Stemmer Imaging has made available the robust uEye RE camera series from IDS at the same price as standard models. The camera series is designed for use in harsh industrial manufacturing environments and is particularly popular with OEM companies.
The compact USB 2.0 RE cameras feature a ruggedised housing and, with special lens tubes, meet IP 65/67 standards. They are shockproof and EMI compliant and are ideally suited to robot vision and or inspection applications in dusty and wet production environments.
The camera series features 19 different monochrome or colour versions with resolutions ranging from VGA (640 x 480 pixels) to 5 Megapixel. The compact size allows use in limited space. The smallest version (without the lens) measures approximately 41 x 41 x 41mm and weighs less than 150g. All models provide a universal, opto-isolated trigger input as well as an opto-isolated output, e.g. for operating illumination.
