Cameras offer sharp images even with varying object distances

IDS Imaging Development Systems has extended its selection of automatically focusable board-level cameras. Due to its practical autofocus function, the uEye LE AF industrial cameras provide perfectly focused images even with constantly changing object distances. The camera models feature a practical autofocus function.


The company now provides further camera variants with 2.1MP and 3.1MP Sony sensors which afford more flexibility in terms of application design and camera integration. The company also provides models with upright USB Type-C alignment in this product family for the first time.


As well as the previously available cameras with 6.4MP (IMX178, 58fps) and 18.1MP (AR1820HS, 20fps) sensors, clients can now also buy models with 2.1MP (IMX290, 120fps) or 3.1MP (IMX265, 80fps). All cameras offer a USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface, USB Power Delivery - which can be employed, for example, to power an LED light source or a photoelectric sensor - and support the use and control of liquid lenses.


The autofocus function assures sharp images in the blink of an eye, even if the lens is not physically accessible or if the distance between the lens and the object alters constantly. The board-level cameras are, therefore, especially well-suited for applications in fields including logistics or traffic monitoring. Due to their compact design with dimensions of just 36mm x 36mm x 20mm, they also demonstrate their strengths in embedded vision systems. This means that they are also attractive for integration into small medical or industrial devices.
