Basler has started series production of the next models of its Ace area scan camera series, the acA2000-340km/kc and the acA2040-180km/kc.
The Basler Ace cameras use the CMV2000 2 Megapixel and the CMV4000 4 Megapixel sensors by Cmosis. They offer 340fps at 2 Megapixel and 180fps at 4 Megapixel resolution via a Camera Link interface. The sensors run in progressive scan mode and use a global shutter for very precise imaging results and a less complex system layout compared to rolling shutter.
Basler Ace cameras with Cmosis sensors offer an outstanding price/performance ratio. They feature very high speeds, an exceptional image quality and a very attractive starting list price of €1,090.
The compact 29 x 29 x 43.5mm housing and less than 90g overall weight allows users to build smaller systems and to use the cameras in space-critical situations. Since power is supplied via Power over Camera Link (PoCL), only one cable per camera is required which saves space and reduces cost for the overall system.
The quantum efficiency is exceptional, providing an extremely sensitive camera with low dark noise values. Basler Ace Cmosis cameras can even replace standard CCD sensor based cameras with a 29 x 29mm form factor while providing much higher speeds.
