The Amazon GigE Series currently consists of 14 Sony CCD sensors providing a wide range of GigE Vision cameras, and with still more to come.
The Amazon series of cameras are compliant with both Gigabit Ethernet and with the GigE Vision standard.
Fairly new in the image processing industry, GigE is gaining more interest thanks to users who are familiar with the Ethernet interface and technology.
This new interface is expected to lift the barriers of bandwidth limitation found in other interfaces such as FireWire and USB 2.0. It also resolves the limitation of cable length by supporting 100 meter distance with conventional CAT-5 cable.
The new GigE vision camera not only supports the traditional Machine Vision applications; but it also supports intelligent traffic systems, medical imaging, high-tech security and more.
