USB 3.0 industrial cameras have second generation sensors
USB 3.0 industrial cameras from IDS integrate second-generation CMOS sensors of Sony’s Pregius series. The 2/3inch IMX250 and IMX264 sensors provide a resolution of 5Mpixels (2456 x 2054). The company says that due to the advanced 3.45micro m pixel structure, they deliver excellent image quality and extremely low-noise images, even under low-light conditions.
The company’s Software Suite includes triggered linescan mode, multi AOI, and long exposure up to 30s.
Suitable applications are classical machine vision applications as well as inspection tasks on fast-moving objects, for applications in microscopy, or in the ITS market. The CMOS camera provides an integrated image memory, and it can be used flexibly due to its compact dimensions measuring only 29 x 29 x 29mm, the robust magnesium housing, and screw-on Micro USB 3.0 and Hirose connectors.
The Sony IMX250 global shutter CMOS sensor achieves a frame rate of 77frame/s in the camera model UI-3080CP; the Sony IMX264 reaches 36frame/s in the UI-3280CP.
