USB Cameras with GenICam Interface
Mar 2009
IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbHRequest Info
OBERSULM, Germany, March 3, 2009 -- For its uEye LE range of USB cameras, IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH now provides a GenICam interface, enabling increased flexibility in camera integration. In combination with the good price-performance ratio of the LE series, the board-level versions offer an interesting solution for systems integrators and OEMs.

With GenICam (Generic Interface for Cameras), the European Machine Vision Association last year introduced a standard for programming industrial cameras – the first to define a manufacturer- and technology-independent programming interface (API) for machine vision applications. Initially developed for GigE cameras, GenICam also can be used for models with USB, FireWire and other interfaces. Users working with cameras from different manufacturers can access all the cameras from one common interface.

IDS_uEye.jpgIDS now provides GenICam also for its uEye LE series, thus making these cameras more interesting for systems integrators and OEMs. Programming with a standardized API quickly pays for itself, especially in frequently changing hardware environments.

The USB cameras of the LE series are available in a CE-B-certified housing version with a C/CS-mount lens connection or as a space-saving board-level version with or without an S-mount lens holder. State-of-the-art monochrome and color CMOS sensors offer resolutions from WVGA (at 87 fps) to up to 5-megapixels.

The camera is supplied with a software development kit and a choice of interfaces and drivers. Besides GenICam, the software package includes a TWAIN interface, a DirectShow/WDM interface and an ActiveX component. A GenICam sample application complete with source code shows users how to integrate the cameras with their own applications, independently of the manufacturer and technology.
