Four Aces Get Two Sony Sensors

Four new ace U USB 3.0 models from camera manufacturer Basler feature resolutions of VGA and 1.6 megapixels and have now moved into series production. They are equipped with the IMX287 and IMX273 sensors from Sony's Pregius series and deliver up to 525 frames per second.

 

The IMX273 sensor offers the well-known outstanding Pregius image quality, high speeds and low noise. The IMX287 sensor, on the other hand, 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 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 particularly attractive 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. Additionally, the cameras include the feature set PGI, a unique combination of 5x5 debayering, color-anti-aliasing, denoising and improved sharpness.
