VRmTS-20 – Flexible Positioning in Small Devices

The German camera manufacturer VRmagic expands its portfolio with the VRmTS-20, a sensor module with small dimensions.


The VRmTS-20 is an external sensor module for the D3 intelligent camera platform. With its compact dimensions of 26 x 26 mm and the flexible cable connection to the camera base unit, the module is particularly suitable for applications with limited or angled space. The sensor module is available as OEM version and as COB S-mount M12 version with different lenses and filter glasses.

The sensor module is equipped with the CMOS sensor AR0134 from Aptina. The 1/3" sensor can capture 40 frames per second at a resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels. “The AR0134 with 1.3 megapixels and global shutter is characterized by an excellent price-performance ratio” says Oliver Menken, Director of VRmagic Imaging. “In combination with the small size of the VRmTS-20 sensor module, applications in the field of machine vision and factory automation can be implemented in a flexible and cost-efficient way.”

Up to six VRmTS-20 sensor modules can be connected to a multi-sensor camera base unit via flex-foil-cables. The modules can be positioned freely and deliver pixel-synchronous images from different perspectives. Remote-sensor cameras can be equipped with flex-foil-cables or alternatively with round cables.
