Rauscher presents eight new Basler ACE U cameras with Global Shutter CMOS sensors in VGA and 1,6 megapixel resolution delivering up to 520 images / s. The Sony Pregius IMX273 sensor with pixel size of 3,45 μm offers optimum image quality, high speeds and low noise. The IMX287 sensor has twice the pixel size with 6,9 μm edge length.
This results in an increased saturation capacity and a higher dynamic range with the same sensitivity and also low noise. Both sensors feature the Ultra Short Exposure Time feature, which enables extremely short exposure times of up to 1 μs. This makes them suitable for applications with fast movements, such as in the print area. The sensitivity of both sensors extends into the near-infrared region, positioning it as a good alternative to higher-priced, dedicated NIR sensors in applications where low sensitivity in the NIR regime is sufficient, such as electroluminescent inspection or in traffic and security -applications
With their features, the ACE U cameras are ideal as an upgrade for older CCD cameras with low resolutions. For example, the IMX287 CMOS sensor is a good alternative for the CCD sensor ICX618, because the similar pixel format with the same resolution enables a smooth changeover. Due to its significantly better sensor characteristics at a similar price level, the IMX287 offers users additional optimization potential for the entire image processing chain.
These ACE U cameras come with proven GigE and USB 3.0 interfaces and feature the feature set PGI, the combination of 5 x 5 debayering, color anti-aliasing, noise reduction and image sharpness optimization. The GigE cameras also offer powerful GigE Vision 2.0 features such as PTP. Basler's Pylon Camera Software Suite makes it easy to integrate the cameras.
