Ingenious mini camera with 5 MP and autofocus

Whether in a hand-held scanner, on a robot arm or in a photo booth: the tiny uEye XS makes sure that objects are always perfectly in focus. The tiny camera fits into any application. Discover now what the versatile 5 MP autofocus camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems is capable of! The uEye XS starter set is ideal for testing the camera. In addition to the compact USB2 camera, it includes a cable, a tripod adapter and a tripod. If the distance between the lens and the object is constantly changing, users benefit from industrial cameras with automatic focus. They eliminate the need for manual refocusing and ensure that objects or labels are always perfectly visible. However, there are more decisive factors for a good picture quality, such as natural colour reproduction and harmonious contrast. IDS has therefore equipped the uEye XS with many other practical automatic features familiar from consumer technology. This includes white balance, exposure and gain. As a result, it delivers the best possible result in every situation. If you want to fine-tune even more precisely, you can make the appropriate settings in the SDK (IDS Software Suite). Thanks to its small size and the proven USB2 interface, the uEye XS camera is suitable as a component in embedded vision systems. It is used, for example, in medical or security applications, in transport and logistics or in kiosk systems.
