The 8k model with a Camera Link interface even reaches a line rate of up to 80kHz. Highly sensitive CMOS technology provides for excellent image quality, low noise characteristics, and a quantum efficiency of approximately 60 percent. What's more, the CMOS sensors use very little power. Their innovative heatdissipation concept allows the cameras to stay much cooler than comparable line scan cameras, and gives a better image as well. With the new 6k, 8k, and 12k racer models, users from many different markets and applications will easily find a racer camera for their needs. Basler's high-resolution racer cameras are especially suitable for inspection of continuous materials, such as in web inspection, flat panel display inspection, and solar inspection. The 2k and 4k Camera Link models feature Power over Camera Link (PoCL), with data and power carried by the same cable. This reduces costs for accessories and system complexity, and creates a simpler, more reliable system. In addition, Mini Camera Link accessories are becoming less expensive than regular Camera Link equipment, which allows costs to drop even further, especially in larger systems. Basler Configurable CaD MoDelS For brushless DC motors. PITTMAN Motors, a unit of AMETEK Precision Motion Control, has introduced configurable 3D CAD model downloads for its entire offering of brushless DC motors. The 3D model system is an online system through the PITTMAN website that allows an engineer to fully configure a motor with a wide variety of optional components, such as planetary and spur gearboxes, brakes, and encoders. The online 3D model system makes it very easy for an engineer to evaluate different part configurations in a virtual environment. A customer can configure a part by choosing such parameters as motor voltage, torque rating, gearbox ratio, and encoder resolution. After configuring a part as many times as necessary, the file can then be downloaded in the most commonly used CAD software file formats including Solid Works, CATIA, and Pro/E. The file also can be downloaded in a vendor-neutral format, such as an .IGS or .STP file. The system allows the creation of a fully dimensioned outline drawing generated directly from the configured CAD model. After a virtual configuration is created using the online 3D model system, a product engineer can work closely with PITTMAN applications engineers to create a more customized application-specific solution. Options include optimized motor windings, unique shaft configurations, various bearing systems, output devices such as pinions and pulleys, special lead wire assemblies, and various other features. PITTMAN offers a wide range of brushless DC motors, which are available in a variety of frame sizes, torque, and power ratings. Frame sizes range from 0.375inch (9.5mm) for miniature high-speed brushless DC motors up to 5.25-inch (133mm) for high- torque brushless DC motors with integrated controllers. Output torque ranges from 0.3 oz-inch (0.002 Nm) to 1824 oz-inch (12.88 Nm) without a gear box. Both planetary and spur gearboxes are available for most brushless S32 A u t o m At io n & Co nt r o l / A S up p le me nt to De Sign ne wS A P RIL 2013
