Stemmer Imaging now supplies IDS' uEye ML industrial vision camera. With a magnesium casing, the camera weighs just 37g, yet is robust enough for use in extreme industrial environments. A USB 2.0 interface and a 1.3 megapixel CMOS sensor from e2v bring a versatility to the uEye ML that makes it ideally suited to applications in ITS, quality control, microscopy and medical engineering, as well as machine vision.
The 1,280 x 1,024 pixel CMOS sensor runs at 25fps at full resolution and offers a line scan mode as well as a logarithmic mode for use under high-contrast imaging conditions. It is also the first sensor to offer the flexibility of four shutter modes and the ability to switch between individual modes while the camera is in operation.
The shutter modes can be adjusted according to the signal-to-noise ratio, for distortion-free images or in critical lighting situations. The sensor is available in colour, monochrome and NIR versions.
The light weight and compact size of the camera is important for space limited applications such as in embedded systems and apparatus engineering. The camera also features a C/CS lens mount and an eight-pin Hirose connector (HR25), offering two GPIOs and optically decoupled trigger and flash I/Os.
