This camera is built on the CMOSIS CMV2000 progressive scan sensor having 2048 x 1088 pixel resolution. Our customers love it! Its 2:1 aspect ratio is ideal for imaging text and long narrow parts. The camera offers an amazing 60% quantum efficiency. Delivering up to 50 frames per second at full resolution (Mono8, Bayer GR8) you can have both speed and resolution. Or, configured for YUV4:2:2, it delivers 28 fps.

We also have customers using this camera for pro video production. It can be configured for 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution. Assuming one camera on the Gigabit Ethernet network, frame rates of 30 fps (Y'CbCr, YUV4:2:2) and 50 fps (Bayer GR8) can be achieved.

For even higher frame rates, please see the similar CABR520, which has a CameraLink interface.

Using a Power over Ethernet (“PoE”) configuration, a single cable may be used to apply camera power and to transfer data between this camera and a PC, keeping cable runs to a minimum. An auxiliary connector is provided for terminating the input and output signal – there is one of each. The input may be configured to trigger image acquisition, reset the frame counter, or reset the software trigger count. The output may be configured to indicate acquisition trigger wait, exposure active, flash window, or timer active. Or the output may be controlled via a PC. The auxiliary connector may be used to power the camera if PoE is not available.

The Basler ace provides a full set of features to address a wide range of applications. Pixel data can be output in 8 or 12 bit depth. You may adjust the camera’s black level, gain, area of interest, input debounce, and trigger delay. It features automatic exposure control, pixel binning, horizontal image mirroring, event reporting, sending of test images, and a programmable lookup table. There are also “chunk” features that include a frame counter, time stamp, trigger input counter, and CRC checksum calculator. Note that not all features may be available when using third-party software.

Because this camera is GigE Vision and GenICam complaint, there are many third party software applications and API’s that are compatible. Basler offers their royalty-free Pylon SDK for 32 and 64 bit Windows and Linux platforms.

Maximum frame rate depends on output bit depth and packing. This camera's sensor measures 12.75 mm diagonal. If you use the full sensor, some vignetting may be visible when combined with a 2/3 size (11 mm) lens. We recommend our LSKA22_ lenses for most installations.
