The XCP camera family in the uEye+ product line by IDS is only 29x29x17mm small and has a completely closed zinc die-cast housing with screwable USB Micro-B connector. Cost-optimized electronics and compatibility with popular lenses (C-mount) make them suitable for price-sensitive applications. Currently, the cameras will go into volume production with ON Semiconductor’s AR0234 2.3MP global shutter sensor and AR0521 5MP rolling shutter sensor. Other sensors will follow.
The Vial Scanner by Schäfter+Kirchhoff (www.sukhamburg.com) was developped for the in-situ imaging of Drosophila pupae and for automated measurement of their size.
