Tiny body, immense potential: weighing only 12 grams and with extremely compact dimensions of 26.5 x 23 x 21.5 mm, the latest uEye XS camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH finds its place everywhere. Its fast autofocus is a special highlight among the numerous auto functions. It delivers consistently sharp images starting from distances of only 10 cm. The 5 MP industrial camera will be available from May 2019.

The new UI-1007XS replaces the previous UI-1005XS model but retains similar performance, appearance and functionality. The USB 2.0 camera has a robust magnesium housing and stands out due to its light weight, compact size and many practical automatic functions.

Maike Strecker, uEye Product Manager, explains: “The XS combines the simplicity of a consumer camera with the application capabilities of an industrial camera. Thanks to its 5 megapixel OmniVision CMOS sensor and helpful functions such as automatic white balance, automatic exposure and autofocus, the camera delivers excellent images even in difficult lighting conditions.”

In JPEG mode, the model delivers 15 frames per second and up to 30 fps at reduced resolution. In addition, eight freely selectable and easily switchable image formats from VGA to 5 MP are available. In combination with the integrated JPEG compression, the mini camera is also suitable for video streaming with 720p (HD-ready) or 1080p (Full HD). It can therefore be used in a variety of ways, for example in medical or security technology, in transport and logistics or as a component for kiosk systems.

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.
