IDS says its new cameras capture ‘sharp images even with varying object distances’

Imaging Development Systems says its new cameras capture “sharp images even with varying object distances”.

The company has extended the selection of its automatically focusable board-level cameras.

Their practical autofocus function enables uEye LE AF industrial cameras to deliver “perfectly focused images even with frequently changing object distances”, says IDS.

uEye LE AF camera models from IDS feature a practical autofocus function.

Also, IDS now offers additional camera variants with 2.1 and 3.1 MP Sony sensors which provide more flexibility in terms of application design and camera integration.

For the first time, the company also offers models with upright USB Type-C alignment in this product family.

In addition to the previously available uEye LE AF cameras with 6.4 MP (IMX178, 58 fps) and 18.1 MP (AR1820HS, 20 fps) sensors, customers can now also purchase models with 2.1 (IMX290, 120 fps) or 3.1 MP (IMX265, 80 fps).

All cameras feature a USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface, USB Power Delivery – which can be used, for example, to power an LED light source or a photoelectric sensor – and allow the use and control of liquid lenses.

The autofocus function ensures sharp images in the blink of an eye, even if the lens is not physically accessible or if the distance between the lens and the object changes frequently.

The board-level cameras are therefore particularly well-suited for applications in fields such as logistics (for example, for parcel acceptance and sorting) or traffic monitoring.

Due to their compact design with dimensions of only 36 x 36 x 20 mm they also prove their strengths in embedded vision systems.

This means that they are also interesting for integration into small medical or industrial devices.
