OBERSULM, Germany, March 9, 2011 — Imaging Development Systems GmbH now offers its GigE uEye CP industrial cameras with the new 1.3-megapixel global shutter ½-in. CMOS sensor from e2v Technologies.
The UI-5240CP Power over Ethernet (PoE) industrial camera combines high light sensitivity, good color fidelity and a fast frame rate with the features of the Gigabit Ethernet interface and a design consistent with industry applications. These include a robust magnesium housing, screw-on connectors, and optically isolated digital inputs and outputs. With PoE, the camera is supplied with electricity via the data cable, making an additional power cable obsolete.
As an alternative to PoE, the camera can still be supplied with a 12- to 24-V external power source. Measuring 29 × 29 × 41 mm, it provides plug-and-play convenience and is more powerful than USB models, according to the company. It also enables the use of a longer connecting cable of up to 100 m.
The camera operates at 50 fps. Up to four areas of interest and a line-scan mode are available; the latter enables operation as a line-scan camera with horizontal resolution of 1280 pixels at 64 kHz. Available in monochrome and color versions, the sensor’s global shutter makes it suitable for use with moving objects.
Features include 32-MB internal memory, a field-programmable gate array for look-up table operations, 10- and 12-bit color depth, lockable connectors, external trigger, a 5.3 × 5.3 pixel size and a C-mount lens.
Besides the 1.3-megapixel model, the GigE uEye CP is available in other versions, with resolutions of up to 5 megapixels.
