Baumer presents two new 65MP cameras of the LX series with 10GigE interface and the GMAX3265 sensor from Gpixel (dynamic range 66dB). Exposure times of 19µs reduce motion artifacts of fast objects. Thanks to the integrated EF mount, the Canon EF lenses can be adjusted on the software side via Baumer GAPI, Baumer neoAPI or third-party software to dynamically adapt focus and aperture to applications. Start of series production is 2rd quarter 2021.
The 2020 Mars Rover mission will have 23 cameras on board. Descent cameras will help pilot the rover’s descent to the Martian surface. Engineering cameras will allow the rover to navigate the rocks and dust that cover the planet. And finally, scientific cameras will make observations and help collect samples.
