The new uEye XLE camera family from IDS has been specially developed for high-volume and price-sensitive projects
Space-saving design, a practical USB3 interface and the support of the USB3 Vision Standard mean that its new industrial cameras can be easily integrated into any machine vision system says IDS. Machine and system builders can choose between single-board cameras either with or without C-/CS-mount or S-mount as well as variants with a coated plastic housing. The company says that the first models will be equipped with the light-sensitive 5 MP sensor ON Semiconductor AR0521.
Jürgen Hejna, Product Manager at IDS says that the cameras show their strengths in classic industrial applications such as surface inspection. Thanks to their compact dimensions, he states that the models fit into the smallest of spaces, for example as embedded vision solutions with a price-optimised design that makes them interesting for applications where costs are a primary. With the latter in mind the company also offers a large number of inexpensive lenses for the cameras.
All uEye XLE models feature a USB3 interface (SuperSpeed USB, 5 Gpbs) and are stated to be 100 percent GenICam-compliant. The cameras can be used with any software that supports the USB3 Vision Standard. For an optimal user experience, the company recommends the use of IDS peak. The free SDK includes all necessary components from source code samples to transport layer, so that customers can start developing their own applications right away.
