Basler dart – a Flexible and Ultra Compact Camera Hit
The Basler dart camera line has been developed to meet the requirements of a broad variety of vision applications. With its one-board design that comes with a USB 3.0 interface, the dart camera series combines both latest technology and a cost-driven design in a very small format. The benefits of this camera series showcase the technical expertise we have accumulated over 25 years in the vision industry. A distinctive combination of high quality and cost-effectiveness in development and product design allows us to offer you a surprisingly low starting list price of € 99.
With the dart series, you can choose from your ideal mix of board level type cameras:
- Bare board model without any additional lens mount, to meet high demands in extremely costdriven system designs
- M12 / S-mount front for highest flexibility, using a complete camera in very space-limited environments, such as in medical and retail applications
- CS-mount front, popular for a variety of vision applications, either for typical machine vision in the field of factory automation, or solutions to
serve the ITS (Intelligent Traffic System) business
All dart cameras come with the emerging USB 3.0 interface, providing camera data and power over only one cable. They also offer separate input/ output ports for trigger or flash control and a broad set of features serving a wide range of vision applications in different industries.
Following today’s standards, the Basler dart offers the most popular camera footprint of 29 mm × 29 mm for its S- and CS-mount models. Without
a lens mount, the dart undercuts these impressive dimensions again, setting a new standard in single board cameras with a footprint of only
27 mm × 27 mm. Its low power consumption reduces heat dissipation issues even at this smallest dimension. Ready to make the change? Get the digital board level camera that – beyond industrial applications – is specifically targeting retail, medical and traffic applications. Achieve improved performance at lower cost. This innovative advance in digital camera technology is available in a variety of models with different lens mounts and resolutions, and with sensors from leading manufacturers.
If you are looking for a simple but sophisticated high-quality camera, it has never been easier to find the right camera for you and your application. The dart will hit your target!

Basler pylon Camera Software Suite
The architecture of the pylon Camera Software Suite is based on GenICam Technology, which offers you easy access to the newest camera models and the latest features. Changes to an existing camera device in yourm application essentially become a plug-and-play process.
An easy-to-use set of tools lets you configure the camera’s interface. Use the pylon Viewer to set camera parameters, to capture and display images, and to evaluate the camera.
The pylon USB3 Vision Driver fully supports the USB3 Vision standard. It allows Basler USB 3.0 cameras to use the full speed and bandwidth of USB 3.0 for image transmission while reducing resource load and using off-the-shelf hardware components.
The pylon GigE Vision Performance Driver quickly separates incoming packets carrying image data from other traffic on the network and makes the data available for use by your vision application while requiring the lowest CPU resources. This driver can only be used with network cards that include specific Intel chipsets. The pylon GigE Vision Filter Driver supports all kinds of hardware, common GigE network cards, and GigE ports on your motherboard as well.
The pylon IEEE 1394b Driver gives you access to a well-established interface technology, and the pylon Camera Link Configuration Driver offers comfortable access to all camera parameters of Basler’s latest Camera Link families ace, aviator, and racer.
The pylon Camera Software Suite also contains a powerful SDK that supports any type of application development. The pylon package contains the following main modules. Each one can be individually selected/ unselected during the installation process, preventing the installation of unneeded modules on your system:
- USB3 Vision Driver
- GigE Vision Filter Driver
- GigE Vision Performance Driver
- IEEE 1394 Driver
- Camera Link Serial Communication Driver
- pylon Viewer
- SDK for all cameras; C, C++, .NET (C#, VB.NET, …), and VB6 (the ‘pylon for Linux’ version only supports
the GigE and USB 3.0 interface via a C++ API)
