Clear pictures even with
dazzling light sources
Extreme lighting conditions, such as those found in the
metalworking sector, place high demands on camera technology.
The Solvido SLC-100P Camera uses the patented Digital Pixel
System (DPS®) technology and delivers clear and high-contrast
pictures. Solvido - Technology for bright minds.
Application: Joining Technology Technology for bright minds
Application: Joining Technology
Continuous monitoring is important for automated welding
(joining) so that action can be taken immediately and material
losses prevented during malfunctions. But the very hot and
bright environment requires use of a special camera that
can cope with the extremely bright light and heat conditions.
The Solvido SLC-100P was developed especially for this
application. Enclosed by a sturdy aluminium frame, it has
a Pixim DPS® sensor that delivers outstanding imagery in
environments with extreme light sources and strong contrasts.
The Digital Pixel System® technology (DPS®) was developed
and patented by the American company Pixim and Stanford
University. it enables 388,800 pixels to act as continuous selfregulating
individual cameras. Whilst the conventional camera
technology only digitizes pictures after a series of processing
operations, DPS® technology digitizes the image immediately
thanks to an A/D converter (analogue to digital). The chip can
therefore assign an optimal exposure time to each individual
pixel, which considerable extends the dynamic range of the
camera. Further advantages of this technology: Bright pixels
caused by load overflow into neighbouring pixels (blooming) are
sharply reduced. Equally, there is no smear effect (highlights).
For applications in extreme conditions, the choice of the other
system components is important. The camera, lens, monitor and
recording technology must be precision-matched to each other.
SPECIALIST FOR IMAGING IN EXTREME LIGHT SITUATIONS
When, for instance, the very high environmental temperatures
in the proximity of blast furnaces exceed the 50°C specified
for the Solvido SLC-100P, the camera must have additional
cooling. And we recommend the ESH-20 water-cooled
stainless steel housing from eneo for performing this job.
The water flow can be regulated to maintain the internal
temperature below the 50°C specified for the camera – even
at environmental temperatures reaching 400°C.
In many cases, quality assurance and traceability require
recording of procedures with automatic logging and recording
of important additional information such as the date and time.
When this is your requirement, you can then fall back on
Videor’s wide range of hard disk recorders and PC-supported
recording systems produced by renowned manufacturers.
The Videor portfolio also offers an impressive selection
when it comes to choosing the ideal lens. For the Solvido
SLC-100P the decision is normally made to opt for a high
quality industrial lens with a fixed focal length and manual
iris. Because, particularly in light conditions with fast and
extreme changeability the mechanically controlled iris
blades on a DC lens often react too slowly. The system
around the Solvido SLC-100P is rounded off by suitable TFT
monitors that can, for instance, be equipped with a rugged
real-glass front screen.
