IDS has expanded its industrial camera portfolio with a new version of its GigE uEye RE camera series. The new models offer Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) functionality, enabling both power supply and data transfer to be achieved with a single cable.
The GigE uEye RE with PoE is perfectly suited for a widely diverse range of uses in harsh industrial environments. This is assured particularly by the lockable, dust-tight, spray- and water-resistant M12 circular connector which conforms to IP67, optically decoupled digital I/Os as well as two general purpose I/Os. The camera also offers M5 mounting holes on all sides for flexible camera mounting and an I2C bus for triggering peripheral devices. In combination with protective tubes, the camera satisfies protection classes IP65 and IP67.
Like all IDS GigE Cameras, the all new GigE uEye RE with PoE also offers USB style plug and play. A uEye GigE camera periodically sends out a heartbeat, which is recognised by the host PC. The camera is then added to the IDS camera manager and immediately ready to use.
