Like a webcam, but for industry

With the uEye XC, IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH recently launched an industrial camera with autofocus that is just as easy to operate as a webcam. Setting up and commissioning the 13MP USB3 camera only requires a cable connection. It then delivers high-resolution, detailed images and videos and can easily manage changing object distances. Unlike webcams from the consumer sector, uEye XC is specially designed for industrial requirements. Its components score with long availability – a must for industrial applications. To celebrate the launch, the company is offering the useful uEye XC Starter Set with many accessories for only 399 euros until the end of November.

With the new uEye XC Starter Set, customers get a comprehensive package that allows to evaluate and use the full range of functions of the 13MP autofocus camera. Unlike products from the consumer sector, it has been specially developed for use in industrial applications and delivers sharp images and videos even under changing light conditions – benefiting, for example, kiosk systems, applications in industrial production or in diagnostics.

The set includes not only the camera, tripod and cable, but also a macro lens. Thanks to this lens, the camera with the AR1335 rolling shutter colour sensor from onsemi is also suitable for demanding applications at close range, because it easily shortens the minimum possible object distance and thus opens up additional application possibilities.

With dimensions of only 32x61x19mm (WxHxD) and screwable USB Micro B connection, the camera can be easily integrated into image processing systems. Its 13MP onsemi sensor delivers 20fps at full resolution and ensures high image quality even in changing light conditions thanks to BSI (“Back Side Illumination”) pixel technology. Useful functions such as 24x digital zoom, auto white balance and colour correction ensure that all details can be captured perfectly.

From process and quality assurance to kiosk systems, logistics automation and medical technology: the autofocus camera can be used in a variety of ways in both industrial and non-industrial areas.
