Racer and Ace camera models

Share this on social media:

Basler has introduced further Racer line scan camera models with resolutions of 6k, 8k, and 12k. Together with the 2k and 4k Racer models, Basler’s Racer line scan family covers the whole spectrum of standard line scan cameras.

Basler Racer cameras have a small footprint, 56mm wide and 62mm high; they produce excellent images, and are attractively priced. They are available with either a Gigabit Ethernet or a Camera Link interface, and offer excellent line rates. The 8k model with a Camera Link interface reaches a line rate of up to 80kHz. Highly sensitive CMOS technology provides for excellent image quality, low noise characteristics, and a quantum efficiency of approximately 60 per cent. The CMOS sensors use very little power and their innovative heat-dissipation concept allows the cameras to stay cool to give a better image.

The cameras are especially suitable for inspection of continuous materials, such as in web inspection, flat panel display inspection, and solar inspection.

The 2k and 4k Camera Link models feature Power over Camera Link (PoCL), with data and power carried by the same cable. This reduces costs for accessories and system complexity, and creates a simpler, more reliable system. In addition, Mini Camera Link accessories are becoming less expensive than regular Camera Link equipment, which allows costs to drop even further, especially in larger systems.

Basler has also introduced ten models in its Ace area scan camera series featuring a USB 3.0 interface. The Ace USB 3.0 cameras have a compact 29mm3 housing and can readily replace older cameras of similar size and construction, especially those with a FireWire or USB 2.0 interface.

Basler will offer resolutions from VGA to 5 Megapixels capturing up to 120fps. The cameras use modern CMOS sensors and high-quality Sony CCD sensors.

All Basler Ace USB 3.0 models are compliant with the USB3 Vision standard. This ensures reliable data transmission, easy integration, greatest possible flexibility in selecting a camera and long-term safeguarding of investment.

Ace cameras, whether fitted with a Gigabit Ethernet, Camera Link or the new USB 3.0 interface, provide excellent image quality and outstanding performance for their price.
