Product Life Cycle Camera in series production. 🛈 Product Life Cycle Long-term availability is an important aspect when selecting the right industrial camera. 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. The following life cycle statuses are differed: In development The model is not yet in series production, but will be introduced shortly. In series Camera in series production. Not recommended for new designs The model is no longer recommended for new application development. We suggest looking for newer models of the "in series" availability. The availability of the model is fully ensured until its final discontinuation. Discontinued The model has been discontinued. You have the opportunity to secure inventory before the end of the last-time-buy order period. See product discontinuations. For further questions, please contact our sales team.

Very small, really easy, just ingenious.

The small, smart XS with triggered autofocus and many other auto functions combines the easiness and comfort of a consumer camera with the scope of industrial applications. The XS can easily be integrated thanks to its USB 2.0 interface and Mini B USB 2.0 connector. Equipped with OmniVision’s 5.04 MPix CMOS sensor and a pixel size of 1.4 µm the camera delivers excellent images quality and accuracy in colour reproduction – even in the harshest ambient light conditions.

The camera is the ideal choice for all applications that required a small yet smart camera with a great range of features. Due to its lightweight, compact design, 15.0 fps at full resolution (2592 x 1944 pixels) and integrated power supply, the XS is perfect for ATM, kiosk and embedded systems as well as medical engineering.

This camera model will be supported beginning with IDS Software Suite 4.92.

Tiny body, immense potential: with a weight of only 12 grams and extremely compact dimensions of 26.5 x 23 x 21.5 millimetres, the uEye XS camera is one of the smallest in the Vision market. Its fast autofocus is a special highlight among the numerous auto functions. It delivers consistently sharp images starting from distances of only 10 centimetres.
The XS combines the simplicity of a consumer camera with the application capabilities of an industrial camera. Thanks to its 5 megapixel OmniVision CMOS sensor and helpful functions such as automatic white balance, automatic exposure and autofocus, the camera delivers excellent images even in difficult lighting conditions.

In JPEG mode, the model delivers 15 frames per second and up to 30 fps at reduced resolution. In addition, eight freely selectable and easily switchable image formats from VGA to 5 MP are available. In combination with the integrated JPEG compression, the mini camera is also suitable for video streaming with 720p (HD-ready) or 1080p (Full HD). It can therefore be used in a variety of ways, for example in medical or security technology, in transport and logistics or as a component for kiosk systems.

Strikingly crisp images!

Thanks to practical autofocus

The integrated autofocus optics ensures constantly sharp images from a distance of only 10 cm. If required, the focus can also be controlled manually using the free IDS software suite.
The software function "Adjustable focus range" allows users to freely select the focus range. This enables them to determine the position of the measurement window within the image themselves.

Consumer comfort for industrial applications!

Sharper and more visible

From automatic white balance and automatic exposure to auto gain and autofocus, the XS delivers the best images in every situation. Adjust the sharpness of the image, e.g. edge enhancement, individually to recognize even more details. By activating the mirror function, you can mirror your images horizontally or vertically.

Extremely compact!

Perfect for embedded systems

With a weight of only 12 grams and tiny dimensions of only 26.5 x 23 x 21.5 millimetres, the XS fits anywhere. Thanks to its lightweight, compact design, the uEye XS can be easily integrated into embedded systems. Other areas of application include medical and security technology, transport and logistics, and kiosk Systems.

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".

As an existing IDS customer, please contact our sales team for further information.

It's so easy!
