With its standard industrial dimensions (29 x 29 mm) and its compact yet exceptionally robust magnesium housing, The CMOS camera is suitable for a broad range of applications, in both industrial and non-industrial environments. Particularly in multi-camera applications, the integrated image memory ensures that no images go astray. The camera is consistently designed for future generations of high-performance sensors.
The USB 3.0 uEye CP Rev. 2 camera series is available with the established IDS Software Suite, which supports all features of the very latest sensors.
The perfect and cost-effectice volume camera: The USB 3 uEye LE is available in a housed version with C/CS lens mount for a great choice of lenses, wide-angled lenses included. Or alternatively, as the first proper single-board USB 3.0 CMOS camera with or without S-mount lens mount for most cost-effective lenses. Thanks to its minimal size the USB 3 uEye LE offers easy integration and hence is the perfect component for embedded systems and apparatus engineering.
The single-board version also offers excellent connectivity with its 8 pin connector for 5 V power supply, trigger, flash, two GPIOs and an I2C bus for triggering external devices. Thanks to the same footprint as the USB 2 uEye LE it's exceptionally easy to upgrade from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 technology.
Light and also robust: weighing in at only 41 g with a size of 47 x 46 x 28 mm the USB 3 uEye ML is the perfect CMOS camera for all space critical applications. Yet the camera also offers all benefits one would expect from a proper industrial camera. The USB 3 uEye ML is suited for a wide range of applications thanks to two GPIOs, opto-decoupled trigger and flash.
Its C/CS lens mount allows for a great selection of lenses, wide-angles lenses included. Camera integration is particularly easy based on Plug&Play and USB's one cable solution for data transfer and power supply.
The USB 3 uEye XC with 13 megapixel resolution and autofocus is packed with functions that are normally only available on the latest consumer digital cameras: Face detection, 16x digital zoom, autofocus, backlight compensation, automatic white balance, and plenty more fantastic features. This CMOS camera is ideal for applications with varying ambient conditions, such as access control, kiosk system or logistics. The robust housing, screw-on USB connector, and long-term availability also make the USB 3 uEye XC suitable for industrial use.
CMOS cameras with USB 2.0 interface
The USB 2 uEye LE series is a versatile and reasonably-priced range of CMOS cameras for use in industrial and non-industrial projects, which nonetheless ticks all the boxes in terms of sensor technology and versatility. You can choose from next generation CMOS sensors from well-known European manufacturers in resolutions ranging from VGA up to 10 megapixels.
The compact industrial camera is available either with a plastic housing with a C/CS-mount lens adapter, or as a board-level version with an M12 or M14 lens holder or without a lens holder. Thanks to the adjustable flange back distance, fluctuations of standard lenses can be prevented, which means that zoom lenses can also be used. The board-level version comes with two general purpose I/Os, a built-in trigger and flash, as well as a built-in I2C bus for controlling external devices. This makes the CMOS camera ideal for small device construction.
The USB 2 uEye ML camera series is a reasonably-priced and compact industrial camera with USB 2.0 interface and next generation CMOS sensor technology. Its small dimensions make the camera ideal for applications with space restrictions. Thanks to its robust metal housing and lockable connectors, the USB 2 uEye ML can also be used in harsh industrial environments. The 8-pin Hirose connector highlights the versatility of the CMOS camera by providing two general purpose I/Os as well as optically decoupled trigger inputs and flash outputs.
The USB 2 uEye ML industrial cameras are fitted with the successful e2v 1.3 megapixel CMOS sensor EV76C560 and are available in monochrome, color, and NIR versions, delivering outstanding performance in the near infrared range The cameras offer a host of sensor features, including line scan mode, log mode, and four freely-selectable shutter modes, making them suitable for a wide range of applications while ensuring outstanding image quality. The camera comes with a C/CS-mount lens adapter.
The USB 2 uEye SE is the very best all-round industrial camera: Small, compact, and robust, the first ever camera model from IDS has proven its worth in industry for over a decade. The USB 2 uEye SE family offers a broad range of CMOS sensors as well as a vast selection of housings and board-level models with or without front flange.
The USB 2.0 interface makes the CMOS camera extremely flexible, cost-efficient, and space-saving, as data is sent and power is supplied by a cable. The digital inputs and outputs for controlling the trigger and flash are optically decoupled and process signals of up to 30 V. The industrial cameras can be screw-mounted on all sides and can therefore be installed anywhere. A specially developed sensor seal provides protection in extremely dusty environments. The camera filter is also exchangeable and easy to clean.
Very small, really easy, just ingenious.
The small, smart XS CMOS camera combines the easiness and comfort of a consumer camera with the scope of industrial applications. The USB 2 uEye XS can easily be integrated thanks to its USB 2.0 interface and Mini B USB 2.0 connector.

Ensenso stereo 3D cameras
3D-Vision: The Ensenso stereo 3D cameras work according to the "projected texture stereo vision" principle. Each model has two integrated CMOS sensors and a projector that casts a random point pattern onto the object to be captured, allowing structures that are not visible or only faintly visible on the surface to be enhanced or highlighted.
The compact and robust aluminum housing of the stereo cameras with lockable GPIO connector for trigger and flash underline the suitability of the cameras for industrial use.
3D vision is now even easier, more precise and more flexible: The new Ensenso X series is an ultraflexible 3D camera system whose projector unit with 100 W LED projector power and integrated GigE switch enables perfectly tailored adjustments to suit your requirements.
The camera mounting brackets are available in a range of widths. You can also configure the camera's angle of view and choose between various C-mount lenses for the camera and projector. This flexibility facilitates a wide range of working distances of up to around 5 meters.
