Industrial cameras have auto-focus and upright USB Type-C alignment

IDS Imaging Development Systems offers the uEye LE AF industrial cameras, with auto-focus function for sharp images even with varying object distances.

The uEye LE AF industrial cameras are available with 2.1 and 3.1 MP Sony sensors, and, for the first time, the company also offers models with upright USB Type-C alignment.

The new models join the existing uEye LE AF cameras with 6.4MP (IMX178, 58 frames per second) and 18.1MP (AR1820HS, 20 frames per second) sensors. The new models, the IMX290 (2.1MP and 120 frames per second) or IMX265 (3.1MP and 80 frames per second have a USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface. They also have USB Power Delivery which can be used, for example, to power an LED light source or a photoelectric sensor, and allow the use and control of liquid lenses.

The auto-focus function ensures 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 changes frequently, says IDS. The board-level cameras are therefore well suited for applications in logistics (e.g. for parcel sorting) or traffic monitoring.

They are compact, with dimensions of only 36 x 36 x 20mm, suitable for integration into small medical or industrial devices.

The industrial camera manufacturer IDS Imaging Development Systems develops high-performance, easy-to-use USB, GigE and 3D cameras with a choice of sensors and variants. The range of applications covers multiple non-industrial and industrial sectors in the field of equipment, plant and mechanical engineering. In addition to CMOS cameras, the company expands its portfolio with vision app-based, intelligent cameras. The IDS NXT image processing platform is programmable.

Since its foundation in 1997, IDS has developed into an independent, ISO-certified family business with more than 300 employees. The company’s headquarters are in Obersulm, Germany, and is both a development and production site. IDS is represented internationally with branches in the USA, Japan, South Korea and UK.
