Compact, cost-effective and with exceptional image quality in low ambient light: IDS is the first industrial camera manufacturer to offer the 2 MP sensor IMX662 in both color and monochrome versions. The sensors belonging to Sony's Starvis 2 series are designed for maximum light sensitivity. They are now available either as compact uEye+ XCP models or as board-level versions in the uEye+ XLS series.

Both camera families are characterized by their compact design and are therefore suitable for embedded applications, for example. While uEye+ XCP models have a completely closed housing measuring 29 mm x 29 mm x 17 mm with a C-mount lens holder, the uEye+ XLS models measuring just 29 mm x 29 mm x 7 mm are available as board-level cameras with or without a C/CS- or S-mount lens holder.

In addition to the special, highly sensitive pixel technology, customers benefit from another distinctive characteristic, as Jürgen Hejna, product manager uEye at IDS, explained: "We offer this rolling shutter sensor with anti-reflection coating, which further improves the image quality." Thanks to this feature, disruptive reflections — known as lens flare — are reduced or completely avoided within the camera.


In addition, the new models offer excellent value for money, as Jürgen Hejna explained: "Customers can get the new models for well under 200 euros list price." The company plans to make the entire range of Sony Starvis 2 sensors available in different camera families in the future. This will provide customers with the greatest possible flexibility when selecting these light-sensitive sensors.
