OBERSULM, Germany, Jan. 2, 2013 — IDS Imaging Development Systems has expanded its industrial camera portfolio with a new version of the GigE uEye RE series. Offering Power-over-Ethernet, it allows both power and data to be transferred by a single cable, resulting in greater flexibility when integrated into machine vision systems. The camera is suited for harsh industrial environments with features such as a lockable, dust-tight, spray- and water-resistant M12 circular connector that conforms to IP67, and optically decoupled digital input/outputs as well as two general-purpose input/outputs. It also offers M5 mounting holes on all sides for flexible positioning, along with an I2C bus for triggering peripheral devices. In combination with protective lens tubes, the camera meets protection classes IP65 and IP67. It offers plug-and-play as well as easy software integration, thanks to its comprehensive software development kit. A 60-MB in-camera memory stores images that can be transferred at a later time, enabling pre- and post-trigger image capture.
