Basler adds 20 to its ace camera series

Basler (Ahrensburg, Germany) has added 20 new high-resolution cameras to its ace range.

The new cameras feature IMX sensors from Sony’s Pregius and STARVIS lines, with the latest global and rolling shutter technology.

The ace range is now the largest camera series in the industrial processing market, with 120 models. And for convenience, these have now been categorized into three product lines: ace classic, ace U and ace L.

Of the 20 new models, 12 are equipped with the IMX253, IMX255, IMX267 and IMX304 sensors from Sony’s Pregius line, and form the Basler ace L product line.

The other eight new cameras come with the IMX178 and IMX226 sensors from Sony’s STARVIS line, and join the Basler ace U product line.

The 12 are well-suited especially for applications in highly automated 3D inspection systems, or in traffic monitoring, for example in tolling, said Basler. They offer resolutions of 9 and 12 megapixels and frame rates of up to 40 fps. State-of-the-art global shutter technology ensures distortion-free images, even at high speeds.

The eight new cameras are targeted at microscopy applications and less complex automation tasks in the electronics industry. They ae equipped with the latest rolling shutter technology and feature high resolutions of 6 and 12 megapixels with up to 59 frames per second. The innovative BI (back-illuminated) sensor technology provides outstanding sensitivity at a small pixel size of 2.4 µm (IMX178), or 1.85 µm (IMX226). With these particularly light-sensitive sensors, said Basler, the eight new ace cameras offer excellent image quality even in low light conditions.

All new ace models are available with the GigE, or USB 3.0 interface, and conform to GigE Vision 2.0, or the USB3 Vision standard. Basler’s pylon Camera Software Suite also ensures a fast and simple integration of the ace cameras. All 20 models are available as design-in-samples.
