Ensenso XR: 3D Data Directly from the Camera

Ensenso XR: 3D Data Directly from the Camera

When 3D image processing is used in compute-intensive applications, interfaces and CPU power quickly become a bottleneck. Wouldn't it be convenient if the 3D camera already did some of the computing? Ensenso XR is the first stereo vision camera offered by IDS that processes 3D data directly in the FPGA. The camera family initially consists of XR30 and XR36 models. They are very robust thanks to IP65/67 protection class, feature 1.6 MP Sony sensors and can detect objects at working distances of up to 5 metres.

Since the camera calculates 3D data itself, a high-performance...

uEye ACP: Individual Cameras Based on a Modular Principle

uEye ACP: Individual Cameras Based on a Modular Principle

Custom-made products are required whenever standard industrial cameras reach their limits. Especially for small projects, however, development and cost expenditure are often disproportionately high. Thanks to its flexible modular design principle, the new uEye ACP concept from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH enables individual, economical solutions to be created – even from single units. With just a few clicks, users can put together their own individual board level camera model using an online configurator and request a quote directly from the manufacturer.
