Eight new Basler ace U cameraswith back-illuminated rolling shutter CMOS image sensors from Sony’s STARVIS line are now in series production. The newly-available cameras are based on two sensors from the STARVIS line, including the 6.4 MPixel IMX178 sensor, which features a 2.4 µm pixel size and a frame rate of 59 fps via USB 3.0 and 16 fps via GigE interface. The other cameras are based on the 12.2 MPixel IMX226 sensor, which features a 1.85 µm pixel size and a frame rate of 31 fps via USB 3.0 and 8 fps via GigE.
A special aspect of the sensors is the very low dark noise of only three electrons, combined with a quantum efficiency of over 80%. This enables the sensors to deliver high image quality in low light conditions, according to Basler. Available in color and monochrome models, Basler ace U cameras feature either a GigE or USB 3.0 interface and conform to both the GigE Vision 2.0 or USB3 Vision standard.
