GigE cameras innovations, small footprint, high read rate

Basler Vision Technologies scout2 GigE camera family uses the new 2 and 4 megapixel resolution CMOS sensors from CMOSIS, which reach up to 340 and 180 frames per second respectively. The company will exhibit at Automate Chicago.


Basler scout2 GigE Camera

Basler is introducing a set of ultra-fast, high resolution ace models with a footprint of only 29 mm x 29 mm. These cameras use the new 2 and 4 megapixel resolution CMOS sensors from CMOSIS, which reach up to 340 and 180 frames per second respectively. With a global shutter and a Camera Link interface, this new set of ace camera models purportedly expands the frontiers for a wide range of throughput orientated applications.

Basler will introduce aviator area scan camera models with a GigE interface, Kodak’s latest CCD sensor generation, and resolutions of 1, 2 (4:3 and HDTV), and 4 megapixels and over 100 frames per second.

Basler also offers the scout2 GigE camera family with Power over Ethernet (PoE) and a novel color image enhancement concept with advanced color features. Basler scout2 cameras are primarily equipped with monochrome and color Sony CCD sensors that have resolutions from VGA to 2 megapixels and image capture rates up to 120 frames per second.

At the Automate 2011 show in March, Basler will exhibit its extensive area and line scan camera portfolio and will demonstrate what it calls "ongoing technology and price leadership in the GigE camera segment." Highlights will be the latest ace, aviator, and scout2 area scan camera models that combine great image quality, speed, and many useful features with very attractive pricing.
