The GC640 is an ultra-compact, VGA-resolution, high-performance machine vision camera with Gigabit Ethernet interface (GigE Vision™). The GC640 runs 200 frames per second at VGA resolution (640x480), uncompressed, over its Gigabit Ethernet interface. The CMOS sensor is suitable for applications where speed or resistance to blooming are required. The GC640 works with standard gigabit Ethernet hardware and cables and can have cable lengths up to 100 meters (330 ft) long using conventional Cat5e network cabling. Applications for the GC640 include high-speed inspection, machine vision, optical character recognition, traffic imaging, robotics, and OEM applications.

Note to IE Users: If camera files are opening as text in your browser, you can cause them to instead download with an option to save as a file by associating .icd files in Windows to open in a program like Notepad. This will save you from having to copy text in the browser and manually create and save the file. Here are instructions to do this:
  • create a text file on your desktop and rename it to have the .icd extension (you may be alerted about the file type - just click Yes to continue)
  • right-click on your new file, select Open, and choose the option to "Select from a list of programs"
  • choose Notepad from the list of programs, select the option to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file", and open the file
  • Windows will now associate that file type with Notepad, and clicking Camera File links will download and save as desired
