Camera series for demanding industrial factory environments

The Forge 1GigE IP67 camera series is designed for reliability in demanding industrial factory automation environments

Teledyne FLIR has announced the Forge 1GigE IP67, the latest in its industrial camera series designed to perform in harsh industrial environments while ensuring highly efficient production capabilities.

The company says Forge 1GigE IP67 is the latest in its commitment to deliver advanced imaging systems for factory automation.

“We are proud to announce the launch of our latest machine vision product, exclusively designed for smart agriculture, food, and beverage industries,” said Sadiq Panjwani, General Manager at Teledyne FLIR IIS.

“Unlike general-purpose cameras in a crowded machine vision market, our solution is tailored to address the complexities of a specific industry. We focus on key markets, and develop solutions from the ground up, armed with a clear understanding of the market, customer partnerships, and technology innovation.”

The Forge 1GigE IP67 camera series has an IP67 cylindrical enclosure for optimal and easy system integration, simplified post operation washing, and the prevention of dirt accumulation. A wide selection of IP67 rated components are available with partners such as Smart Vision Lights and Components Express, LLC. (CEI) to create an entire IP67 vision ecosystem for customers.

With advanced on-camera features such as auto-brightness functions (AGC and Auto-Exposure), the new cameras dynamically adjust in variable and outdoor lighting conditions. The IEEE1588 protocol enables multi-camera image capture synchronisation, and Lossless Compression (LLC) provides higher frame rates and lower bandwidth requirements, maximising camera output without compromising image quality for high-speed applications.
