USB 3 uEye XC triumphs in Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016
The USB 3 uEye XC is an industrial camera that gets out of line with its design. The lightweight magnesium housing with its dimensions of just 32 x 61 x 19 mm (w x h x d) makes it compact and robust despite its lightness. Now, the versatile industrial camera was awarded with the Red Dot, the international distinction for high design quality.
Participants from 57 nations had registered about 5,200 products and innovations for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016. Only products which set themselves apart considerably through their excellent design receive the sought-after quality seal from the international Red Dot jury, consisting of 41 experts from all around the world. The independent expert panel assesses each entry strictly and fairly, live and on site, according to criteria such as degree of innovation, formal quality, functionality and ecological compatibility. Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and president of the Dot Award: “With their performances, the Red Dot winners not only demonstrated an extraordinary design quality, but they also showed that design is an integral part of innovative product solutions.”
That´s what winners look like… However, the camera is not only an art work of the product designer but also one hundred percent suitable for industrial use. The look of the USB 3 uEye XC follows its typical application fields such as kiosk systems (ATMs, multimedia stations, passport readers), access control, logistics (barcode-reading) and medical technology.
For the industrial environment, the functions are just as innovative as the design: The USB 3 uEye XC is equipped with a pioneering camera module that combines the comfort of a digital camera with high-resolution, richly detailed images at high speed. For industrial cameras untypical auto features, such as autofocus, digital zoom, backlight compensation, face detection and automatic white balance facilitate day-to-day business. They allow the auto operation of this versatile industrial camera, even under changing ambient conditions. To cope also with individual, steady requirements – common in some industrial sectors - these features can be deactivated and the models can be adjusted manually. It is compatible with Mac OS, Windows and Linux.
Thus the USB 3 uEye XC is not only beautiful but also extremely talented…
