Basler has launched its new area scan camera, the Basler Beat. Featuring the CMV12000 CMOS sensor from Cmosis, the camera offers 12 megapixels of resolution and the latest progressive scan and global shutter technology. Monochrome (beA4000-62km) and colour (beA4000-62kc) models are available, and both process 62fps, with high throughput thanks to the Camera Link interface.
The cameras are suited for all types of measurement and identification tasks, and come in a compact, robust housing to ensure secure and simple integration and compatibility with a wide selection of reliable accessories. They are frequently used in the semiconductor and electronics manufacturing fields as well as traffic applications, including number plate recognition and multi-lane recording. In addition, the Beat can be used for medical and laboratory automation applications such as fluorescence microscopy.
Beat cameras are designed to meet industrial standards such as Camera Link and GenICam. Basler's free Pylon camera software suite is based on the GenICam standard and works with all models in the Beat series. The software suite provides quick access to all functions and optimal operation of the camera.
Basler has also expanded its product portfolio to include new Ace models with Sony's IMX174 global shutter CMOS sensor. The four new camera models deliver up to 155fps at 2.3 megapixel resolution. The company is also taking its Dart board level cameras into series production.
Basler cameras are also available in the UK from Multipix Imaging.
