Edit hotpixels yourself

Hot pixels are pixels that do not react linearly to incident light or do not react at all. Before IDS cameras leave production, each camera is checked for hot pixels. The hot pixels found are stored in the camera memory and can be corrected when hotpixel correction is enabled.

However, the pixels on the sensor are not fixed. Over time, other hot pixels may occur on the sensor due to the aging process of the pixel, heat or also cosmic radiation during transportation of the sensor. To avoid having to return the camera when new hot pixels occur, you can use the uEye Hotpixel Editor to define hot pixels in just a few steps.

The uEye Hotpixel Editor is part of the free IDS Software Suite.
