|New GigE Industrial Cameras From IDS For Use In Harsh Environments|
The GigE uEye FA camera series from industrial camera manufacturer IDS Imaging Development Systems is designed for use in the harshest industrial environments. The camera housing, lens barrels and connectors meet IP65/67 requirements, and protect the whole camera system from dirt, dust, water splashes or cleaning agents as well as accidental shifting of the optics.
This new camera series will feature the latest CMOS sensors from Sony, ON Semiconductor and e2v offering a choice of resolutions. The first model in the range will be equipped with a 2.3 Mpixel (1936 x 1216 pixel) IMX249 global shutter CMOS sensor from the Sony PREGIUS series. The sensor offers an excellent image quality, and sets new standards in terms of light sensitivity, dynamic range and colour reproduction. The cameras deliver great image quality with 41 fps at full resolution, even in low-light conditions.
The screw-on connectors also meet the most demanding industry requirements – an 8-pin M12 connection with X coding for data transmission and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and an 8-pin Binder connector for GPIO, trigger and flash are available. An extensive range of accessories, including cables suitable for use as drag chains, and various screw-on options enhance versatility and facilitate integration.
The new camera is ideally suited for multi-camera operation, with an integrated image memory that decouples image acquisition from image transfer. Internal camera functions such as pixel preprocessing, LUT or gamma minimise the processing power required.
All models in the uEye FA family are available with the proven IDS Software Suite or with support for the GigE Vision standard. The IDS Software Suite provides Plug & Play access to a host of sensor features together with easy handling.
