GigE Vision 10Gigabit Ethernet industrial camera - mvBlueCOUGAR-XT

mvBlueCOUGAR-XT - CMOS 10GigE Vision cameras
  • High net data rate of up to 1245 MB/s
  • High-quality sensors with up to 24.6 MP
  • Compact IP67 housing &  & robust industrial connector
  • Power supply through PoE+
  • Precise synchronization with Precision Time Protocol (PTP) i.a.w. IEEE1588
  • Secure image transmission with 2048 MB image buffer
  • Completely identical API for Linux and Windows
  • Compatible with GenICam and GigE Vision

The GigE Vision compatible mvBlueCOUGAR-XT camera series allows you to use the performance of the state-of-the-art image sensor technology, like that of the Pregius S Gen4 CMOS line from Sony. With the global shutter technology with backside illumination, the Gen4 sensors have more precision and a higher resolution per sensor surface.
With PoE+ both the power supply and the data transmission are made possible via one cable connection, thus reducing the complexity of the wiring, as well as the necessary space for the installation.

The integrated image memory of 2048 MB ensures reliable data transmission. With protection class IP67, as well as industrial plug connections, the camera series is designed for use in harsh environments. It is also available with active air cooling.
