automatically perfect images
The webcam alternative for industrial applications
With uEye XC, IDS closes the market gap between industrial camera and webcam. Thanks to the integrated autofocus, you get perfectly sharp images and videos even with changing object distances. As a result, you can use the USB3 camera from the Vision Standard-compliant uEye+ product line for a wide range of applications - from kiosk systems to logistics and robotics.
13 MP @ 20 fps
Plug & Play
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 only requires a cable connection. After that, the 13MP autofocus camera immediately delivers high-resolution, detailed images and videos. With the quickly exchangeable macro lens, you can easily shorten the minimum object distance of the camera. This makes it suitable for close-up applications, for example in medical technology.
Long product life cycle
Use of industrial components
Unlike consumer webcams, the uEye XC camera is designed for industrial use. Its components score with long availability - a must for industrial applications. Useful features such as 24x digital zoom, auto white balance and colour correction ensure that you can capture all details perfectly. If required, you can configure the camera specifically for your application with IDS peak, the powerful software development kit from IDS.
Highly versatile autofocus camera
The USB3 uEye XC is characterised by its particularly elegant and lightweight magnesium housing. With dimensions of only 32 x 61 x 19 mm (W x H x D), it is compact, sturdy despite its light weight and absolutely suitable for industrial use. Its 13 MP onsemi sensor delivers 20 fps at full resolution and, thanks to BSI technology, can easily handle changing light conditions.
For industrial production, the highest standards of quality and safety have to be met. The uEye XC shows its strengths in process and quality assurance, for example. This guarantees standardised, consistent quality of goods, improves the entire process and increases productivity.
Whether cash, passport photo or postcard machines: uEye XC can be used in all kiosk systems. It makes customised service in photo-assisted terminals easy. In airports, combining uEye XC with passport readers is an ideal building block for property protection.
uEye XC helps to capture objects on conveyor belts, barcodes on parcels or labels on luggage. The autofocus camera provides a cost-effective solution to monitor, analyse and optimise operations from the first step to the last.
In dermatology, the compact autofocus camera can be used to precisely detect the finest skin lesions using the macro lens. No matter if you are performing an online consultation or diagnosis: uEye XC guarantees high-quality images and is flexible in its handling.
Industrial camera with the simplicity of a webcam
Due to their simple, uncomplicated handling, typical consumer webcams are also often used for some machine vision applications. However, users are well aware that these attractively priced devices have significant disadvantages in terms of quality, durability and long-term availability compared to classic industrial cameras. With the uEye XC, IDS Imaging Systems GmbH addresses exactly this market segment and has developed a camera that combines the advantages of both worlds. Dipl.-Ing. Heiko Seitz, Technical Author at IDS answers the most important customer questions about the new uEye XC.
Discover what uEye XC makes possible
Up close: The combination of the 13 MP autofocus camera and practical macro lens enables you to inspect objects with high precision. Visualise the smallest details at close range from just a few centimetres - like here from 1.5 cm on a section of a 50 Euro note that is only a few millimetres in size. This makes the camera ideal for tasks in quality assurance or in the life science sector.
So much to discover: The autofocus camera automatically focuses on the intended subject and thus ensures a perfect distance setting. Here, the example shows the inside of a window (4 cm away from the camera), the outside of a window (8 cm), a cup placed on a facade projection (20 cm) and the surroundings (infinity). If necessary, the focus can also be controlled by software.
