Basler ace and IP Cameras with Sony IMX174 and IMX249
The Most Modern CMOS Technology for More Flexibility in ITS Applications
With its new sensors from the Pregius series, Sony has provided a clear improvement for many applications for industrial image processing. Thanks to their exceptional technical characteristics and efficiency, the new IMX174 and IMX249 sensors are suitable for a multitude of traffic applications. Especially the IMX174's broad dynamic range is a major improvement for many ITS applications that are frequently challenged by demanding lighting conditions.
This Product Insight gives an overview of the individual application possibilities in the area of traffic that profit from the improvements of this new sensor models.
Compared with the previous CCD sensor classic for ITS, the ICX285, the IMX174 and IMX249 particularly excel in the following disciplines:
- higher resolution
- higher sensitivity
- very low noise
- high and sufficiently high frame rates
- no disruptive effects
- global shutter technology
As many camera applications in traffic systems work with a combination of industrial and network cameras, and some work also with network cameras alone, Basler has equipped one of its IP camera models with the IMX174.
