Driver version 3.80 update
IDS has released a driver update (version 3.80), allowing the functional scope of its 1.3 Megapixel global shutter CMOS cameras to be expanded to include two new features.
In addition to a multiple AOI mode with up to four areas of interest, the area scan cameras can now also be operated in line scan mode. This makes line-by-line image capture with a full horizontal resolution of 1,280 pixels at up to 64kHz possible. The new functions are also available to cameras of this type with a USB or GigE connection already being used in the field.
Global shutter CMOS cameras from IDS are equipped with a 1.3 Megapixel sensor from e2v. This sensor combines the advantages of CCD technology – high light sensitivity and colour fidelity – with a fast frame rate of up to 60fps and the functional benefits of a CMOS sensor. Available in monochrome and colour versions, the sensor's global shutter makes it suitable for use with moving objects as well.
IDS also offers all available uEye camera series with the e2v sensor, from the board-level version with a USB interface to the high-performance GigE industrial camera.
