Camera Basler Ace 2 a2A2590-22gmBAS 2592 x 1944 Monochrome CMOS GigE
The Basler Ace 2 a2A2590-22gmBAS GigE Vision camera offers great value. This is the “Basic” model. Despite the name, it offers all the capabilities many installations demand.
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 compliant, there are many third party software applications and API’s that are compatible. Basler offers their royalty-free Pylon SDK with support for most operating systems.
The Basler ace 2 is available in “Basic” and “Pro” versions. Both feature a status LED on the back, a removable IR cut filter, and robust M8 I/O connector. This is the Basic version.
