The uEye CP camera with 20 MP sensor captures the smallest details

When the smallest details are important for applications, high-resolution images with particularly low noise are required. Both are features that make the Sony IMX183 20 MP sensor stand out. IDS now offers this sensor in the uEye CP camera family with USB3 Vision interface. The new models are well-suited for challenging image evaluations and are also extremely compact thanks to their dimensions of only 29 x 29 x 29 millilitres.
The rolling shutter sensor from the Sony STARVIS series delivers fast 19.5 fps and, thanks to BSI technology (“back-side-illumination”), ensures outstanding image quality and accurate image reproduction – even under poor or fluctuating lighting conditions. Thanks to the particularly detailed and low-noise images, the camera is suitable for applications such as surface and display inspections, medical technology applications or traffic surveillance. Integration into the uEye SE family with USB3 Vision interface is already planned. Then, in addition to versions with housings, board level variants with different lens holder options will also be available.
The Vision cameras can be supported, for example, by the new IDS peak SDK (Software Development Kit). It is based on the EMVA and AIA standards and can be used with all GigE Vision and USB3 Vision cameras – regardless of the manufacturer. To ensure a smooth start, IDS peak comes with numerous source code examples. The advantages include, amongst others, the “It’s so easy!” programming interface developed by IDS, which means that users no longer have to work directly with GenTL and GenAPI. In addition, convenience classes reduce programming effort and error sources.

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.
