e-con Systems Launches IP67 Rugged GMSL2 Camera and Camera Kit Powered By NVIDIA Jetson Edge AI Platform

Industrial grade, 15 meters cable support, Full HD with built-in HDR, GMSL2, and deserializer interface board for NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Developer Kit

e-con Systems announced the launch of its STURDeCAM20 industrial grade GMSL camera and STURDeCAM20_CUXVR camera kit leveraging the capabilities of the NVIDIA Jetson edge AI platform.

According to the company, the new offerings accelerate time to market for customers developing and deploying ruggedized applications for industrial and outdoor environments such as autonomous mobile robots (AMR), delivery robots, sidewalk robots, blind spot cameras for large vehicles, mining vehicles, forklifts, surround view systems, and more.

The STURDeCAM20 is based on a Full HD CMOS sensor with an image signal processor (ISP) packed in an IP67 rated (water and dust proof) enclosure with operating temperature of -40 to 85°C. It ships with a 15-meter coaxial cable, enabling video streaming with low latency. The camera's single frame 3.0 um dual conversion gain pixel technology and 96 dB high dynamic range (HDR) delivers suitable images even in harsh outdoor conditions and low lighting environments.  

To speed up the development process for developers, e-con Systems also offers the fully integrated STURDeCAM20_CUXVR Camera Kit, comprising one STURDeCAM20 camera and a deserializer board that plugs into the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier developer kit. This allows developers to connect up to six STURDeCAM20 cameras and enables synchronized Full HD streaming at 30 fps simultaneously.

The STURDeCAM20_CUXVR camera kit is currently available for evaluation with the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Developer Kit.
