High Resolution, Low MP Price: ace 2 High-res
The 24 new models of the ace 2 Basic and ace 2 Pro series raise the resolution of compact industrial cameras with C-mount format to new dimensions: With 16, 20 and 24 megapixels, frame rates from 4 to 23 fps depending on resolution and interface (USB 3.0 / GigE), as well as the small pixel size of only 2.74 µm and the compact sensor size, they meet the demand for high-resolution cameras in restricted environments such as embedded vision systems.
With the strengths of the IMX540, IMX541 and IMX542 sensors from Sony's Pregius S series, the ace 2 Basic and ace 2 Pro come into full effect: The combination of small pixel size, backside-illuminated structure (BSI) and global shutter ensures recordings without any motion artifacts even at high speeds. Despite the small pixel size, the light sensitivity of the sensors remains at a similarly high level as with sensors of previous generations.
The higher number of small pixels on the sensor surface increases the resolution capacity up to 24 MP - in combination with selected lenses from Basler's accessory portfolio, even the smallest details can be seen more precisely. For example, Basler's C11 Premium Lenses or the lenses of the FUJINON CF-ZA-1S series are ideal for the new ace 2 High-res models. This means that different camera-lens combinations are available to achieve an optimized price/performance ratio and maximum resolution capacity.
This high resolution capacity takes into account the current trend of miniaturization of components and allows a very reasonable price per megapixel resolution. A further cost advantage results on the hardware side: For example, one 24 MP camera can replace two 12 MP cameras.
The new high-resolution models complement the extensive range of the ace 2 camera family. The price-conscious ace 2 Basic for standard vision applications, as well as the ace 2 Pro with the powerful features Compression Beyond and Pixel Beyond for demanding applications, offer a wide range of applications for a multitude of computer vision tasks.
