XS cameras

Share this on social media:

With the new XS, IDS is launching a generation of cameras that it says combines two worlds.

The XS is designed to provide the convenient operation of a standard consumer camera, along with the versatility of a robust industrial camera: numerous automatic functions, normally only found in digital cameras for the consumer market, deliver exceptional user friendliness and also produce an excellent image quality even under difficult lighting and ambient conditions.

Weighing 12 grams and measuring 23 x 26.5 x 21.5mm, the XS can be integrated easily into any system. It has a robust magnesium housing.

The camera is connected using USB 2.0 and a mini-B socket, and the power supply is provided by the bus cable. The 5 megapixel Aptina CMOS sensor with a pixel size of 1.4µm delivers exceptionally detailed true colour images, with a choice of seven fixed image formats: 5MP, 3MP, full HD, UXGA (1,600 x 1,200 pixels), 1.2MP, 720p, and VGA.

The frame rate is freely adjustable (e.g. for long exposures), and at full resolution of 2,592 x 1,944 pixels 15fps can be captured in JPEG mode. Binning can be used to achieve frame rates as high as 30fps.
