IDS Imaging Development Systems and Icron Technologies have announced joint product interoperability between IDS’ USB 3 uEye LE and ML cameras and Icron’s 15-meter USB 3.0 Spectra 3001-15 active copper cable and the 100-meter Spectra 3022 fiber-based extender system. USB 3 uEye LE cameras from IDS are available in 1, 2, and 5 MPixel models and feature CMOS image sensors from Aptina and e2v. uEye LE cameras achieve up to a 60 fps frame rate and feature a C/CS-Mount lens mount. uEye ML cameras are also available in 1, 2, and 5 MPixel models and feature CMOS image sensors from Aptina and e2v while achieving a frame rate up to 60 fps. uEye cameras are suitable for use in machine vision, factory automation, medical imaging, and robotics.
Icron’s Spectra 3022 is an extender system that features two locking USB 3.0 ports and provides an extension solution that enables connections at up to 5 Gbps over 100m/330ft of multimode fiber optic cable. The Spectra 3001-15 is a 15-meter bus-powered copper cable that extends USB 3.0 at 5Gbps and features locking connectors per the AIA’s USB3 Vision specifications. The cables provide full 5V, 900mA of current and include the ExtremeUSB suite of features, which includes transparent USB extension, true plug and play (no software drivers) and compatibility with all major operating systems, including Windows 8.
