New USB 3.1 Gen 1 cameras with the PYTHON 480 sensor from ON Semiconductor
IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH is adding two new sensors to its LE USB 3.1 Gen 1 camera series.
These versatile cameras are available as a single board camera without a lens holder, as a single board camera with an S mount or CS/C mount, or as a housed version with a C/CS mount. With its miniature dimensions – the single board solution measures just 36 x 36 mm – it can be integrated in the tightest of spaces, with applications in instrument manufacturing and microscopy.
The new models feature the extremely cost-effective global shutter SVGA (800 x 600 pixel) PYTHON 480 sensor from ON Semiconductor and the 3.2 megapixel IMX265 sensor from Sony. Equipped with the new Type C connector, these cameras utilise the latest USB3.1 interface standard with data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps and support USB Power Delivery when used in conjunction with version 4.82 of the IDS Software Suite.
The UI-3130LE model is the first industrial camera with the PYTHON 480 sensor. The global shutter sensor offers frame rates up to 135 fps and is especially suitable for price-sensitive OEM projects. The UI-3270LE camera with the 3.2 megapixel IMX265 sensor from Sony targets users who demand the highest standards when it comes to image quality. The IMX265 is currently one of the best global shutter sensors on the market.
To accommodate all kinds of installation situations, the board-level camera can also be ordered with a horizontal or vertical USB Type-C connector. A 10-pin I/O SMD connector with a 5 V power supply, trigger and flash, as well as two GPIOs further highlight the camera's great flexibility. When used in conjunction with USB Power Delivery, the camera can use this connector to power an LED light, for example.
The IDS Software Suite, which is included with the camera, provides the best possible support for all functions of the USB PD-capable camera and the sensors. The software package includes drivers for Windows, Linux, and Linux Embedded, as well as many other useful tools that make the camera easy to manage and configure. It is identical for all IDS cameras, regardless of whether they have a USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB 3.1, or GigE connection, which greatly facilitates the interchangeability of the individual models if the application requirements change.
