Strong and sturdy: uEye FA industrial cameras are particularly robust and therefore ideally suited for demanding environmental conditions, for example in factory automation. IDS Imaging Development Systems now offers three new sensors in the family: The 12 MP (IMX226) and 20.44 MP (IMX183) Sony sensors are true high-performers with high resolution and low noise. For special requirements, the company also integrates the 5 MP polarization sensor IMX250MZR.
Housing of the uEye FA models, lens tubes and the screwable connectors (8-pin M12 Ethernet connector with X-coding and 8-pin Binder connector) meet the requirements of protection class IP65/67. The GigE cameras can be operated either with 12-24 V or alternatively as a PoE setup (Power-over-Ethernet). PoE enables practical single-cable operation up to a maximum length of 100 m. The cameras are typically used for machine vision tasks in industrial plants and quality assurance. Software support is provided, for example, by the modern IDS peak SDK.
Both the 12 MP rolling shutter sensor IMX226 (4000 x 3000 px) and the 20.44 MP rolling shutter sensor IMX183 (5536 x 3692 px) are part of the Sony STARVIS series. Thanks to BSI technology ("back-side illumination") they are characterized by exceptional light sensitivity and low noise. The 5 MP polarization sensor IMX250MZR also enables interesting application scenarios. It shows its strengths especially in low contrast or reflective light and helps to detect scratches on surfaces or the stress distribution within transparent objects. This makes details visible that remain hidden from other sensors.
About IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH:
The industrial camera manufacturer IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH develops high-performance, easy-to-use USB, GigE and 3D cameras with a wide spectrum of sensors and variants. The almost unlimited range of applications covers multiple non-industrial and industrial sectors in the field of equipment, plant and mechanical engineering. In addition to the successful CMOS cameras, the company expands its portfolio with vision app-based, intelligent cameras. The novel image processing platform IDS NXT is freely programmable and extremely versatile.
Since its foundation in 1997 as a two-man company, IDS has developed into an independent, ISO-certified family business with more than 330 employees. The headquarters in Obersulm, Germany, is both a development and production site. With branches in the USA, Japan, South Korea and UK as well as other offices, IDS is represented internationally.
