IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH is offering three new USB 3.0 camera families in addition to its very successful USB 3 uEye CP series, which was first introduced to the market in 2011. Whether it’s the space-saving first, real single-board USB 3.0 industrial camera or the light yet also robust housed versions: the new families are suitable for all those cost-critical applications in automation, robotics, print and packaging industry, apparatus and medical engineering. Integration and camera handling is easy thanks to USB’s Plug&Play and IDS’ sophisticated and interface independent Software Suite.
The housed USB 3 uEye LE camera version: focusing on essential features, the camera is cost-effective. The camera is not only very light with its plastic housing, it is also robust enough for industrial environments. It is suitable for a multitude of applications with its C/CS-Mount lens mount, which also allows for wide-angled lenses.
The first real single-board USB 3.0 industrial camera: the USB 3 uEye LE board-level camera is easily integrated thanks to its tiny size, and is hence suitable for embedded systems, medical engineering and instrumentation. The camera also offers exceptional connectivity with its 8 pin connector with 5V power supply, trigger, flash, 2 GPIOs and I2C bus for triggering external devices. Benefit from cost-effective lenses with the board-level version with S-Mount lens mount.
Weighing in at only 41g with a size of 47×46×28mm, the USB 3 uEye ML is suitable for all space-critical applications. Yet the camera also offers all benefits one would expect from a proper industrial camera. The USB 3 uEye ML is suited for a wide range of applications thanks to two GPIOs, opto-decoupled trigger and flash. Its C/CS lens mount allows for a selection of lenses, wide-angle lenses included. Camera integration is particularly easy – based on Plug&Play and USB’s one-cable system for data transfer and power supply.
All models are equipped with highly sensitive CMOS sensors from Aptina and e2v with resolutions from 1.3 to 5 Megapixel. In addition, IDS’ special implemented sensor features guarantee extra functionality and high-detail accuracy for light and speed-critical applications. e2v’s 1.3 Megapixel sensor is also available in a NIR enhanced version.
IDS makes switching from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 technology easy, thanks to the IDS Software Suite which works for all IDS cameras. In addition, the USB 3 uEye LE features the same footprint as the USB 2.0 model, hence upgrading to future-proof USB 3.0 technology is even easier.
