With its latest USB 3.0 camera, IDS has the ideal solution for all applications involving critical lighting and speed conditions, in machine vision, biometrics and diagnostics, intelligent transport systems and astronomy, for example. The uEye CP USB 3 camera, equipped with the near-infrared version of the state-of-the-art 4.2-megapixel CMOSIS sensor, delivers twice the near-infrared sensitivity of the standard version of the sensor (16 % vs. 8 %). And defects invisible to the human eye are now visible.
The sensor is particularly well suited to applications in the solar panel and surface inspection sectors. With its 1-inch square optical format and 2048×2048 pixel resolution, the sensor perfectly inspects large or round surfaces, down to the smallest detail. This reduces the number of cameras used and, consequently, overall costs. A range of new IDS-specific functions and the sensor's Global Shutter guarantee detailed, crystal-clear, distortion-free images in all environments.
What's more, the UI-3370 CP-NIR camera is the perfect tool for high-speed computer control in a wide range of applications, and can easily be substituted for a line-scan camera, thanks to its IDS triggering technology, which captures 8,000 images per second.
In addition to this new UI-3370 CP-NIR camera, twelve USB 3 uEye CP models are already available, featuring a wide range of resolutions, from VGA to 5 megapixels, and a very compact, lightweight magnesium housing. With a C-mount lens, lockable USB 3.0 and Hirose connectors, a serial interface and opto-coupled trigger and flash, the cameras integrate easily into industrial applications.
