Industrial vision technology provider IDS (Woburn, MA, USA) has unveiled its most affordable 10 Megapixel USB 2.0 color camera.

Designed for applications ranging from parts inspection to microscopy, the new uEye UI1495LE-C camera incorporates an Aptina 1/2-inch CMOS progressive scan sensor in 10 Megapixel resolution (3840 x 2748 pixels) or four times the resolution of HDTV. With the added features of Binning, Subsampling and AOI, the camera delivers frame rates up to 14.94 frames/sec at 1920 x 1080 HD resolution and 47.37 FPS at 800 x 600 resolution. Maximum frame rate in freerun mode is 3 fps.

The UI1495LE-C offers OEMs and integrators an imaging solution that can be interfaced into any USB 2.0 equipped component for efficient factory workflow, whether a PC, notebook, IPC or embedded system. Application flexibility is enhanced by the camera's ultra-compact ABS housing, which measures 44mm x 44 mm x 25.4mm (H x W x D) and features C/CS lens mount with adjustable flange back distance.

A comprehensive software package includes drivers for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and Linux. Also included are interfaces for various image processing packages, standard drivers such as DirectShow (WDM), a GenICam interface, as well as the IDS Software Development Kit (SDK) that supports the programming languages integrators use most: C, C++, C#, Microsoft .NET and Visual Basic. IDS also provides 3rd party machine-vision and image-processing software drivers for ActivVision Tools, Common Vision Blox, HALCON, LabView, VisionPro and NeuroCheck.
