OBERSULM, Germany, Aug. 12, 2011 — Imaging Development Systems GmbH has announced that its uEye camera family now has 18 models with a 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensor featuring global shutter readout mode, which is typically available only in more expensive CCD models.

The sensor delivers high frame rates, achieving a readout speed of up to 60 fps at full format, depending upon the interface. Using the optional binning and digital image scaling functions, the 1/1.8-in. sensor from e2v can deliver frame rates of >100 fps, with resolution up to 1280 × 1024 pixels.

In a global shutter system, all rows of the sensor are exposed simultaneously, important for capturing sharp images of fast-moving objects. Because few CMOS sensors support the global shutter method, these applications require flash strobes or the use of CCD cameras. The new CMOS cameras are suitable for applications previously restricted to CCD technology. The company says they equal and, in some cases, surpass state-of-the-art CCD cameras in color fidelity and light sensitivity. The monochrome version also allows image capture under near-infrared illumination conditions.

The sensor has been incorporated in uEye cameras with USB or Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The UI-1240 USB models are offered in the compact SE design, the angled ME design and the splash water-resistant RE design. With a readout speed of 25 fps, the USB models provide smooth live video at full resolution. The SE and RE versions of the UI-5240 GigE series achieve even higher speeds of up to 50 fps, while the HE model delivers 60 fps. Monochrome and color versions are available at the same price level and can replace previous CMOS and CCD models with 1.3-megapixel sensors.

The e2v EV76C560 sensor provides many additional features, including digital scaling functions that allow an almost stepless reduction of the image format with full field of view. The high-precision timing generator supports shorter exposure times (up to 9 µs) than were possible with previous CMOS sensors.

The new models are supported by uEye software version 3.70 and higher.
