The Basler a2A2590-22gcPRO GigE camera with the Sony IMX334ROI CMOS sensor delivers 22 frames per second at 5 MP Resolution.
The Basler ace 2 Pro series features all the benefits of the ace 2 Basic series plus unique Beyond features and PGI feature set:
- Same standard small housing with proven 29 mm x 29 mm footprint
- Compression Beyond for higher bandwidth on GigE using lossless compression
- Pixel Beyond for uncomplicated sensor redesign through individual adjustment of pixel size and sensor characteristics
- Popular PGI feature set from Basler included
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 Pro version, which adds:
> Compression Beyond can reduce required bandwidth and/or increase the frame rate over GigE, using either lossless or lossy compression.
> Pixel Beyond for uncomplicated “virtual” adjustment of sensor pixel size and characteristics.
> PGI features work directly inside the camera to deliver the best image quality without reducing frame rate or increasing computer load.
Note that Compression Beyond requires Pylon (Viewer, API, or GenTL Producer) to decompress images. The compression ratio will vary with camera configuration and image content.
