Industrial camera manufacturer, IDS Imaging Development Systems has released the robust GigE uEye FA camera series. The camera housing, lens barrels and connectors fulfill the prerequisites for protection code IP65/67, and protect the whole camera system from dirt, dust, water splashes or cleaning agents as well as accidental shifting of the optics.

The camera series is available with the IDS Software Suite or with GigE Vision.

The screw-on connectors also meet the most demanding industry requirements – an 8-pin M12 connection with X coding for data transmission and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and an 8-pin Binder connector for GPIO, trigger and flash are available. A range of accessories, including cables suitable for use as drag chains, and various screw-on options enhance versatility and facilitate integration.

Suitable for multi-camera operation, an integrated image memory decouples image acquisition from image transfer. Internal camera functions such as pixel preprocessing, LUT or gamma minimise the processing power required.

All models in the uEye FA family are available with the IDS Software Suite with standard IDS plug-and-play, a host of sensor features and easy handling or as a version with support for the GigE Vision standard. CMOS sensors from Sony, ON Semiconductor and e2v are integrated.

The first model of the series will be equipped with IMX249 global shutter CMOS sensor of the Sony PREGIUS series. The sensor offers high image quality and sets standards in terms of light sensitivity, dynamic range and colour reproduction. The cameras deliver 41 fps at full resolution, even in low-light conditions.
