We have been developing and producing machine vision products since 1997. We consistently adapt key future technologies from the consumer world to make them suitable for long-term use in equipment, mechanical, and plant engineering in industrial or non-industrial target sectors. We develop the high-performance hardware and software for these products at our site in Obersulm, Germany. From day one, we have focused on USB interfaces. We are now global leaders and are among the pioneers in the development of high-performance CMOS cameras with USB 3.0 interfaces. In short: There is no other manufacturer with as much experience in the development and use of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 industrial cameras. Our high-speed Gigabit Ethernet cameras are also world-leading products.
We were quick to identify the way things were heading, not just in terms of USB. Our sensors are also helping to shape the future. Since 2011 our new camera models contain exclusively CMOS sensors and, with more than ten years of know-how in development and sales, we can offer a broad range of sensors.
Comprehensive product range
Every application is different and the range of possible applications involving USB and GigE cameras from IDS is almost unlimited – even where there are special requirements in terms of the environment, interfaces with other electronic components, or constricted space. Our experienced engineering team can develop and build customized special models for you. The modular concept of our high-performance products and flexibility of the IDS Software Suite make it easy.
However, it takes more than a good product to establish a long-term partnership based on trust. We offer you a complete package with every industrial camera – with comprehensive service before, during, and after your buying decision. Our highly qualified, motivated and meticulously trained employees work hand in hand with you. We provide you with defined contacts and regular discussions, as well as support in choosing the right accessories. Whether you need feasibility studies, consulting, training, or technical support, we're there for you.
