WOBURN, Mass., Dec. 2, 2014 — A new camera module provides legally compliant documentation of the sterilization and packing process in medical facilities. The new XS mini USB cameras from IDS Imaging Development Systems incorporate EuroSDS software from IBD Datentechnik. Images of individual sterile goods, or entire sets, are captured and archived directly at the packing station. Integrated in the master data for the instruments, these images allow the operator to combine and pack the sets. Video sequences can be integrated in the packing list as a link. Automatic features maintain image quality under difficult lighting and ambient conditions. A 5-MP Aptina CMOS sensor and autofocus function deliver sharp images from distances down to 10 cm. The integrated lens has a 53° horizontal angle of view to correspond to a focal length of 35 mm.
