Four cameras have IMX287 and IMX273 sensors for fast frame rates

Four ace U cameras have been introduced by Basler. The four GigE models extend the ace U product line in the range of lower resolutions up to 1.6Mpixels.

The models feature resolutions of VGA and 1.6Mpixels and are in production now. They are equipped with the IMX287 and IMX273 sensors from Sony’s Pregius series and deliver up to 291 frames per second.

The IMX273 sensor offers image quality, high speeds and low noise, while the IMX287 sensorhas twice the pixel size with an edge length of 6.9 micron, for an increased saturation capacity and a higher dynamic range with the same sensitivity and also low noise, says Basler.

Both sensors feature the short exposure time mode, which enables extremely short exposure times of up to one microsecond, making the cameras particularly attractive for applications with fast movement, such as in the print sector as well as used as upgrades for CCD cameras with low resolutions.

The four ace U GigE cameras include the feature set PGI, a combination of 5×5 debayering, colour-anti-aliasing, denoising and improved sharpness. The models also offer powerful GigE Vision 2.0 features such as PTP.

Basler manufactures cameras and camera accessories for a variety of markets, including industry, medicine and traffic. The company’s product portfolio encompasses area scan and line scan cameras in compact housing dimensions, camera modules in board level variants for embedded solutions, and 3D cameras. The pylon software development kit includes accessories, including several developed specially for Basler.
