Excellent image quality: uEye CP cameras with IMX273 Sony sensor

The IMX273 global shutter CMOS sensor from Sony's Pregius family allows up to 245 fps and is characterized by its enormous sensitivity and high dynamic range. With these features, it is also capable of taking pictures in low light or of moving objects with ease. The 1.58 MP sensor is now available in combination with our uEye CP cameras measuring only 29 x 29 x 29 mm.

Perfectly focused: USB 3.1 Gen 1 LE board level cameras

The uEye LE USB 3.1 Gen 1 board level cameras with S-mount or CS-/C-mount will be available from July as focusable models, matching liquid lenses are offered separately. The cameras allow perfect images even with variable object distances, because users can easily readjust the focus via software. The low-cost uEye LE industrial cameras with twist-proof USB Type-C connector and USB power delivery are therefore highly interesting for both small device construction and classic machine vision applications.

USB 3 uEye CP cameras support climate research

The oceans play a central role in global climate change on our planet. Marine organisms and the structure of their communities in the water column as well as on or in the seabed provide us with important information on future climatic developments. This is true for fluctuations of a natural manner, but also to fluctuations caused by humans.

Triggering according to the Lego principle

We are all familiar with them. The colourful plastic bricks with the patented stud system, which allows you to combine the bricks in any way you wish and let your imagination run free. The Lego principle is as ingenious as it is simple and has turned out to be a recipe for success. The world of machine vision has made good use of this principle.

International rollout of IDS NXT

IDS NXT stands for a new generation of vision app-based sensors and cameras from IDS. The devices offer maximum flexibility, as they can adapt to the users’ requirements and be used for different image processing tasks. For individual applications, which go beyond standard apps, users can create and install individual vision apps. The IDS NXT platform kicks off with the IDS NXT vegas with 1.3 MP CMOS sensor, liquid lens with autofocus, integrated TOF sensor and many other features. Furthermore, we will shortly be launching the IDS NXT vegas with colour sensor as well as new firmware and cockpit versions.

Accelerated processes due to GPU-based image processing

Users of the Ensenso X series with high-resolution 5 MP cameras benefit from an improved quality of the 3D point cloud, but also have to be prepared for larger amounts of data and therefore longer processing times. The new EnsensoSDK 2.2 offers a solution that guarantees very fast processes and high clock rates – and is also very interesting for Ensenso X systems with 1.3 MP cameras.
