IDS Imaging Development Systems has unveiled its first AIA certified and USB3 Vision-compliant series of cameras. The new camera range will be starting with both housing and single-board level versions equipped with the latest generation of 1.3, 2, and 5 megapixel CMOS sensors. The design of the USB3 Vision models and the cameras of the USB 3 uEye LE and ML series with the IDS software package is the same. The series production is expected to commence in Q4/2014.
The supplier has designed its first USB3 Vision cameras to be "all-rounders". They will be supplied with a monochrome, color, or NIR sensor and will be suitable for a broad range of applications - from automation engineering and robotics, to small device construction, through to applications in the printing and packaging industry or medical technology. The integrated CMOS sensors deliver outstanding sensitivity to light in CCD quality and come with a range of interesting features. For instance, global and rolling shutter modes that can be changed while the camera is in operation provide greater flexibility if requirements or ambient conditions change.
