The camera specialists Basler have introduced their first models of the new cost-effective line scan camera range ‘Racer’. The cameras are very compact, easy to integrate, and deliver excellent image quality. Racer models are available with either a Gigabit Ethernet or a Camera Link interface. They use the latest line scan sensors based on highly sensitive CMOS technology and reach line rates of up to 48 kHz via Gigabit Ethernet and up to 80 kHz with the Camera Link interface.

Basler Racer cameras start with 2k and 4k models with 8k and 12k resolution models to follow. This new series will cover the whole spectrum of standard line scan cameras. Users from many different markets and application areas will find it much easier to choose a suitable camera for their needs.

The Camera Link models are equipped with  Power over Camera Link (PoCL) support so that data and power are transported over the same cable. This reduces both the overall costs for accessories and the system complexity. In addition, Mini Camera Link accessories are less expensive than regular Camera Link equipment which allows costs to drop even further, especially in larger systems.

Basler Racer cameras have an industrial housing meauring 56 mm x 62 mm. This compact design are an ideal fit for multi-camera designs especially where many line scan cameras are installed side-by-side. Read more about Racer
