With uEye Warp10, IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH is releasing a new camera family that, thanks to 10GigE, transmits data in the Gigabit Ethernet-based network at a very high frame rate and practically no delay. The first models with the IMX250 (5MP), IMX253 (12MP) and IMX255 (8.9MP) sensors from the Sony Pregius series are now available.
Compared to 1GigE cameras, the new models deliver up to ten times the transmission bandwidth; they are also approximately twice as fast as cameras with USB 3.0 interfaces. The advantages become especially apparent when scenes are captured, monitored and analysed in all detail and with no motion blur. Consequently, applications such as inspection applications on the production line with high clock speeds or image processing systems in sports analysis profit from the fast data transfer.
The GigE Vision standard-compliant industrial cameras allow high-speed data transfer over cable lengths of up to 100m with no repeaters or optical extenders via standard CAT6A cables (under 40m also CAT5E) with RJ45 connectors. The robust cameras are offered with C-mount lens holders. The company is already working on further models. In the future, versions with a TFL mount (M35 x 0.75) will also be offered for use with extremely high-resolution sensors up to 45MP. The IDS peak software development kit supports the cameras.
