3D vision: Expanded field of view and more image details

3D camera series: Ensenso X models with 5 MP resolution camerasIDS expands Ensenso X series with 5 MP industrial cameras with IMX264 CMOS sensor from Sony

Camera manufacturer IDS now offers the modular Ensenso X 3D camera system with high-resolution 5 MP industrial cameras featuring the IMX264 CMOS Sony sensor. Compared to the currently available 1.3 MP sensors, they allow for an expanded field of view, higher resolution and lower noise levels. As always, the models of the 3D camera family are easy to set up and operate via the EnsensoSDK.


The Ensenso X 3D camera system consists of a powerful 100 watt projector, to which two industrial cameras can be mounted at variable distances. Applications range from factory automation (e. g. Bin Picking) to warehouse and logistics automation (e. g. pallet picking). The 3D camera system is now even more flexible and powerful thanks to the latest developments: both new 5 MP cameras and an updated software development kit are now available.

Thanks to the larger field of view of the 5 MP sensors, for example, the distance between the camera system and object can be reduced: In order to completely capture a packed Euro pallet with a volume of 120 x 80 x 100 cm, a distance of only 1.25 m instead of 1.5 m is required. The Z-accuracy improves from 0.43 mm to 0.2 mm. Further advantages of the new models include an increase of up to 35% in lateral resolution with more than 30% lower noise, so that details and depth information can be captured even more precisely.

With the new Ensenso X models users can choose between compact GigE uEye CP cameras and robust GigE uEye FA cameras with IP65/67 protection class - in just the same way that is possible with the 1.3 MP systems. The new cameras use the GigE Vision standard to communicate with the pattern projector. This eliminates the need for an additional installation of the IDS Software Suite.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
