NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE
Basler Introduces ace USB 3.0 Camera Series
Cameras are ideal replacement for FireWire cameras and very reliable thanks to the new USB3 Standard
Ahrensburg – At this year’s VISION show in Stuttgart, digital camera specialist Basler is introducing the first ten models featuring a USB 3.0 interface in their ace area scan camera series. The ace USB 3.0 cameras have a very compact 29 mm x 29 mm x 29 mm housing and can readily replace older cameras of similar size and construction, especially those with a FireWire or USB 2.0 interface. Apart from the footprint, certain technical aspects such as high bandwidth, real-time capability, and the sensor selection deliver convincing arguments for users to follow this replacement trend. In the first step, Basler will offer resolutions from VGA to 5 MP capturing up to 120 frames per second. The cameras use modern CMOS sensors and high-quality Sony CCD sensors.
All Basler ace USB 3.0 models are compliant with the USB3 Vision standard. This ensures reliable data transmission, easy integration, greatest possible flexibility in selecting a camera and long-term safeguarding of investment.
The Basler ace series is one of the most popular and best-selling cameras in its class and it is growing to about 50 models with the new USB 3.0 cameras. All Basler ace cameras, whether fitted with a Gigabit Ethernet, Camera Link or the new USB 3.0 interface, provide excellent image quality and outstanding performance for their price.
Product Manager René von Fintel explains: „Users of our USB 3.0 models benefit from the proven ace camera platform. Together with the USB3 Vision Standard, which defines the interface and the interoperability with software and accessories, the camera system becomes very stable and reliable. The combination of high-quality Sony CCD sensors and the very compact housing makes it extremely easy for users to switch from their old FireWire interface to the new USB 3.0 interface.”
