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.
