Popular Camera Family Adds Higher-Res Models with 20 MP Resolution

Basler adds four more ace U camera models with the rolling shutter CMOS sensor IMX183 from the Sony Exmor R series. The cameras offer a resolution of 20 megapixels with a sensor size of 1 in. and a compact 29 mm x 29 mm footprint. This combination makes the four new ace U models viable for inspection of the finest structures, such as in PCB or display production.

 

Constant increases in the resolution of modern displays require ever-higher resolutions in the inspecting camera. The latest ace U models feature Basler's PGI feature set for color and monochrome cameras, which corrects unwanted artifacts. This allows users a particularly good image evaluation at the pixel level.

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

The innovative BI (back-illuminated) sensor technology of the Sony IMX183 provides reliable sensitivity and low noise at a pixel size of 2.4 µm. With this particularly light-sensitive sensor, the cameras offer impressive image quality even in low light conditions.

 

All four ace U cameras are available with GigE and USB 3.0 interfaces and include the feature set PGI, a unique combination of 5x5 Debayering, Color-Anti-Aliasing, Denoising and Improved Sharpness. The GigE models also offer powerful GigE Vision 2.0 features such as PTP. The pylon Camera Software Suite from Basler ensures a fast and simple integration of the ace cameras.
