Basler integrates 18Mpixel image sensor in ace 2 camera series
Integrating Gpixel’s 18Mpixel GMAX2518 CMOS global shutter sensor in the ace 2 camera series, Basler said it is supporting the trend toward higher resolutions in smaller sensor formats.
The sensor has 4508 x 4096 pixels resolution and a pixel size of 2.5 x 2.5 micron in a one inch sensor format, enabling the ace 2 cameras to deliver good image quality, especially when combined with the matching Basler C11 lenses, said the company. The series joins the earlier ace 2 Gpixel models which have 5Mpixel GMAX2505 and 9Mpixel GMAX2509 sensors. The 18 Mpixel models are available with USB 3.0 and GigE interfaces in both mono and colour versions. The ace 2 Pro product line has a range of matched and tested vision products, as well as vTools for image processing functions within the pylon camera software suite.
With the help of powerful small pixels, ever higher resolutions can be achieved on smaller sensor formats. Basler expands the Basler ace 2 camera family with this latest series to offer a total of 110 models. The portfolio includes sensors from Gpixel and Sony, with resolutions from 2.3 to 24Mpixels and frame rates up to 160 frames per second.
