Basler Vision Technologies has launched a new series of industrial Gigabit Ethernet cameras, the Basler ace series, designed to meet the cost demands of analog camera users while offering all of the technological advantages of a digital camera. This goal has been achieved by a strictly cost-driven product design that leverages Basler’s market leading position in GigE based cameras while maintaining Basler’s high quality standards. And all of this is topped by entry-level pricing of 299.
The cameras provide an extremely small 29 x 29 mm footprint, Power over Ethernet, high-performance features, and very easy integration on both the hardware and software sides. The ace series will initially consist of four camera models in monochrome and color with resolutions from VGA to two megapixels and featuring a C-mount adapter. All cameras are equipped with a CCD sensor.
The first ace models will be available in March 2010.
