The USB3 Vision industrial camera U3-3880CP with the rolling shutter CMOS sensor Sony IMX178 offers a very high resolution of 6.41 MPix (3088 x 2076 px), which is ideal for visualisation tasks in microscopy and as a cost-efficient option for intelligent traffic monitoring systems (ITS). The sensor from the Sony STARVIS series features BSI technology ("back-side-illumination") and is one of the most light-sensitive sensors with a low dark current close to the SCMOS range (Scientific CMOS). It provides impressive results even under extremely low light conditions. In combination with our USB3 Vision industrial cameras, the Sony IMX178 delivers frame rates of up to 59.0 fps at full resolution. Thanks to the 1/1.8" sensor size, a wide range of C-mount lenses is available for the U3-3880CP camera model.
Special functions include 2,000.0 ms long exposure and the linescan mode for using the area scan camera as a cost-effective line scan camera alternative.
The U3-3880CP is available in both monochrome and colour variants.
This camera model is supported by IDS Vision firmware 2.0 and higher.
Incredibly fast, incredibly reliable, incredible sensors: the uEye CP stands for "Compact Power" and is the tiny powerhouse for industrial applications of all kinds. It offers maximum functionality with extensive pixel pre-processing and, thanks to the internal 120 MB image memory, is also perfectly suited for multi-camera systems. The USB 3.0 cameras enable a high data rate of 420 MByte/s, low CPU utilization and easy integration.
Users can choose from a large number of modern CMOS sensors from manufacturers such as Sony, CMOSIS, e2v and ON Semiconductor with different resolutions. Due to its innovative, patented housing design with dimensions of only 29 x 29 x 29 millimetres and best processing quality, the camera makes even designer hearts beat faster. In addition, screwable cables ensure a reliable electrical connection.
The cameras are suitable, for example, for tasks in fields such as automation, automotive, printing and packaging, medical technology and life sciences, agriculture, logistics as well as traffic and transport.
Note: Due to the high performance of modern sensors, some USB 3.0 uEye CP models are not supported in USB 2.0 mode. The USB 2.0 interface does not provide sufficient power for this. Further information can be found in the umanual for IDS Software Suite.
It's so easy!
Plug & Play principle
The cameras are automatically detected in the system and are immediately ready for use. Buy a camera, connect it, receive an image - it couldn't be easier!
Practical 8-pin I/O connector
Real-time image trigger capability, synchronous flash signals, a serial communication interface and two GPIOs which can be operated as both an input and an output, open up a huge range of applications.
Dimensions 29 x 29 x 29 mm
The small magnesium housing is as light (approx. 50 grams) as it is sturdy. This underlines the uncompromising industrial suitability of the cameras. They are ideal for space-critical applications and particularly suitable for use in multi-camera and 3D systems.
