with a growing range of both CCD and CMOS sensors of various resolutions from VGA (0.4) up to 10 Mega-pixels.

The single-board design for the USB2.0 and the dual-board design with native USB3.0 chipset both enjoy fully owned USB2.0 and USB3.0 drivers.
