MUNSTER, GERMANY, October 28, 2011 – Based on more than 20 years’ experience building ultra-compact cameras XIMEA sets new benchmarks for performance and size with the xiQ series of USB 3.0 industrial machine vision camera compatible with upcoming USB3 Vision standard. The xiQ series features a USB 3.0 SuperSpeed data interface capable of 5Gbit/s and throughput of up to 400 Mpix/s.The xiQ series come with the newest CMOS sensors, Global Shutters and improved quantum efficiency in the visible and NIR spectral ranges. Other highlights of xiQ series include: resolution from VGA to 4Mpix, frame rates of up to 600fps, HDR model with dynamic range of 100 dB, opto-isolated trigger input and lighting synchronisation output, on-board non-volatile memory for user settings and custom data. Line of xiQ cameras has world smallest dimensions and volume of any USB 3.0 C/CS mount cameras with 26.4 x 26.4 x 21.2mm and 26g weight. Very low power consumption between 1W to 1.8W according to model.
The xiQ series of USB 3.0 cameras all offer high-quality sensors with global shutter for industrial applications and will be available in the following configurations:
All XIMEA scientific, industrial and PC cameras are plug-and-play compatible with most of the major image processing libraries on the market, including Cognex’s VisionPro, Matrox’s MIL, National Instruments LabView, MVTec’s Halcon and many more. See the list of supported libraries.
