More Cameras Embrace Sony Sensors

Basler is launching four ace U cameras with the IMX287 and IMX273 sensors from the Sony Pregius series. The four GigE models feature resolutions of VGA and 1.6 megapixels and are equipped with the IMX287 and IMX273 sensors from Sony's Pregius series, delivering up to 291 fps.

 

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.

TE connector, relay and filter solutions can help create a fine maze network of power-cabling to the lights needed for vertical farming. Their solutions are interchangeable, easy-to-install, and will last for years in variable humidity environments.

 

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.

 

The four new ace U GigE cameras include the feature set PGI, a unique combination of 5x5 debayering, color-anti-aliasing, denoising and improved sharpness. The models also offer powerful GigE Vision 2.0 features such as PTP. For more details, visit the ace camera product page.
