Toshiba Imaging’s New, 3-CMOS HD Video Camera Features USB3.0 Option

The addition of a front panel freeze frame and long exposure mode up to 1 second (60 frames), makes the new camera configuration especially well-suited for scientific imaging and microscopy applications.

February 3, 2015 - Irvine, CA - Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc.'s Imaging Systems Division, (www.toshibacameras.com), announces the IK-HD5U, its first high-definition, 3-CMOS video camera with full frame rate HD output via USB3.0. The new progressive-scan full-HD 1080p/1080i video camera features both DVI-D and USB3.0 outputs for added versatility. The addition of a front panel freeze frame and long exposure mode up to 1 second (60 frames), makes the new camera configuration especially well-suited for scientific imaging and microscopy applications.


The 3-chip video camera delivers exceptional color accuracy and sharp, full-HD resolution, 1920 x 1080, at 59.94 frames per second (fps) providing blur-free, full motion output via both DVI and USB3.0. Toshiba Imaging's IK-HD5U is compatible with its IK-HD5H 3-CMOS camera head which features a removable optical low pass filter (OLPF) for dual-mode imaging applications. The dual mode can easily switch between visible light and near-infrared (NIR) visualization. Ideal for any high-definition video application, the IK-HD5U also works well in imaging tasks that use fluorescing agents. Its innovative imaging capabilities are very well-suited as a component of brightfield microscopy imaging, surgical microscopy, NIR inspection, scientific, and defense imaging systems.

Toshiba Imaging Systems will premiere the new IK-HD5U at Medical Design and Manufacturing (MD&M) West, Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California, February 10-12, 2015. Please stop by booth #1689 for a demonstration.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
