Ace cameras with sensors from Cmosis

Share this on social media:

Basler has introduced a set of small, ultra-fast, high resolution Ace cameras. The cameras use the 2 and 4 Megapixel resolution CMOS sensors from Cmosis, which reach up to 340 and 180fps respectively. The cameras are equipped with a global shutter and Camera Link interface and are suitable for a range of throughput-orientated applications.

Ace cameras have a very small housing and a footprint of only 29 x 29mm. Trigger or flash support via separate I/O ports and optional Power over Camera Link (PoCL) functionality reduce the hardware installation effort to a minimum. In addition, all camera properties can be adapted with software commands via GenICam support. The performance, the small size, and the flexibility of the Ace Camera Link models make the replacement of analogue and older digital cameras a secure investment.

Like the existing Ace cameras, the new set of Ace Camera Link models has a cost-driven design. They are addressing high-end markets such as semiconductor or electronics manufacturing and Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS), but at the typical cost of a mainstream camera.

Basler aims to offer Ace Cmosis cameras with a GigE interface in late 2011.
