Ahrensburg, 31 July 2013 – Camera manufacturer Basler has added nine new models to its ace GigE cameras series. The new models feature 1.3 and 2 MP CMOS sensors from e2v and Aptina and can capture up to 60 frames per second (fps). The various monochrome and color cameras models are available with global or rolling shutter as well as in NIR-optimized variants or the HDTV format. With these newcomers Basler's selection of GigE cameras has grown to over 30 models, ensuring that the right camera is available for an extremely broad range of applications. Product Manager Jana Bartels explains: "This selection of GigE cameras is unparalleled in the industry. Our customer can find suitable cameras for all areas of image processing, from entry-level to high-end applications. With the nine new CMOS models, we've further expanded our GigE portfolio and reinforced our market leadership in the area of GigE."
The models with 1.3 MP resolution and 60 fps are available either with global shutter (acA1300-60) or a more economical rolling shutter (acA1280-60). There is also an NIR-optimized version (acA1300-60 NIR).
The 2 MP models are available with 60 fps and global shutter (acA1600-60). Basler also offers monochrome and color variants with 25 fps in an HDTV format and with rolling shutter (acA1920-25). The rolling shutter models represent a price/performance ratio previously unseen on the 2 MP market, with the popular HDTV format. They open up the use of powerful digital cameras for the first time in the price-sensitive entry level market, such as for the monitoring of processes or equipment and for measurement applications.
The new Basler ace CMOS cameras are remarkable for their low noise levels and very strong sensitivity. They deliver excellent images, especially for fast-moving applications. This makes them perfect for a wide range of applications, including semi-conductor and electronics production, traffic applications, the solar industry and the pharmaceutical industry.
