uEye+ Warp10 cameras from IDS combine high speed and high resolution

See more, see better! New 10GigE cameras with onsemi XGS sensors up to 45 MP

In industrial automation, the optimisation of processes is often primarily about higher efficiency and accuracy. 10GigE cameras, such as those in the uEye Warp10 camera family from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH, set standards here. They enable high-speed image processing in Gigabit Ethernet-based networks even with large amounts of data and over long cable distances. For even more precision, the company is now introducing new models with sensors up to 45 MP that reliably capture even the smallest details.

The new industrial cameras are equipped with the onsemi global shutter sensors XGS20000 (20 MP, 1.3″), XGS30000 (30 MP, 1.5″) and XGS45000 (45 MP, 2″). They are primarily used in high-precision quality assurance tasks when motion blur needs to be minimised and data needs to be quickly available on the network. The 10GigE cameras offer up to ten times the transmission bandwidth of 1GigE cameras and are about twice as fast as cameras with USB3 interfaces.

Accuracy and speed go hand in hand when it comes to these models. This has advantages for many applications, e.g. in inspection systems for status and end checks at production lines with high cycle rates – such as semiconductor or solar panel inspection. Users also benefit from the fact that even large scenes and image sections can be precisely monitored and evaluated with these cameras. This proves its worth, for example, in logistics tasks for incoming goods and in the warehouse.

The large format onsemi XGS sensors require correspondingly large optics. Therefore, unlike the previous uEye+ Warp10 models, they are equipped with a TFL mount (M35x0.75). For secure mounting, TFL lenses can be firmly screwed to the cameras. The flange focal distance is standardised and, at 17.526 mm, the same as for the previously available cameras with C-mount. To ensure optimal image quality, IDS recommends the use of Active Heat Sinks. They can be mounted both on and under the models, reduce the operating temperature and are optionally available as accessories.

Quickly available in six different housing variants | IDS adds numerous new USB3 cameras to its product range

Anyone who needs quickly available industrial cameras for image processing projects is not faced with an easy task due to the worldwide chip shortage. IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH has therefore been pushing the development of alternative USB3 hardware generations with available, advanced semiconductor technology in recent months and has consistently acquired components for this purpose. Series production of new industrial cameras with USB3 interface and Vision Standard compatibility has recently started. In the CP and LE camera series of the uEye+ product line, customers can choose the right model for their applications from a total of six housing variants and numerous CMOS sensors.

The models of the uEye CP family are particularly suitable for space-critical applications thanks to their distinctive, compact magnesium housing with dimensions of only 29 x 29 x 29 millimetres and a weight of around 50 grams. Customers can choose from global and rolling shutter sensors from 0.5 to 20 MP in this product line. Those who prefer a board-level camera instead should take a look at the versatile uEye LE series. These cameras are available with coated plastic housings and C-/CS-mount lens flanges as well as board versions with or without C-/CS-mount or S-mount lens connections. They are therefore particularly suitable for projects in small device construction and integration in embedded vision systems. IDS initially offers the global shutter Sony sensors IMX273 (1.6 MP) and IMX265 (3.2 MP) as well as the rolling shutter sensors IMX290 (2.1 MP) and IMX178 (6.4 MP). Other sensors will follow.

The USB3 cameras are perfectly suited for use with IDS peak thanks to the vision standard transport protocol USB3 Vision®. The Software Development Kit includes programming interfaces in C, C++, C# with .NET and Python as well as tools that simplify the programming and operation of IDS cameras while optimising factors such as compatibility, reproducible behaviour and stable data transmission. Special convenience features reduce application code and provide an intuitive programming experience, enabling quick and easy commissioning of the cameras.
