OBERSULM, Germany, Nov. 9, 2012 — IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH has introduced the 1.3-megapixel GigE uEye LE industrial camera with GigE Vision imaging. It is supplied in a small, board-level format measuring 45 × 45 mm. It provides mounting flexibility in limited-space applications such as semiconductor inspection, failure analysis, and high-speed/high-resolution imaging. Tailored to the needs of large-volume OEMs, it operates at up to 50 fps at full resolution while enabling the use of cables up to 100 m long. It uses a 1280 × 1024-pixel CMOS sensor from e2v, available in monochrome and color versions, as well as a model with dynamic range in the near-infrared region. Features include digital input/outputs for trigger, flash and pulse-width modulation, and two general-purpose input/outputs. Power (12 to 24 V) is supplied via an external supply. An M12 lens mount from Lensation is available as an option. When used with the proprietary software package 4.01, the e2v sensor provides a new log mode designed for high-dynamic-range images that assures sharp details even in overexposed scenes. The sensor offers rolling shutter, rolling shutter with global start, global shutter and global shutter with alternative timing modes.
