NOVEMBER 26, 2008--The uEye Gigabit Ethernet camera series now includes a design with a 90° angled sensor module. The lens is connected at the side of the housing, reducing mounting depth to only 38 mm for limited-space applications. The GigE model features up to 5-Mpixel resolution, two processor cores, and GPIO and RS-232 interfaces. Monochrome and color models are available with CCD or CMOS sensors and resolutions from 640 x 480 to 2560 x 1920 pixels. The 90° angled versions have a C-mount lens adapter with adjustable flange back distance. The camera supports voltages from 6 V through to the typical 24 V used in mechanical engineering. The uEye Camera Manager enables configuration automatically as soon as the camera is connected to the network.

Slimline design!

Gigabit Ethernet Camera with Angled Sensor Head

For its Gigabit Ethernet camera series IDS now also offers a design with a 90°angled sensor module. The lens is connected at the side of the housing, thus reducing the camera's mounting depth to only 38 mm. The new design was specially developed for applications with limited space for camera integration. With up to 5 Mpixels resolution, two processor cores as well as GPIO and RS232 interfaces, the Gigabit Ethernet series is the current flagship of the uEye cameras from IDS.

The rich set of features makes this camera a perfect choice particularly for complex applications in industrial and non-industrial machine vision. The transmission bandwidth is significantly higher than with comparable USB-based cameras, and cable lengths up to 100 m are possible.

The new uEye camera is available in various monochrome and colour models with CCD or CMOS sensor and resolutions from 640 x 480 to 2560 x 1920 pixels.

Like all variants of the Gigabit Ethernet series, the 90° angled versions have a C-mount lens adapter with adjustable flange back distance. The voltage input offers great flexibility: The camera supports voltages from 6 V through to the typical 24 V used in mechanical engineering.

Besides a trigger input and a flash output, which are both optically decoupled, the GigE cameras have an RS232 interface and two GPIO ports that can be used either as digital inputs or digital outputs.

The uEye Camera Manager included in the delivery makes short work of setup and integration. The camera can be configured automatically as soon as it is connected to the network, thus eliminating the need to manually adjust the IP settings. The Software Development Kit (SDK), which also comes with the camera, additionally provides advanced parameter settings and is identical to the SDK of the uEye USB models. Upgrading to the GigE does not require any changes to the application and takes only a few minutes.

Company profile:
IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH is an internationally renowned company with a successful ten-year history. Initially a "two-man firm," IDS started out in 1997 by developing and distributing frame grabbers, which laid the foundation for the company's success. In 2004 IDS launched its first industrial camera under the brand name uEye. Meanwhile several tens of thousands of uEye cameras -- with USB or Gigabit Ethernet interface -- are in use worldwide in industrial automation, quality assurance and security technology as well as non-industrial applications. IDS has a staff of over 70 employees in the development, production, sales, marketing and support departments at its head office in Obersulm, Germany. Internationally the company is represented by its subsidiary in the USA and through its network of distributors in almost all European and Asian countries.
