Ace GigE cameras
25 July 2012
Camera specialist Basler has entered series production of its Ace GigE camera models with powerful CMV2000 and CMV4000 CMOS sensors from Cmosis. Two monochrome models will also be available as near infrared variants, which exceed, in some instances, even high-quality CCD cameras in matters of image quality and sensitivity.
These Ace GigE cameras are available with 2 Megapixel resolution and 50fps (acA2000-50) and with 4 Megapixel resolution and 25fps (acA2040-25), each in monochrome and colour. Just as the Cmosis-based Camera Link models, these cameras exhibit low noise and a high sensitivity, resulting in excellent image quality. They are thus an ideal match for a broad variety of applications including factory automation, semiconductor and electronics production, traffic applications, the solar industry and the medical sector.
The two monochrome models are also available as NIR-optimised variants. They achieve excellent sensitivity at wavelengths of 900nm. Thus, they offer advantages under bad lighting conditions or at night, and are an ideal choice for surveillance, intelligent traffic systems, or biometrics.
The models have an excellent price/performance ratio. They have a compact housing of 29 x 29 x 43.5mm and weigh less than 90g. Only one cable per camera is necessary thanks to the power supply via Power over Ethernet. This also saves space and reduces complexity, susceptibility to faults, and system costs.
