The Basler piA1600-35gс GigE camera with the KAI-2020 CCD sensor delivers 35 frames per second at 2 MP resolution.
Excellent Image Quality and Attractively Priced
The Basler pilot camera family is based on four selected Kodak CCD sensors and one Sony CCD sensor for exceptional image quality. Equipped with a GigE Vision compliant interface, these cameras take maximum advantage of Kodak and Sony sensor technology and can often substitute for more cost-intensive Camera Link cameras and frame grabbers. Because Basler pilot cameras use the same sensors currently used in existing Camera Link cameras, no optics changes are required.
For more flexibility, this series offers additional software features that can be integrated into the image processing software on a remote computer
Basler pilot cameras are a perfect fit for a variety of vision applications including semiconductor and component inspection, food inspection, manufacturing quality control, intelligent traffic systems, microscopy and medical imaging, biometrics, and many others.
Your benefits include:
- Resolutions from VGA to 5 megapixels
- 100 meter cable length provided by Gigabit Ethernet to give you the highest flexibility
- Cost-effective Gigabit Ethernet interface does not need a frame grabber
- Up to 12 bit depths and no bandwidth limitation on 8 bit data flow inside the camera
- Field-proven Basler pylon driver package with both filter and performance drivers
- Compliant with the newest vision industry standards including GenICam, GigE Vision, and EMVA 1288
- 100% quality checked and calibrated to give you consistent performance and reliability
Outstanding Image Quality
The Basler pilot family is equipped with four different Kodak CCD sensors and one Sony CCD sensor with each camera available in mono or color. These sensors were selected to provide outstanding image quality in combination with the Basler pilot’s read-out and processing electronics. For precise imaging results, all Basler pilot cameras run in progressive scan mode.
Excellent Tap Balance
Basler has leveraged its years of experience in balancing the output from imaging sensors with two taps, so customers can expect a perfectly balanced, homogenous image. This technological advantage has already impressed many customers who use these Basler pilot cameras. All Basler pilot cameras have shown exceptionally good results compared to competitive cameras based on the same sensors. The following drawing shows the effect.
Precise Sensor Alignment
In addition to Basler’s standard CTT+ automated quality assurance and calibration system, the pilot camera family is tested and measured with another production tool. This unique tool is an ultrahigh precision sensor alignment device. The device automatically mounts the sensor board on the camera’s front module in six degrees of freedom with reference to the optical axis. This ensures a constant depth of focus over the whole sensor and guarantees the best imaging results, even with sensors that have pixels smaller than 5 μm, like the piA2400gm/gc has.
Software Makes Image Processing Easy
The Basler pilot family comes with a fully tested package of software, the pylon driver package, that lets you easily evaluate and integrate pilot cameras. The package can be downloaded from Basler ‘s website. It includes a Viewer tool and the software development kit (SDK).
Basler pylon Driver Package
Basler provides its own fully tested Gigabit Ethernet drivers for the Basler pilot camera family compatible with the GigE Vision standard. To give you maximum flexibility, Basler provides two different drivers. The Filter Driver can be easily used with common Gigabit Ethernet network cards or with Gigabit Ethernet ports that are part of the computer‘s motherboard. By using the performance driver, even demanding applications with multiple cameras, high data rates, or very strict real-time requirements can be supported. When the performance driver is used in combination with a dedicated Intel network interface card, the load on the host computer’s CPU is significantly reduced.
The pylon GigE Vision Performance Driver quickly separates incoming packets carrying image data from other traffic on the network and makes the data available for use by your vision application while requiring the lowest CPU resources. This driver can only be used with network cards that include specific Intel chipsets. The pylon GigE Vision Filter driver supports all kinds of hardware, common GigE network cards, and GigE ports on your motherboard as well. The pylon IEEE 1394b driver gives you access to a well-established interface technology. The pylon Camera Link
Configuration driver offers a comfortable access to all camera parameters of Basler’s latest Camera Link families aviator, ace, and racer.
to set up multi-camera systems easily via local network boundaries. The pylon SDK supports any type of application development. The pylon package contains the following main modules. Each
one can be individually selected/unselected during the installation process, preventing the installation of unneeded modules on your system.
- GigE Vision Filter Driver
- GigE Vision Performance Driver
- IEEE 1394 Driver
- Camera Link Serial Communication Driver
- pylon Viewer
- IP Configuration Tool
- pylon SDK for all Cameras; C,C++, C# and VB6 (the ‘pylon for
- Linux’ Version only supports the GigE interface via a C++ API)
The pylon driver package can be downloaded for free from our website. For more information on the installation process, refer to the pylon Installation Guide. The helpful pylon Release Notes
contain all improvements and bug fixes since the first pylon version.
