The UI-5242SE Rev. 4.2 is a particularly powerful industrial camera with the e2v 1.31 MPix CMOS sensor. This is one of the most sensitive sensors in the IDS product portfolio and it is available in monochrome, colour (EV76C560ABT/EV76C560ACT), and as NIR version (EV76C661ABT). Besides its outstanding sensitivity to light in CCD quality, the camera also has a range of other distinctive features: For example, the sensor provides two global shutter and two rolling shutter modes, which you can switch between while the camera is in operation.
This makes the sensor extremely flexible if requirements or ambient conditions change. There are also up to four areas of interest (AOI). You can use these either to check several features simultaneously or to capture AOIs in a sequence of exposures using a wide range of different parameters.
The UI-5242SE Rev. 4.2 board level camera without lens holder is available in a colour or monochrome version.
Note: The family description refers to the latest revision (Rev.4) of the uEye SE series!
Compact and robust: The uEye SE ("Standard Edition") is the all-round industrial camera with a broad sensor portfolio and countless variants. It has proven itself in industrial use for over a decade. It is consistently designed to support even large-format and fast CMOS sensors. The cameras deliver data at full GigE speed and, thanks to PoE ("Power over Ethernet"), also enable single-cable operation up to 100 meters. In addition, the cameras can be operated with an external 12-24 V power source.
In addition to the screwable RJ45 network connector, the uEye SE GigE cameras have an 8-pin Hirose connector for trigger and flash (optically decoupled) as well as two GPIOs (each with 3.3 V), which enable numerous industrial applications.
All uEye SE models are available either as a housing variant with a special, extremely dust-tight sensor seal or as a board level camera with various lens mount options. The range of applications is therefore very wide and covers fields such as automation, mechanical engineering, the packaging industry and traffic monitoring.
Maximum GigE transfer rate!
Single cable operation up to 100 m
The uEye SE cameras can be operated either with 12-24 V or alternatively via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). PoE enables practical single-cable operation up to a maximum length of 100m. The host PC load is also significantly reduced by pixel pre-processing (e.g. definable LUT and gamma) in the camera.
For virtually all applications
The uEye SE cameras are available in different versions - including compact, sturdy metal housings and practical board level versions with or without front flange. This makes them a popular choice for a wide range of applications.
Very large selection!
Wide range of sensors
Users can choose from a large number of modern CMOS sensors with a wide range of resolutions that make optimum use of the GigE interface.

New USB 3 camera technology platform
Due to the worldwide semiconductor shortage with the resulting significant delivery delays, we have developed a new USB3 camera technology platform in the uEye+ product line (match code U3) with identical housings, connectors, sensors, lens holders and features. Electronic components are in stock, prototypes for design-ins for many models are available. Series production of the new USB 3 camera revisions is being established or has already started and will then be continuously expanded. The new USB 3 models are ingeniously supported by our Software Development Kit IDS peak. Our camera finder gives you the life cycle of each camera model so that you can take this criterion into account in your camera selection.
Due to the prolonged delivery times for our existing cameras with USB 3 interface, which can continue to be ordered, we are however only offering the newly developed and ready-to-order hardware revisions on our website. You can identify these by the revision number "Rev. x.2".
