The HDR sensor allows higher contrasts and a greater dynamic range (up to 120 dB). This is nearly 1,000 higher than the standard value of CCD sensors. Hence, the camera is particularly suited for a wide range of applications with large differences is brightness, eg. robot-assisted welding.
All uEye®ME models support binning/subsampling and AOI processes. Frame rates of up to 100 frames/s with a resolution of 640 x 480 are achievable, depending on models. The USB port and digital inputs/outputs are designed for industrial environments, eg. standard USB but also lockable Mini-B-connectors are available to offer secure and firm connectivity.
Apart from the board-level variants the camera is also available with a robust metal housing. Additional benefits include a comprehensive software package for Windows and Linux (32 and 64 Bit versions), which also a software development kit, demo programs and source codes in C++, C# and VB. A variety of interfaces are also available, including ActiveX, DirectShow/WDM as well as various machine vision programs. To make life easier, the SDK is identical for all uEye® camera series, so no more reprogramming when changing camera models!
