Area Camera Series Adds GigE Vision Models

Teledyne DALSA expands is Genie Nano camera family with eight monochrome and color models built around SONY image sensors. They are reportedly the industry’s first 5-Gigabit GigE Vision cameras with resolutions from 3.2 Mpixels to 12 Mpixels with more models to follow before the end of the year, including a 5-Mpixel Polarized model. They also feature the 5GBASE-T link speed.


IEEE 802.3bz-2016 is the expanded standard for Ethernet over twisted pair copper wire at speeds of 2.5 Gbit/s and 5 Gbit/s. This creates intermediate speeds between existing standards 1-Gigabit Ethernet and 10-Gigabit Ethernet. The resulting standards are named 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T. 5GBASE-T technology allows Ethernet links to offer greater flexibility with new data rates of up to 5Gbps over commonly deployed Cat5e cabling. The technology boosts data throughput of up to 100 meters through twisted pair copper cabling.
