Product Details Supplier Info More products

IDS NXT vegas is the first product of the new device family. With an integrated 1.3 MP CMOS sensor, an integrated liquid lens, autofocus, LED illumination and a ToF sensor (Time of Flight) for distance measurement, it is fully equipped for many different image processing tasks. Users benefit from the greatest possible flexibility: they can assign their required image processing  task to vision app-based cameras and sensors according to their individual demand.

The flexible Ensenso X 3D GigE camera system is now available with 5 MP cameras featuring Sony’s IMX264 CMOS sensor. They provide up to 20 percent wider field of view and up to 35% greater lateral resolution with almost 30% lower noise compared to the earlier versions. With the new Ensenso SDK 2.2, stereo matching can now be supported by a graphics card. Using the GPU accelerates the processing processes by about five times, depending on the parameterisation. GPU-based stereo matching and the resulting speed advantages can be used with all Ensenso X cameras.

At the Conference, Peter Dietrich will be making presentations entitled: ‘3D Vision – complementing 2D rather than replacing’ and ‘Camera sensitivity – compare and contrast’. The first looks at how 3D data can be combined with 2D information to provide a more effective system when considering challenges like localisation and verification. The second considers the issue of camera sensitivity and how standard committees such as EMVA and ISO try to help sort things out by defining procedures for measuring several key performance parameters of a camera or camera system, respectively.

Private: IDS Imaging Development Systems Ltd

IDS is one of the leading global manufacturers of digital industrial cameras, offering a choice of USB and GigE connectivity. High performance 3D as well as vision app-based, intelligent cameras complete the portfolio. With about 300 employees worldwide, the company sells more than 150,000 industrial cameras every year.

IDS has been developing and producing machine vision products since 1997. It wants to offer the best user experience in the vision market. This underpins its aim of not only delivering top performance for customers but of providing them with distinctive added value.

The high-performance hardware and software for its products is developed at its site in Obersulm, Germany. IDS consistently adapts key future technologies from the consumer world into its cameras to make them suitable for long-term use in equipment, mechanical, and plant engineering in both industrial and non-industrial target sectors. This way, the high-performance, easy-to-use USB, GigE and 3D cameras offer an almost unlimited range of applications. 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.

From day one, it has focused on USB interfaces. It is now a global leader and is among the pioneers in the development of high-performance CMOS cameras with USB 3.1 interfaces. There is no other manufacturer with as much experience in the development and use of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 industrial cameras. IDS’s high-speed Gigabit Ethernet cameras are also world-leading products.

IDS was quick to identify the way things were heading, not just in terms of USB. The sensors we use are also helping to shape the future. Since 2011 its new camera models contain only CMOS sensors and, with more than 10 years of know-how in development and sales, IDS can offer a broad range of sensors.

Every application is different and the range of possible applications involving USB and GigE cameras from IDS is almost unlimited – especially where there are special requirements in terms of the environment, interfaces with other electronic components, or constricted space. The experienced engineering team can develop and build customised special models. The modular concept of its high-performance products and flexibility of the IDS software make it easy.

However, it takes more than a good product to establish a long-term partnership based on trust. IDS offers a complete package with every industrial camera – with comprehensive service before, during, and after your buying decision. Its highly qualified, motivated and meticulously trained employees work hand in hand with you. IDS provides you with defined contacts and regular discussions, as well as support in choosing the right accessories. Whether you need feasibility studies, consulting, training, or technical support, IDS is there for you.
