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.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) for GigE is designed to provide both power and data communication over a standard Ethernet cable. This reduces the amount of cables and installation time, in applications that do not require a hardware trigger or I/O. When I/O is required in an application we advise to supply the camera via a I/O connector. The camera’s power usage is larger when using Power over Ethernet than via the I/O connector. The camera will generate extra heat when using PoE. A PoE GigE camera is larger than the version without PoE. An extra PCB is needed to separate the power of the Ethernet signal, and to convert the voltage to a lower voltage. Extra hardware is needed, which makes it more expensive than the version without PoE. The advantage of PoE is that installation is easier because less cables are required.
