Release Notes for IDS Software Suite 4.82.1

Introduction

These release notes expand the previous release notes for IDS Software Suite 4.82 by further new camera models that are supported from driver 4.82.1 on. Additionally, existing functions were enhanced.

New camera family

GigE uEye CP Rev. 2

The second generation of our GigE uEye CP assists you with classic machine vision applications. 100% quality tested and calibrated: For consistent performance and reliability. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 29 mm, the new CMOS cameras are much more compact than their predecessors and even more powerful: Full GigE speed, single-cable operation up to 100 meters via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), screw-on connectors, and much more. Ideal for multi-camera operation: An integrated image memory decouples image acquisition from image transfer. Internal camera functions such as pixel preprocessing, LUT or gamma minimize the processing power required.

GigE uEye FA

The camera housing, lens tubes and connectors fulfill the prerequisites for protection class IP65/67 and protect the camera from dirt, dust, water splashes or cleaning agents as well as accidental shifting of the optics. 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. As with the GigE uEye CP Rev. 2, an integrated image memory decouples image acquisition from image transfer. Internal camera functions such as pixel preprocessing, LUT or gamma minimize the processing power required.

Changed functions

Adaptive hot pixel correction with cluster determining

With the adaptive hot pixel correction, an optional cluster detection can be activated. Clusters are two or more neighboring hot pixels. The cluster correction works with a second hot pixel list (cluster list) that can be created dynamically or once, independently from the hot pixel list. The dynamic cluster correction may cause a high CPU load.

Note: Depending on the image content, the cluster detection may also recognize fine details as clusters. In this case, calibrate the camera against a low-contrast background or darken the camera before calibration.

In addition, the number of corrected hot pixel is displayed in percentage and no longer as an absolute number.

The API functions for the adaptive cluster correction are implemented in the is_Hotpixel function and the AdaptiveCorrection .NET class.

Enhancement of the sequencer mode

The sequencer mode was extended: Now, you can query for a camera which trigger sources are supported by the camera. The new IS_SEQUENCER_TRIGGER_SOURCE_SUPPORTED_GET parameter has been introduced for the is_Sequencer() function and the GetSupportedTriggerSources method in the .NET Sequencer class.

Known issues

  • In IDS line scan, the GigE uEye CP Rev. 2 models may lose a line between two images with a pixel clock > 60 MHz.
  • The models UI-386xLE and UI-388xLE can only be used with automatic flash.
