IDS expand its GigE uEye RE industrial camera portfolio with a version which offers Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) functionality: With PoE, both power supply and data transfer can be assured by a single cable and cameras can therefore be used much more flexible and integrated in many different systems.
The GigE uEye RE with PoE is suited for a widely diverse range of uses in harsh industrial environments. This is assured 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 peripherial devices. In combination with protective tubes, the camera satisfies protection classes IP65 and IP67.
The camera also offers USB style Plug&Play. A uEye GigE camera periodically sends out a heartbeat which is recognized by the host PC. The camera is then added to the IDS camera manager and immediately ready to use. Whether standard or PoE models: The camera suits applications within harsh industrial environments, e.g. automotive industry, automation or casting industry.
