The Imaging Source, a manufacturer of industrial cameras for machine vision, has released a series of compact USB 3.0 cameras with CCD and CMOS sensors.

The cameras come in a robust, industrial casing (29 x 29 x 47mm) with a C/CS lens mount, trigger and digital I/0 inputs. The colour, monochrome and Bayer models are available with resolutions from VGA to 5 megapixels. They are ideally suited to machine vision applications in automation, traffic surveillance, quality assurance, medicine, logistics, microscopy and security.

Drivers for LabView, Halcon, DirectX, Twain and WDM are included. All camera parameters and settings can be set via the included software. Furthermore, a number of automatic modes are available, which provide optimal image quality in varying light conditions.

The cameras are supplied with drivers for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8, the SDK IC Imaging Control 3.2 (.NET and C++ class library) and IC Capture. The latter is a powerful end-user application, which allows all camera parameters to be set, live video to be displayed, and singular images and image sequences to be captured.
