NET GmbH continues to expand its range of monochrome and colour IEEE1394 cameras. The new FOculus models offer the advantage of a user-friendly small body along with other additional features.

The new S-series (e.g. FO124SC) measures 29 x 44 x 63mm and is equipped with Sony CCD Matrix image sensors from 1/3” to 1/1.8”, as with the standard series (64 x 64 x 60mm). The cameras achieve resolutions from VGA (640 x 480) with up to 86fps, UXGA (1600 x 1200) with 16fps. The IEEE1394 connector can be locked with screws to withhold every environment.

Higher frame rates can be achieved by setting a ROI (Region of Interest) under Format 7 (e.g. selecting a window of 60 x 60 pixels to obtain 300 fps). Binning modes are also available (2 x 2 and 1 x 2). Binning is a useful option to obtain noise reduction or explicit light sensitivity. Furthermore, the camera runs two to four times faster with the reduced resolution.

All previous characteristics of the FOculus series like C-mount, progressive scan, external trigger, low smear, excellent anti-blooming, high sensitivity, variable shutter speed, as well as an adjustable low frame rate, sub-sampling and electronic shutter are still effective.
