In Series Production: ace U with Sony STARVIS Sensors
The series production of eight new ace U models with the IMX178 and IMX226 sensors from Sony's STARVIS line is now starting. They offer resolutions of 6 and 12 megapixels and deliver up to 59 frames per second. The eight new models are the first Basler cameras to feature innovative back-illuminated rolling shutter CMOS sensors. They stand out with their extremely high sensitivity at small pixel sizes of 2.4 µm (IMX178) or 1.85 µm (IMX226). A special aspect of these sensors is the very low dark noise of only three electrons, combined with a quantum efficiency of over 80%. With these particularly light-sensitive sensors, the eight new ace U cameras deliver high image quality even in low light conditions. They also offer an excellent price/performance ratio. This makes the new ace U cameras particularly suitable for applications in the areas of manual light or fluorescence microscopy, as well as in the electronics industry for less complex assembly systems.
All new ace U models are available with the proven GigE or USB 3.0 interface, and conform to GigE Vision 2.0 or the USB3 Vision standard. The GigE models excel with high-performance GigE Vision 2.0 features such as PTP. The ace U color models also include the PGI feature set--the unique combination of 5x5 debayering, color anti-aliasing, denoising and improved sharpness.
