New Series of Compact USB 3.0 Cameras

Press release date: Apr 18, 2013

The Imaging Source, an international manufacturer of industrial cameras for machine vision, has just announced a new series of compact USB 3.0 cameras with CCD and CMOS sensors.

The cameras ship in robust, industrial casing (29 x 29 x 47 mm) with a C/CS lens mount, trigger and digital I/0 inputs. The color, monochrome and Bayer models are available with resolutions from VGA to 5MP. They are ideally suited to machine vision applications in automation, traffic surveillance, quality assurance, medicine, logistics, microscopy and security.

The software support of the cameras leaves nothing to be desired: Both programmers and end-users immediately feel at home. Getting started with the cameras takes only a matter of minutes and integrating them into existing applications takes only a few lines of code. Drivers for LabView, HALCON, DirectX, Twain and WDM are included. All camera parameters and settings can be set via the shipped software. Furthermore, a number of automatic modes are available, which guarantee optimal image quality in varying light conditions.

The cameras ship with drivers for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8, the SDK IC Imaging Control 3.2 (.NET and C++ class library) and IC Capture. The latter is a powerful end-user application, which allows all camera parameters to be set, live video to be displayed, singular images and image sequences to be captured.

The Imaging Source is a multi-national enterprise with branches in the US, Taiwan and Germany. They have been manufacturing imaging products for scientific, industrial and medical applications for more than twenty years. The industrial cameras, converters and frame grabbers manufactured by The Imaging Source are highly robust and are designed to run for years with no maintenance. The Imaging Source products are typically deployed in factory automation, quality inspection, medical systems, microscopy systems, life science projects and as of 2007 amateur astronomy. All imaging products manufactured by The Imaging Source ship with Microsoft Windows drivers, an SDK and powerful software for device control, display and saving of images.
