The new compact and powerful uEye XLE camera family from IDS has been specially developed for high-volume and price-sensitive projects.
Possessing a space-saving design, practical USB3 interface and support of the USB3 Vision Standard, the industrial cameras can be easily integrated into any machine vision system.
Users can choose between single-board cameras with or without C-/CS-mount or S-mount as well as variants with coated plastic housing. The first models will be equipped with the light-sensitive 5 MP sensor ON Semiconductor.
“It will prove its worth in small appliance construction, measurement technology, transport and even agricultural applications,” said Jürgen Hejna, product manager at IDS.
The cameras also show their strengths in classic industrial applications such as surface inspection. Thanks to their compact dimensions, the models fit into the smallest of spaces, for example as embedded vision solutions. The price-optimised design makes the cameras particularly interesting for applications where costs are the main concern. Therefore, the company also offers a large number of inexpensive lenses for the cameras.
All uEye XLE models feature a USB3 interface (SuperSpeed USB, 5 Gbps) and are 100 percent GenICam-compliant. The cameras can be used with any software that supports the USB3 Vision Standard. For an optimal user experience, it is recommended to use in conjunction with IDS peak. The free SDK includes all necessary components from source code samples to transport layer, so that customers can start developing their own applications right away.
