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.

Automatically perfect images and videos even with changing object distances or difficult lighting conditions? No problem for the compact uEye+ XC autofocus camera. It is equipped with the 13.10 MPix CMOS sensor AR1335 from onsemi. The rolling shutter colour sensor (4200 x 3120 px, pixel size 1.1µm) delivers 20.0 fps and ensures true-to-detail images. Thanks to BSI ("Back Side Illumination") pixel technology, the AR1335 excels not only with excellent low-light performance but also with low pixel noise. The USB3 camera was specially developed with industrial requirements in mind and also offers useful functions such as 24x digital zoom, auto white balance and colour correction. This closes the gap between an industrial camera and a webcam.

All that is needed to use the camera is a single cable connection. In addition, it is GenICam-compliant and thus compatible with our modern software SDK IDS peak.

With its practical die-cast magnesium housing, low weight and screwable USB Micro-B connector, the autofocus camera can be used in a variety of ways in both industrial and non-industrial areas. These include, for example, analysis tasks in the laboratory and diagnostics, use in kiosk systems, logistics and robotics applications.

Calculate now the working distance or the field of view for the XC camera!

The uEye XC autofocus camera ensures perfectly sharp images and videos, even when the distance between the camera and the object is constantly changing. It was specifically designed to fill the gap between industrial cameras and webcams. Unlike consumer webcams, its components - such as the high-resolution 13 MP onsemi sensor and the integrated ISP chip - are available for a long time and fully suitable for industrial use. The sensor delivers 20 fps at full resolution and, thanks to BSI technology ("Back Side Illumination"), can easily cope with changing light conditions. Useful features such as 24x digital zoom, auto white balance and colour correction ensure that every detail is perfectly captured.

It really couldn't be easier to use this compact autofocus camera. Only one cable is needed for its operation. Moreover, thanks to its integration into the Vision Standard-compatible uEye+ product line, uEye XC is supported by IDS peak. If required, the powerful Software Development Kit allows you to configure the USB3 camera specifically for your application.

The uEye XC is used, for example, in kiosk systems, logistics, the medical sector and robotics applications. With the quickly exchangeable macro lens, you can easily shorten the minimum object distance of the camera. This makes it also suitable for close-up applications, for example in medical technology.


Just plug in and get started

The uEye XC is an industrial camera with the simplicity of a webcam. Setting up and operating the camera requires only one cable connection. The 13 MP autofocus camera immediately delivers high-resolution, detailed images and videos.

Long product life cycle

Use of industrial components

Unlike consumer webcams, the uEye XC camera is specially designed for industrial requirements. This includes its robust housing, the screwable USB micro B connector and electronic components with long-term availability.

Compact lightweight

Versatile autofocus camera

The USB3 uEye XC is also characterised by its elegant and lightweight magnesium housing. With dimensions of only 32 x 61 x 19 mm (W x H x D), it is compact, robust and absolutely suitable for industrial use.

Medical technology (and laboratory automation)

Image processing is indispensable in medical technology. For instance, IDS cameras provide data for diagnostic purposes in ophthalmology or dentistry.

Barcode reading

In addition to process automation and logistics, IDS cameras also reliably recognize barcodes in other industries.


Imaging systems can be found e.g. in self-checkout systems and reverse vending machines and provide support for shelf inspection.


Cameras are indispensable in the logistics sector - e.g. for (de-)palletizing tasks, sorting tasks or in autonomous vehicles.

Pharma and healthcare

By using cameras, it is possible to check e.g. whether packaging is correctly filled and printed or whether there are any impurities.

Kiosk systems

IDS cameras are used in self-checkout systems as well as in reverse vending machines and ATMs.

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!
