UI-5240CP uEye CP camera

Share this on social media:

IDS now offers its GigE uEye CP industrial cameras with the new 1.3 Megapixel global shutter CMOS sensor from e2v. The UI-5240CP model combines the advantages of the sensors, such as high light sensitivity and fast frame rate, with the features of the GigE interface and a design consistent with industry applications. These include a robust magnesium housing, screw-on connectors and optically isolated inputs and outputs.

Thanks to Power over Ethernet (PoE), the camera is supplied with electricity via the data cable. As an alternative to supply via PoE, the camera can still be supplied with a 12-24V external power source.

At 29 x 29 x 41mm, the GigE uEye CP is one of the smallest industrial cameras to feature the GigE interface and PoE technology. It has the same plug-and-play convenience as USB models, but based on the Gigabit Ethernet interface it is more powerful and enables the use of a longer connecting cable of up to 100m.

The new model line with the e2v sensor has excellent light sensitivity and colour fidelity, as well as providing fast frame rate of up to 50fps. Furthermore, a multiple AOI mode with up to four areas of interest and a line scan mode are available; the latter enables operation as a line scan camera with a horizontal resolution of 1,280 pixels at up to 64kHz. Available in monochrome and colour versions, the sensor's global shutter makes it suitable for use with moving objects as well.

In addition to the 1.3 Megapixel model, the GigE uEye CP is also available in other versions with resolutions of up to 5 Megapixels.
