Introducing Our *NEW* NightHawk

Avalon’s MoldWatcher solution has gotten easier with the new automated camera – NightHawk. Available for injection molds and die cast machines, our new IP based automated camera touts several advanced features. 

Here are some advantages:

  • No more manual adjusting of the lens.  Zoom, Aperture, Focus and Gain are controlled through software on the vision computer. This is especially helpful when installing on larger molding presses.
  • The Gig-E 2.3 MP camera has a resolution of more than 6 times previous models with 1920 x 1200 Pixels for better quality image analysis.
  • The Ethernet camera cable length can be extended to any desired length because the camera is POE (Power Over Ethernet)
  • The NightHawk has a more rugged enclosure than previous models for tough environmental conditions.

The NightHawk can be purchased as an upgrade for our current users who would prefer the automated focusing advantage* and is a great option for our future Avalon customers.
