GigE Vision CameraThe Mercury 2 GigE camera series is an industrial vision camera, with a GigE interface. GigE is the most common interface used for cameras in traditional machine vision applications. For now, the camera is only available without Power over Ethernet (PoE). The Mercury 2 series have advanced features like decimation, binning, pixel skipping, reverse and digital shift. This model is interesting for you when your application complies with the following conditions:
- An industrial camera
- Maximum cable length of 100 meters
- Inexpensive and easy installation of cables
- Dimensions are: 29x29x29mm

Most cameras have even a much longer product life cycle. For more information about our product life cycle management, check this article.
Color industrial cameraAn industrial color camera makes use of a Bayer pattern to produce a colored image. The RGB value of every pixel is being calculated by taking the value of a pixel, in combination with all the values of neighboring pixels. This results into less sharp images than those of a monochrome camera.
Due to the RGB filter on the pixels, every single pixel, considering white light, captures on average 66% less photons than a monochrome camera. Which makes a color camera less light sensitive than a monochrome one. To compensate this, the following options are available: - Increase the amount of light
- Increase the gain
- Increase shutter speed / exposure time
- Select a more light sensitive sensor
- Select a more light sensitive lens
Industrial color cameras are used in applications where color information is important.
