GigE Vision Camera
The Mercury 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. The camera is available with and without Power over Ethernet (PoE).
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
- Only one cable is required to connect the device (in case of PoE)
- Dimensions are: 29x29x29mm (without PoE), 29x29x38 mm (with PoE)
- Optional hardware triggering
If more details are required, the manual can be consulted.

A black and white camera, also known as a monochrome camera, offers advantages in a variety of applications. While the market for security and telephony focusses on color cameras, the industrial market utilizes the advantages of black and white cameras. Black and white cameras are very light sensitive, provide sharp images and reduces data compared to color. This makes it ideal for the processing of images. By selecting the right color as your light source and lens filter, a black and white camera can utilize the product its characteristics. Hereby men can create images with a large contrast and a high resolution.
For single application we always advice to buy a GigE camera with PoE. A PoE GigE camera is easier to connect so you can quickly acquire the first images, because only a single ethernet cable has to be connected to supply both power and data to the camera (when using a PoE ethernet switch or PoE inserter). However due to price difference, as soon as volume is expected, the standard GigE camera without PoE is a very interesting option. The power of the standard GigE camera is supplied by the I/O cable. The standard GigE camera is cheaper, it gets less warm and is more compacter because it requires less electronics. However, for a standard GigE camera you will always need an I/O cable.
