Basler (Ahrensburg, German) has started production of its ace U cameras with Sony STARVIS Sensors.
The models have back-illuminated rolling shutter CMOS sensors from Sony’s STARVIS line. The eight new models feature resolutions of 6 and 12 megapixels, and are equipped with the IMX178 and IMX226 sensors from Sony’s STARVIS line, and deliver up to 59 frames per second.
Basler said that the cameras stand out with their extremely high sensitivity at small pixel sizes of 2.4 µm (IMX178) or 1.85 µm (IMX226). What’s more, a special aspect of these sensors is the very low dark noise of only three electrons, combined with a quantum efficiency of over 80%.
The company also said that the new ace U cameras are particularly suitable for applications in the area of manual light or fluorescence microscopy as well as in the electronics industry for less complex assembly systems.
All new ace U models are available with the proven GigE or USB 3.0 interface, and conform to GigE Vision 2.0 or the USB3 Vision standard. The ace U color models also include the PGI feature set, the unique combination of 5×5 debayering, color-anti-aliasing, denoising and improved sharpness.
