Since its introduction at VISION 2012, Allied Vision’s Mako camera series has successfully established itself in the market as an entry-level digital camera offering an unbeatable price-performance ratio. At this year’s VISION show, the leading camera manufacturer expands the Mako range with four new models, each of which address specific applications needs.
Mako G-030: High-Speed GigE with more than 300 frames per second
The Mako G-030 targets industrial inspection applications with a high throughput. It features the new CMV300 CMOS sensor from CMOSIS. This global shutter imager with fast readout allows for a frame rate of up to 309 fps at full VGA resolution. Thanks to its High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode and built-in defect pixel correction, the Mako G-030 delivers excellent image quality.
Dynamic Duo: Mako G-050 and Mako G-095 with new CCD sensors
Allied Vision integrated two new Sony CCD sensors with a very high sensitivity and outstanding dynamic range into the Mako series. The Mako G-050 features the ICX693 with 0.5 Megapixels and the Mako G-095 the ICX692 with 0.9 Megapixels/720p HD resolution. Both sensors outperform comparable sensors on all major sensitivity and image quality criteria: dark noise, quantum efficiency, dynamic range, and full-well/saturation capacity. The best part is: they also deliver higher frame rates for even more performant imaging systems.
With their high dynamic range, these two new Mako models are ideally suited for image-processing applications in low-light conditions, for example in robotics, microscopy or surveillance.
Big resolution for small cost: Mako G-503
With 5 Megapixels, the Mako G-503 is the new top-resolution camera in the Mako family. It is fitted with a rolling shutter CMOS sensor from Aptina and delivers 14 fps at full resolution. This new camera the best choice for users looking for a high resolution at an affordable price for applications in which precision is key.
