The new PyuEye interface allows interactive programming of uEye industrial cameras from IDS using the object-oriented Python programming language. Python is a high-level general-purpose programming language comparable to Perl, Ruby, Scheme, or Java and can be applied to many different classes of problems. The PyuEye interface is ideal for prototyping uEye camera applications for all supported uEye platforms (Windows, Linux, Linux Embedded).

Python combines remarkable power with very clear syntax, making programs easier to read. Since it Is an easy-to-use language, Python allows users to concentrate on the problem rather than focusing on the syntax. It is ideal for prototype development and other ad-hoc programming tasks, without compromising maintainability. Its interactive mode makes it easy to write and test small code snippets without the complex setup of a development environment with a toolchain.

Python is supplied with a large standard library that supports many common programming tasks such as connecting to web servers, searching text with regular expressions, and reading and modifying files. It can be readily extended by adding new modules implemented in a compiled language such as C or C++.

PyuEye is a lean wrapper implementation of Python function objects that represent uEye API functions. As there is no intelligence in the PyuEye interface, it is as close as possible to the uEye C API and always up-to-date.

IDS Imaging Development Systems Ltd

IDS is one of the leading global manufacturers of digital industrial cameras, offering a choice of USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB 3.1, and GigE connectivity. With some 220 employees worldwide, the company sells around 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.

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 and non-industrial target sectors.

All of its cameras are supplied with the IDS software suite which provides commonality of operation across all camera types and can easily handle a mixed operation of USB 2.0, USB 3.0, and GigE uEye cameras. The high-performance hardware and software for its cameras is developed at its site in Obersulm, Germany.

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 suite 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.
