Switching to USB 3.0

CHOOSE THE CAMERA THAT’S ALWAYS A SURE BET. All USB 3.0 cameras aren’t created equally. That’s why you should make the switch from FireWire to USB 3.0 technology today, with the Basler ace. Unlike some USB 3.0 cameras, the Basler ace is fully compliant with the USB3 Vision Standard — a standard Basler knows best, because we spearheaded its development. It’s easy to configure, easy to use — and it connects your business to the future of vision technology today. Most importantly, every Basler ace is factory-tested for perfect mechanical, electrical, and optical performance.

In the following video, our Applications Engineering Manager Matthew Breit introduces the new ace USB 3.0 area scan cameras to you. Here's the most important key data at a glance:

  • Models from VGA to 14 MP resolution and 750 frames per second
  • High-quality and field-proven CCD and CMOS sensors
  • Ultra compact housing: 29 mm x 29 mm x 29 mm
  • Stable bandwidth of 350 MB/s
  • 56 MB frame buffer, image pre-processing, and many more useful features
  • 100% USB3 Vision Standard compliant

Matt Breit explains: “From FireWire customers specifically, we’ve been seeing a growing demand to provide them a new interface which is more powerful and up to date. Not only do they wish to increase their systems’ performance, but they are also seeing that FireWire is declining in the market. And as demand decreases, the cost of components and accessories increase, leading to a significant drop in the price/performance ratio that they can offer their customers. USB 3.0 would be a perfect replacement because it combines the simplicity of Plug-n-Play with the power of larger bandwidth, lowest CPU load, and the most precise realtime capability. This confirms our belief in the interface and makes us very excited!”
