The uEye XS camera with autofocus by IDS is designed to deliver crisp images from close range and can be integrated into almost any imaging system. Courtesy: IDSIDS Imaging Development Systems' uEye XS camera with autofocus is designed to integrate into virtually any imaging system, ranging from interactive kiosks and embedded systems using the Raspberry Pi, to traditional applications in medical technology, industrial quality control, microscopy, and access control.

The integrated autofocus optical system helps deliver a crisp image from distances of just 10 cm, either automatically or manually using software. The associated API function also enables the current focus position to be read. Digital zoom allows easy and almost continuous enlargement of smaller sections of the image. A range of automatic image control functions, including auto white balance, auto gain and auto exposure time, are performed in the camera itself. This considerably reduces CPU utilization, while also enabling easy processing of the images captured independently of the PC system.   

Featuring the 5 megapixel Aptina CMOS sensor with a pixel size of 1.4 ┬Ám, the uEye XS camera delivers detailed, true color images in a choice of seven fixed image formats ranging from 5 MP (2592 x 1944) to basic VGA (640 x 480). Frame rate is freely adjustable for long or short exposures, and at full 5MB resolution the XS will capture 15 fps. Binning can be used to achieve frame rates as high as 30 fps. It connects via standard USB 2.0 and a mini-B socket, with power supply provided by the bus cable. The reinforced magnesium housing helps the camera withstand heavy use and demanding industrial environments.
