A Quick Guide to The Imaging Source's Board Camera Families

37 Series

USB 3.1 single-board cameras: imaging for virtually every machine vision application

37 Series Board Cameras: USB 3.1 (type-C) Interface

As with our 37 series industrial cameras, the board-level versions feature Sony's STARVIS and Pregius sensors - the first sensors developed by Sony especially for industrial applications. These USB3-Vision and GeniCam-compliant board-level cameras deliver excellent image quality suitable for demanding machine vision tasks - making them a cost-effective solution for a range of applications such as intelligent traffic systems (ITS), optical inspection, medical engineering, logistics and more. The cameras' small footprint (with PCB dimensions as small as 30 x 30 x 15 mm) and reversible Type-C port allow for easy integration into space-constrained designs.

2 Series (One4All USB 2.0)

Single-board cameras ideal for cost-sensitive USB 2.0 and OEM applications

The Imaging Source's USB 2.0 board cameras feature ON Semiconductor CMOS sensors with resolutions ranging from 0.4 to 5MP and are the perfect choice for very cost-sensitive USB 2.0 machine vision projects. The small board-level form factor creates maximum flexibility for a wide range of space-limited applications. Equipped with a broad feature set (e.g. binning, windowing and high-speed readout), these cameras deliver a substantial reduction in image noise levels and provide exceptional image quality even in poor or fluctuating lighting conditions. Specific models are available with a variety of input, output, strobe and trigger options. Cameras from the 2 Series are also available in a housed version.

27 series

The 37 series predecessor

27 Series Board Cameras: USB 3.0 Interface

The Imaging Source 27 Series USB 3.0 board cameras feature reliable CMOS sensors from ON Semi with resolutions from 1.2 to 10.7 MP. These board-level cameras produce a high-quality video stream and high frame rates. Hardware features include digital I/O, strobe, binning and ROI. Cameras from the 27 Series are also available as housed cameras.

25 Series

GigE board camera series

These GigE board-level cameras offer small PCB dimensions (45 x 45 x 20 mm) and are perfect for a wide variety of industrial automation, quality assurance and surveillance applications requiring a GigE interface. In addition to unsurpassed data transmission and cable lengths of up to 100 meters offered by the GigE interface, performance-enhancing features available on the CMOS cameras such as binning, windowing and high-speed readout, dramatically reduce image noise levels.
