New Generation of Industrial Cameras

IDS has launched a newly developed generation of its uEye SE industrial camera family.

The camera is available as a GigE and USB 3.1 Type-C connection - in each case screw-on - as a housing version or as a board stack version, and with a broad range of CMOS sensors with rolling or global shutter. In conjunction with a comprehensive range of accessories (lenses, cables, etc.), this is an industrial camera suitable for many applications.

The first 25 models launched are versions with CMOS sensors from Sony (including Pregius IMX253, IMX304, IMX255 and IMX267 sensors with 8.9 and 12.3 mega pixel resolution), ON Semiconductor and e2v with rolling or global shutter.

The housing with C-mount lens connection has a robust design and is equipped with a dust-proof sensor seal. The cameras have a screw-on 8-pin Hirose connector for trigger and flash - both opto-isolated - and two GPIOs, which allow numerous additional application functions in an industrial setting. All camera models are also supplied as an unhoused board stack version with C-mount front or with no lens holder. An integrated 128 MB memory decouples image acquisition from transmission, making the uEye SE suitable for multi-camera applications.

The all-rounder is available with a screw-on Gigabit Ethernet connection or with a screw-on USB 3.1 Type-C connector. The GigE models support single cable operation with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) up to a length of 100 m. Instead of via PoE, the camera can be supplied with power using a 12-24 V power supply. The GigE uEye SE is available with a choice of GigE Vision firmware or the IDS Software Suite.

In conjunction with IDS's proprietary driver package, the USB 3.1 Gen 1 version of this camera family also allows USB Power Delivery (PD). This enables an LED light to be operated using the USB cable, with the camera requesting the necessary power for itself and the light from the host PC via the USB Type-C interface as a PD consumer.

The IDS Software Suite is identical for all of the manufacturer's cameras, regardless of whether they have a USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB 3.1, or GigE connection. This enables optimum use of the camera and sensor features.
