June 27, 2018
Developed as 1:1 replacement for CCD cameras that are based on the popular but discontinued Sony ICX618 CCD image sensor, Basler’s acA640-121gm ace U camera is a monochrome GigE Vision camera with the same optical format, resolution, speed, and pixel size as the CCD-based models.

Developed as 1:1 replacement for CCD cameras that are based on the popular but discontinued SonyICX618 CCD image sensor, Basler’s acA640-121gm ace U camera is a monochrome GigE Vision camera with the same optical format, resolution, speed, and pixel size as the CCD-based models.

The monochrome camera is based on a Sony CMOS replacement for the ICX618 (no model number provided), that offers VGA resolution and up to 130 fps. Basler’s new patented algorithm enables the sensor characteristics of the Sony ICX618 to be reproduced 1:1 without distorting the EMVA values of the camera. With identical exposure scenarios, according to Basler, the new ace U delivers comparable gray values, and at the same working distance, it delivers the same image detail and the same resolution. The company’s pylon Camera Software Suite enables integration of the ace U into applications.
