Now in Series Production: ace U with 20 MP Resolution and Sony IMX183 Sensor
Four new ace U models with the rolling shutter IMX183 CMOS sensor from the Sony Exmor R series are expanding the portfolio of our most successful camera series, the ace. The cameras offer a resolution of 20 megapixels with a 1″ sensor size and a compact design with 29 x 29 mm footprint. They feature frame rates of up to 17 frames per second. These qualities make the four new ace U models particularly attractive for the inspection of the finest structures, such as those in PCB or display production. Considering the constantly increasing resolutions of modern displays, the latter requires continuously higher resolutions in the inspecting cameras.
The four new high-resolution ace U models offer Basler’s unique PGI feature set for color and monochrome cameras, which corrects unwanted artefacts. This provides you with a particularly good evaluation on a pixel level. As a result, we enable a detailed inspection of high-resolution displays with excellent image quality at a very attractive price.
The innovative BI (back-illuminated) sensor technology of the Sony IMX183 provides outstanding sensitivity and low noise at a small pixel size of 2.4 µm. With this particularly light-sensitive sensors, the four new ace cameras offer excellent image quality even in low light conditions.
The traffic sector is another area for potential applications, since the monitoring of multiple traffic lanes often requires only a single ace U 20 MP camera, as is the land survey field, in which light, high-resolution cameras are needed for recordings of large or difficult to access areas from the air.
All four new ace U models are available with a GigE and USB 3.0 interface and include the PGI feature set, the unique combination of 5x5 Debayering, Color-Anti-Aliasing, Denoising and Improved Sharpness. The GigE models also excel with high-performance GigE Vision 2.0 features such as PTP. Our pylon Camera Software Suite ensures the fast and simple integration of the ace cameras.
