uEye driver 2.40

Share this on social media:

The new software driver version 2.40 for the uEye cameras from IDS now supports the latest Microsoft operating system (32-bit). The release also includes a range of new functions.

The most interesting new feature is flash exposure in free-run mode, which was previously only available in trigger mode. In free-run mode the camera sensor works autonomously and at maximum speed. While one captured image is being transmitted, the next image is exposed, providing very high frame rates.

The short exposure times with flash support provides exceptionally sharp images even of quickly moving subjects, without the need for permanent lighting. The camera's flash output can also be used as a trigger signal for starting external measurements. This would synchronise the images with the measurements.

The software is available for all uEye USB cameras from IDS, except the UI-1210 and UI-1440 models.
