Industrial camera with GigE interface and power over Ethernet
Powered over Ethernet, the GigE uEye CP industrial camera from IDS renders a separate power supply cable obsolete. At just 29 x 29 x 41 mm, the camera is one of the smallest currently existing models to feature PoE technology. It offers a fast Gigabit Ethernet interface that allows cable lengths of up to 300 ft. With its robust magnesium housing, screw-on connectors, and optically isolated in- and outputs, it is especially designed for use in industrial environments.
For users of analog cameras in particular the new model range offers a powerful alternative. CP stands for ‘Compact’ and ‘Power over Ethernet’. The GigE uEye CP combines the simplicity of USB with the performance of GigE. It is connected with just one cable and offers real plug-and-play ease of use.
The series is comprised of three models featuring CMOS sensors covering a wide range of applications. At 5 megapixels, the UI-5480CP offers the highest resolution. The UI-5220CP is equipped with a WVGA chip capable of 100 frames per second; as a third version, the UI-5240CP has a new global shutter sensor with 1.3 megapixels and 50 frames per second. It is particularly sensitive, and equally suited to fast inspection tasks and microscopy. The other technical specifications are identical to the familiar GigE uEye SE series.
Designed especially for industrial applications, its robust magnesium housing with screw-on connectors, optically decoupled in- and outputs, and an additional galvanically isolated supply connection for a voltage of 12-24 V make this the perfect camera for the job.
