Ximea has introduced small 1.3 megapixel USB3 Vision greyscale and colour cameras, offering high-resolution imaging at 60fps.
The MQ013MG-E2 greyscale and MQ013CG-E2 colour USB3 Vision cameras are based on e2v’s Sapphire EV76C560 sensors, which offer either global shutter or rolling shutter for improved signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), 62dB of dynamic range, and support up to four separate user-configurable regions of interest.
Ximea also offers the MQ013RG-E2 greyscale USB3 Vision cameras based on e2v’s Ruby EV76C661 global shutter sensors with enhanced sensitivity in the NIR. The cameras are ideal for industrial inspection, intelligent transportation systems (ITS), defence and security, and microscopy/medical applications.
The xiQ series cameras measure 26.4 x 26.4 x 21.6mm and weigh 26g, and are constructed on a single planar board, simplifying OEM implementations. Ximea's engineers have accomplished this by offloading LUT and other common camera controls for industrial applications to Ximea's free xiAPI software running on the host PC.
The cameras are plug-and-play compatible with PCs running Windows or Linux, as well as Unix-based Mac computers.
