The eight new ace U models from camera manufacturer Basler feature resolutions of 6 and 12 megapixels and have now moved into series production. They are equipped with the IMX178 and IMX226 sensors from Sony’s STARVIS line and deliver up to 59 frames per second.

The eight new models are the first Basler cameras to feature innovative back-illuminated rolling shutter CMOS sensors. They stand out with their extremely high sensitivity at small pixel sizes of 2.4 µm (IMX178) or 1.85 µm (IMX226). A special aspect of these sensors is the very low dark noise of only three electrons, combined with a quantum efficiency of over 80%. With these particularly light-sensitive sensors, the eight new ace U cameras deliver high image quality even in low light conditions. They also offer an excellent price/performance ratio. This makes the new ace U cameras particularly suitable for applications in the area of manual light or fluorescence microscopy as well as in the electronics industry for less complex assembly systems.

All new ace U 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 ace U color models also include the PGI feature set, the unique combination of 5x5 debayering, color-anti-aliasing, denoising and improved sharpness.

(POC-320 AND POC-330)

Experience the Giant Leap in Performance of the
Intel® Apollo Lake Pentium® Platform!

What makes the POC-300 series stand out?

The POC-300 series features the latest Intel® Apollo Lake Pentium® N4200 and Atom™ E3950 quad-core processor which offers a faster more powerful performance than previous generations.

Its ingeniously mechanical design combines a DIN-RAIL mounting chassis with front-access I/O in an ultra-compact enclosure and is equipped with I/O features such as GbE, USB 3.0/2.0, COM ports and mSATA storage in a space saving footprint that measures approximately 2.25 x 6 x 4.5 in or 5.6 x 15 x 11 cm.

The POC-300 series also features Neousys' MezIO™ interface for easy function expansion via versatile MezIO™ modules such as ignition control/management, COM ports and digital input/output (DIO).

With our proven fan-less design, the POC-300 series withstands harsh environments making it a compelling fan-less controller with a wide operating temperature range of -13°F to 158°F or -25°C to 70°C making it beneficial for various industrial applications.

The POC-320 model comes with 1 GbE and 2 PoE+/GbE ports and the POC-330 supports 3 GbE ports to power cameras for vision related applications such as in-vehicle machine vision or surveillance. Both models are available for order now!

Basler ace: Now with Sony's IMX and ON Semiconductor's PYTHON Sensors

The Basler ace family is continuing to grow: Equipped with the latest PYTHON sensors from ON Semiconductor and Sony's IMX174, IMX249, IMX250, IMX264, IMX252 and IMX265 sensors from the pregius series, the new ace models leave nothing to be desired. In particular, the combination of small design and large, high-performance CMOS sensors with the most modern global shutter technology and resolutions of VGA to 5 megapixels makes the new ace models unbeatable.

The Basler ace models with the Sony IMX sensors at a glance:
- Global shutter technology
- Resolution: 2.3, 3 and 5 megapixels
- Frame rates of up to 50 (GigE) or 164 frames (USB 3.0) per second
- High quantum efficiency of over 70%
- Large dynamic range (> 70 db)
- Extremely low noise ratio
- High sensitivity
- Extraordinarily high image quality even in the most difficult light conditions, comparable to CCD sensors
- Suitable for very challenging applications (e.g. microscopy, medical technology, transport technology)
