Basler (Ahrensburg, Germany) has begun production of four new ace U GigE models.
The models extend the ace U product line in the range of lower resolutions up to 1.6 MP.
They feature resolutions of VGA and 1.6 megapixels and are equipped with the IMX287 and IMX273 sensors from Sony’s Pregius series, and deliver up to 291 frames per second.
The IMX273 sensor offers Pregius image quality, high speeds and low noise. The IMX287 sensor has twice the pixel size with an edge length of 6.9 µm. This results in an increased saturation capacity and a higher dynamic range with the same sensitivity and also low noise.
Both sensors feature the Ultra Short Exposure Time Mode, which enables extremely short exposure times of up to one microsecond (1 µs). This makes the cameras suitable for applications with fast movement, such as in the print sector. With their features, the four ace U models are also ideally suited as upgrades for CCD cameras with low resolutions.
The four new ace U GigE cameras include the feature set PGI, a unique combination of 5×5 debayering, color-anti-aliasing, denoising and improved sharpness. The models also offer GigE Vision 2.0 features such as PTP.
