From the smallest housed camera with C-mount over 10GigE to AI

29-09-2021 | IDS | Test & Measurement

From precise monitoring to picking and automation, there are myriad applications that profit from reliable image information. With the introduction of uEye XCP, uEye XLE and Ensenso S, IDS demonstrates that industrial-grade image processing technology does not have to be costly. For users who require a camera for especially fast data transfer and also need high-resolution sensors, there will be the uEye Warp10 in future.

The company's uEye XCP is their smallest industrial camera with housing and C-mount offered in what is claimed to be the industry's smallest standard format. Initially, the USB3 camera will be offered with the 2.3MP AR0234 global shutter sensor and the 5MP AR0521 rolling shutter sensor from ON Semiconductor. Their cost-optimised design makes them excellent for high-volume and price-sensitive projects. The cameras provide a fully enclosed die-cast zinc housing measuring only 29mm x 29mm x 17mm. Their C-mount adapter enables the usage of common lens sizes and secures a favourable system price.

Its uEye XLE is ideal for anyone looking for cameras particularly designed for high-volume and price-sensitive projects. Due to different housing and lens holder variants, very compact dimensions and USB3 interface, the cameras can be readily integrated into any image processing system. Customers can select between models with plastic housing and C/CS mount or S-mount and board-level version with or without C/CS mount or S-mount lens holder. Offered with the 2.3MP sensor ON Semiconductor AR0234 and the light-sensitive 5MP sensor ON Semiconductor AR0521, other sensors will follow.

The uEye Warp10 is ideal for users with especially high demands on resolution, image quality and transmission speed. The company will launch industrial cameras with a 10GigE high-speed interface and various sensors named uEye Warp10. They can precisely capture even high-speed processing and forwarding the image information in the network without delay. They shine in sports analysis as well as in high-precision surveying and inspection tasks. The company aims to implement large-format sensors up to 45MP.

Its Ensenso S has been specifically designed for 3D applications that need budget-friendly, easy-to-integrate and industrial-grade camera technology. Particularly price-sensitive projects in logistics, automation or agriculture can now profit from industrial-grade 3D imaging. The models are furnished with an ultra-compact zinc die-cast housing (IP 65/67), a 1.6MP Sony sensor and an infrared LED laser and offer robust 3D information even in low ambient light.

IDS NXT ocean offers an embedded vision system with AI that becomes even more user-friendly. The company provides users with all the required and perfectly coordinated tools and workflows to achieve their own AI vision applications with no prior knowledge.
