Basler appoints Arrow Electronics as distributor for embedded vision

Arrow Electronics will now distribute products from Basler throughout the EMEA region, with a particular focus on Basler’s embedded vision products.

Arrow is working to integrate Basler’s technology into its own systems-on-module and boards portfolio for embedded vision developers.

Basler’s embedded vision solutions portfolio includes cameras, lenses, modules, software and all the supporting accessories required to add vision capability to a machine.

In June 2017 Basler bought Mycable, a consulting company specialising in embedded computing. Basler will also exhibit at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany from 27 February to 1 March, where it will introduce partner products, reference designs and development kits that demonstrate the compatibility of Basler cameras with various systems-on-modules and system-on-chips, and different processor architectures.

Amir Sherman, director of engineering solutions and embedded technology at Arrow’s Components business in EMEA, said: ‘The Internet of Things is driving the demand for many sensing technologies. Being able to add the power of sight to a network of machines is increasingly desirable and, in many cases, essential now.’

Alexander Temme, general manager module business at Basler, said: ‘Arrow is already providing a broad range of solutions to the embedded community and we are pleased to be working with them, extending the capabilities of developers with our leading vision products.’

Basler’s sales amounted to €78.5 million in the first half of 2017. Basler's products will be available through Arrow from 1 March 2018.
