New industrial 5MP cameras for the USB 3 uEye CP family

Share this on social media:

The USB 3.0 industrial cameras from camera manufacturer IDS will be available soon with second-generation CMOS sensors of Sony’s Pregius series. The 2/3” IMX250 and IMX264 sensors provide a resolution of 5 megapixels (2456 x 2054) and, due to the advanced 3.45µm pixel structure, they deliver high quality, low-noise images even under low-light conditions.

The new industrial cameras of the USB 3 uEye CP family are expected to be available in summer 2016. They will be suitable for classical machine vision applications as well as for inspection tasks on fast-moving objects, for applications in microscopy, or in the ITS market. The CMOS camera provides an integrated image memory, and it can be used flexibly due to its compact dimensions measuring 29 x 29 x 29mm, the robust magnesium housing, and screw-on Micro USB 3.0 and Hirose connectors.

The Sony IMX250 global shutter CMOS sensor achieves a frame rate of 77fps in the camera model UI-3080CP while the Sony IMX264 reaches 36fps in the camera model UI-3280CP.

The IMX250 provides a number of interesting features that can be used in combination with IDS’ own driver package. By using the triggered linescan mode, expensive linescan cameras can be easily replaced in many applications. Long exposure of up to 30 seconds is also possible which allows perfect images even under low-light conditions. In addition, the USB industrial camera provides features such as a variable speed shutter, and the monochrome version of the cameras also provide a pixel addition feature.
