The New ace 2: the Right Dose of ace for Any Need

The New ace 2: the Right Dose of ace for Any Need

You’re prepared to perfection with the new Basler camera series ace 2. With two product lines – ace 2 Basic and ace 2 Pro – Basler gives you a choice between

  • ace 2 Basic: a camera designed for the standard requirements of a vision system in terms of functionality and economy, which fulfills these tasks with the familiar reliability, and.
  • ace 2 Pro: a camera for more sophisticated tasks, whose new and unique in-camera features - Compression Beyond and Pixel Beyond - as well as its proven PGI Feature Set offer you maximum performance exactly where it is needed – in your application.

For you, this means: cost reductions thanks to a higher throughput, no elaborate redesign when switching from CCD to CMOS, the latest sensor technology at attractive prices and the reliable durability of Basler products. When everything combines in one camera series you get: ace 2.

Four models in each of the product lines ace 2 Basic and ace 2 Pro kick off the new camera series. They have Sony’s IMX392 sensor, a 2.3 mega pixel resolution and deliver up to 100 fps in the GigE version and up to 160 fps with a USB 3.0 interface.

Both ace 2 product lines are equipped with state-of-the-art CMOS sensors and an optimized hardware design. Both offer excellent image quality and are compatible with Basler’s accessory portfolio at an attractive price. With Compression Beyond and Pixel Beyond, the ace 2 Pro offers two features that contribute directly to optimized performance in your vision application.

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 in turn makes higher frame rates possible. Additionally, the image data can be stored in full resolution in compressed form, requiring less storage space. This cuts costs.

With Pixel Beyond you can change the image’s pixel size and thus influence important sensor characteristics such as resolution or SNR. To put it simply, this feature makes it possible to simulate other sensor models. If needed, for example, this would make it easy to introduce a redesign without having to reconfigure the entire vision system.
