e-con Systems Inc., a leading embedded design services company specializing in the development of advanced camera solutions announces the launch of the See3CAM_12CUNIR, part of the See3CAM family of USB 3.0 SuperSpeed cameras. The See3CAM_12CUNIR is a small form-factor pluggable camera solution and houses the e-CAM10_CU0130_MOD with M12 lens mount. The See3CAM_12CUNIR supports 720p@60 and full resolution 1280x960 at 45fps.

The e-CAM10_CU0130_MOD is a 1.3 MP UVC-compliant USB 3.0 Monochrome Camera based on the Aptina’s AR0130 CMOS image sensor with S-mount lens holder attached to it. The AR0130 is a 1/3” Optical Form factor, Electronic Rolling Shutter CMOS sensor with enhanced sensitivity in the Near Infrared region and superior low light performance. The S-mount lens holder and the optional CS-mount holder for custom high-volume applications allow customers to work with various lenses and the optical filters to meet their application requirements. Customers can also choose the optical filters such as IR-pass filters, IR band-pass filters, NIR notch filters etc. as per their requirements. This UVC compliant camera is plug-and-play in both Windows and Linux. In Windows, the camera is exposed as a DirectShow device and in Linux, as a V4L2 capture source.   

“Our customers have been asking for camera solutions with enhanced NIR sensitivity and I am glad with the launch of See3CAM_12CUNIR. The See3CAM_12CUNIR camera supports full12-bits per pixel and is ideally suited for applications such as eye-tracking for gesture control, iris recognition and security applications such as Day/Night vision etc.” said Mr. Ashok Babu, President, e-con Systems Inc. “Customers can also engage e-con to customize the camera to meet their mechanical form-factor and other customization requirements”, he added.

The See3CAM_12CUNIR with enhanced NIR sensitivity for applications in the Near IR spectrum is ideal for customer applications where the flexibility for choosing a lens of their choice is required. See3CAM_12CUNIR can be used in Surveillance cameras for Night Vision and Day/Night Vision applications, License plate recognition in parking lots, Iris recognition, Eye tracking etc. 

The See3CAM_12CUNIR is capable of streaming camera frames 1280x720 @60fps, 1280x960 @45 fps and 640x480 binned at 45 fps with the pixel depth of 12-bit monochrome data when interfaced to a USB3.0 host port.  The See3CAM_12CUNIR comes with external trigger pin which enables to synchronize the exposure of all the pixels on receiving an external trigger. See3CAM_12CUNIR is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 host and can stream 1280x720 @ 12fps and full resolution 1280x960 @ 9fps and 640x480 resolution binned from 1280x960 @ 30fps while connected to USB 2.0 Host.  

e-con Systems’ sample Linux and Windows applications uses the standard UVC protocol to access the camera controls. The e-CAMView, sample Windows DirectShow based sample video viewer application enables controls such as Gain, Exposure and also external trigger modes.
