Pre-announcement: New uEye+ XCP and XLE cameras with 8.46 MP Sony sensor

Low-cost rolling shutter sensor with 4K resolution soon to join uEye XCP / XLE camera portfolio

With the practical 8.46 MP rolling shutter sensor IMX415 from Sony, we will soon be offering you an additional camera variant in the uEye+ product range of the XCP / XLE family. This is the highest resolution sensor in the range to date. At the same time, the 2x2 binning feature gives you the option of scaling down the amount of data to be transmitted by a factor of four, thereby increasing both the light sensitivity and the frame rate.

Currently, the uEye XCP and XLE series offer a choice between the 2.3 MP AR0234 global shutter sensor and the 5 MP AR0521 rolling shutter sensor from Onsemi. The 8.46 MP sensor from the Sony Starvis range will be available in Q1/2022. With a pixel size of 1.45 µm and 4K resolution (3864 x 2176 px), it is particularly suitable for visualisation tasks. The USB3 cameras are available in both families as color and monochrome versions.

The camera family is aimed at customers who prefer budget-friendly, extremely compact and lightweight camera models with industrial quality instead of extraordinary camera features. They are Vision Standard compatible (U3V / GenICam), measure only 29 x 29 x 17 mm and have a completely closed zinc die-cast housing with a screwable USB Micro-B connector. In addition, the cameras produce very little heat. This enables the use in temperature-sensitive applications.

uEye XLE models are also designed for price-sensitive applications and score with different housing variants and compact dimensions. This makes them particularly easy to integrate into image processing systems.
