uEye FA camera family with new sensors – 12 and 20 MP Sony STARVIS and 5 MP polarization sensor

July 6, 2021

Strong and sturdy: uEye FA industrial cameras are particularly robust and therefore ideally suited for demanding environmental conditions, for example in factory automation. Starting in August, IDS will offer three new sensors in the family: The 12 MP (IMX226) and 20.44 MP (IMX183) Sony sensors are true high-performers with high resolution and low noise. For special requirements, the company will also integrate the 5 MP polarization sensor IMX250MZR.

Housing of the uEye FA models, lens tubes and the screwable connectors (8-pin M12 Ethernet connector with X-coding and 8-pin Binder connector) meet the requirements of protection class IP65/67. The GigE cameras can be operated either with 12-24 V or alternatively as a PoE setup (Power-over-Ethernet). PoE enables practical single-cable operation up to a maximum length of 100 m. The cameras are typically used for machine vision tasks in industrial plants and quality assurance. Software support is provided, for example, by the modern IDS peak SDK.

Both the 12 MP rolling shutter sensor IMX226 (4000 x 3000 px) and the 20.44 MP rolling shutter sensor IMX183 (5536 x 3692 px) are part of the Sony STARVIS series. Thanks to BSI technology ("back-side illumination") they are characterized by exceptional light sensitivity and low noise. The 5 MP polarization sensor IMX250MZR also enables interesting application scenarios. It shows its strengths especially in low contrast or reflective light and helps to detect scratches on surfaces or the stress distribution within transparent objects. This makes details visible that remain hidden from other sensors.
