Basler launch a further 20 new high-resolution models to its ace camera series. The models feature sensors from Sony’s Pregius and STARVIS lines with the latest global and rolling shutter technology.

Twelve of the 20 new cameras are equipped with the IMX253, IMX255, IMX267 and IMX304 sensors from Sony’s Pregius line. These twelve models will now form the ace L product line. They offer resolutions of 9 and 12 megapixels and frame rates of up to 40 fps. These cameras stand out in particular due to the brilliant Pregius image quality at high resolutions and a pixel size of 3.45 µm. State-of-the-art global shutter technology ensures distortion-free images, even at high speeds. These qualities make the twelve new ace models well-suited especially for applications in highly automated 3D inspection systems or in traffic monitoring, for example in tolling.

In addition to these twelve cameras, Basler also introduces eight new ace models with the IMX178 and IMX226 sensors from Sony’s STARVIS line. These models join the new ace U product line. Equipped with the latest rolling shutter technology and featuring high resolutions of 6 and 12 megapixels with up to 59 frames per second, they demonstrate their full potential especially in microscopy applications and less complex automation tasks in the electronics industry. The innovative BI (back-illuminated) sensor technology provides outstanding sensitivity at a small pixel size of 2.4 µm (IMX178) or 1.85 µm (IMX226). With these particularly light-sensitive sensors, the eight new ace cameras offer excellent image quality even in low light conditions.

All 20 models are available with the proven GigE or USB 3.0 interface and conform to GigE Vision 2.0 or the USB3 Vision standard. The GigE models excel with high-performance GigE Vision 2.0 features such as PTP. The ten colour models also include the PGI feature set, the unique combination of 5×5 debayering, colour-anti-aliasing, denoising and improved sharpness. Basler’s pylon Camera Software Suite also ensures a fast and simple integration of the ace cameras. All 20 models are available as design-in-samples.
