Expansion of the ace 2 Camera Series: 16 New Models with Sony CMOS Sensors and Resolutions of 5 MP and 4K (UHD)
April 3, 2020
In order to offer the best camera selection to Basler customers, we added 16 new ace 2 models with Sony IMX334 CMOS sensors to Basler portfolio shortly after the successful launch of ace 2 camera series. The models have resolutions of 5 megapixels with up to 60 images per second and 8.3 megapixels (4K UHD) with up to 45 images per second. Their sensor size makes the 5 MP camera models an ideal fit for the Basler lenses with a 1/2.5” image circle. Customers can thus get an attractively priced camera and lens combination from one source.
Which application fields are particularly suitable for the camera models?
- Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)
- To check the correct alignment of parts or assemblies in the production of electronic devices, e.g. for smartphones (assembly alignment)
- Pick-and-place robots
To get the best application results, customers have access to additional high-performance functions if needed.
ace 2 with in-camera features Pixel Beyond and Compression Beyond
The ace 2 camera series consists of the Basic and Pro product lines. Highlights include the new high-performance, in-camera features Pixel Beyond and Compression Beyond for more demanding applications.
Pixel Beyond lets customers change the pixel size. This enables them to scale the camera resolution according to their needs and thus reduce the data volume. They can also very conveniently reach optical equivalence with previously used sensors, which reduces the effort for redesigns.
Compression Beyond compresses the image data directly in the camera’s FPGA, in real time and without sacrificing image quality. This frees up more bandwidth, which makes much higher frame rates possible especially when using Gigabit Ethernet (GigE). Customers can thus operate the GigE interface in their system with the same hardware at up to twice the speed.
Accessories portfolio and pylon Camera Software Suite
In addition to the camera, Basler offers an extensive range of accessories, including matching Basler lenses or cables as well as the convenient pylon Camera Software Suite . This software package is comprised of an easy-to-use SDK and drivers and tools that you can use to operate any Basler camera using a Windows or Linux PC or a Mac.
