The PYTHON sensors from ON Semiconductor are currently among the most powerful sensors for the machine vision industry. They combine excellent image quality with high speeds and are therefore highly suitable for the challenging tasks of many machine vision applications. The successful Basler ace series includes models using the PYTHON sensors.
Sensor alone does not necessarily give a good image. Basler recently took their ace USB 3.0 camera (acA1300-200um) and two competitor USB 3.0 cameras, all equipped with the same PYTHON 1300 sensor from ON Semiconductor and compare the image quality.
