MATRIX VISION has launched a cost-effective and waterproof variant of the mvBlueCOUGAR-X industrial camera to work in earth’s harshest conditions.
The IP67C – the C representing compact – illustrates its most important advantage. Waterproofing has been integrated into the standard housing to ensure that only a small amount of installation space is required. The plug connections can be screwed and there are two options for leak-tightness on the lens. Either a standard lens is used in connection with a protective tube available in various lengths (40 mm, 71 mm, 100 mm), or waterproof IP67 lenses are used. MATRIX VISION has added the latter product—from Kowa—to its portfolio as a waterproof BAM LS-VS-008 lens series.
Thanks to the various equipment options, the family of mvBlueCOUGAR-X Gigabit Ethernet cameras covers the majority of possible application areas. The camera has a large number of smart features such as flat field correction, colour correction, white balance, etc., which can be performed directly on the camera, thus relieving the host system.
The image memory within the camera ensures lossless image transmission and additionally serves as a buffer, which saves and outputs images in the camera with flexibility.
The camera is compatible with the GenICam and GigE Vision standards. Drivers are available for Windows and Linux. Moreover, the camera supports all third-party image processing libraries that are compatible with GigE Vision.
