USB 3 uEye CP – Incredibly fast, incredibly reliable, incredible sensors

The new developed generation of the USB 3 uEye CP makes a designer's heart beat faster: innovative housing design, high quality as well as unbeatable performance. Highlights are the integrated image buffer with 128 MB, which is perfectly suited for multi-camera applications, and the standby mode, which reduces the power consumption in sleep mode to a minimum. Focussing on new and future generations of high-perfomance CMOS sensors, the USB 3 uEye CP is a future-proof investement for your applications.

Due to the high performance of modern sensors the camera models UI-3160CP, UI-3180CP, UI-3590CP are not supported in the USB 2.0 mode. The USB 2.0 interface doesn't provide enough power.
  • Standby mode for minimum power consumption in sleep mode
  • Active cables and fiber optic cables up to 100 meters available
  • Easy integration into existing systems and communication with external peripherals
  • Providing the latest CMOS sensors by Sony, CMOSIS, e2v and ON Semiconductor
  • USB 3.0 interface: High data rate of 420 MByte/s, easy integration and plug & play functionality, ideal for multi-camera and 3D systems
  • Compact: Measures just 29 x 29 x 29 mm, ideal for applications with space restrictions
  • Efficient: Low power consumption
  • Weighs less than 45 g: Very versatile, especially well-suited to embedded systems
  • Cable length: Passive cable up to 8 meters, active cable up to 20 meters available as quality-tested accessories
  • Optically decoupled trigger and flash, as well as two general purpose I/Os: Many additional features for a wide range of industrial applications
  • Serial TTL interface: Ideal for controlling external devices
  • Filter glass in front of the image sensor: For protection against dust and dirt and for spectral filtering of the incident light
  • Pixel pipeline: Color models with hardware RGB calculation with up to 36 bits
  • 100 % quality tested and calibrated: For consistent performance and reliability

Although the USB 3 uEye CP cameras have already proven their worth in the following applications in particular, they are also ideally suited to other fields of application.


  • Automation: Quality assurance and inspection
  • Automotive industry: Bodywork inspection
  • Astronomy (models with NIR sensor)
  • Logistics
  • Pharmaceutical industry: Label, OCR, and barcode recognition, color and completeness checks
  • Robotics: Guidance/orientation assistance, object and pattern recognition, object type, position, and direction recognition
  • Printing industry: Completeness checks, endless web inspection systems, quality assurance
  • Packaging industry: Bottle inspection, fill quantity analysis, barcode and OCR recognition
  • Embedded systems
  • Multi-camera systems and 3D applications
  • Other applications: Motion analysis (e.g. sports applications)
