XS: Mini USB camera with fast autofocus

IDS

The latest uEye XS camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems has a tiny body, weighing only 12 grams and dimensions of 26.5 x 23 x 21.5 mm. The company said its fast autofocus is a special highlight among the numerous auto functions. It delivers consistently sharp images starting from distances of only 10 cm. The 5 MP industrial camera is available now.

The new UI-1007XS replaces the previous UI-1005XS model, but retains similar performance, appearance and functionality. The USB 2.0 camera has a robust magnesium housing and stands out due to its lightweight, compact size and many practical automatic functions.

Maike Strecker, uEye Product Manager, said: “The XS combines the simplicity of a consumer camera with the application capabilities of an industrial camera. Thanks to its 5 megapixel OmniVision CMOS sensor and helpful functions such as automatic white balance, automatic exposure and autofocus, the camera delivers excellent images even in difficult lighting conditions.”

In JPEG mode, the model delivers 15 frames per second and up to 30 fps at reduced resolution. In addition, eight freely selectable and easily switchable image formats from VGA to 5 MP are available. In combination with the integrated JPEG compression, the mini camera is also suitable for video streaming with 720p (HD-ready) or 1080p (Full HD). It can therefore be used in a variety of ways, for example in medical or security technology, in transport and logistics or as a component for kiosk systems.
