April 26, 2017 – IDS announced that the first industrial cameras from the GigE uEye FA series are now available – the UI-5260FA and UI-5280FA models.
The cameras are equipped with the 2.3 MP IMX249 CMOS sensor and 5 MP IMX264 CMOS sensor from Sony. The GigE industrial cameras with PoE are designed for factory automation. The housing, connectors, lens barrels and cables all meet the requirements for protection class IP65/67 and protect cameras from dirt, dust, water splashes or cleaning agents as well as accidental shifting of the optics. Other features include screw-in connections and Power over Ethernet for single cable operation up to 100 meters. The cameras are available with a choice of the established IDS Software Suite or, in future, GigE Vision firmware.
The UI-5260FA model with Sony IMX249 2.35 megapixel CMOS sensor provides the standard image formats 4:3 and 16:9. At full resolution of 1936 x 1216 pixels, it delivers 47 frames per second.
With its 2/3" Global Shutter IMX264 CMOS sensor (5 megapixels), the UI-5280FA meets the requirements in terms of light sensitivity and dynamics. The NIR sensitivity makes the invisible visible to the human eye and renders a special NIR sensor version obsolete. It delivers images in 4:3 format with a frame rate of 23 fps.
In May 2017, IDS will be launching two more camera models with Global Shutter CMOS sensors from Sony: the UI-5270FA with IMX265 sensor (2045 x 1542 pixels, 36 fps) – currently the best CMOS image sensor in the 3 megapixel class – and the UI-5290FA with IMX267 sensor offering a resolution of 8.9 megapixels (4112 x 2176 pixels).
