*DU series USB3.0 cameras is here.

*BG series Gig-E cameras is here.


Description

This BU series is an integrated-(one-body)-type camera that adopts all pixel data readout inter line CCD or CMOS.
For video output and camera control, the USB 3.0 interface standard is adopted for high transfer rate, and it is easy to integrate into industrial equipment.



Key Features

  • High frame rate

    high frame rate

  • USB3.0 interface
    Video output and camera control are performed via the USB3.0 interface. Data transfer is up to 5Gbps (Maximum) that enables to output uncompressed video data at high frame rate.

    USB3.0 interface

  • USB3 Vision®conformity

    This product is based on USB3 Vision Ver.1.0.
    USB3 Vision

    *USB3 Vision®is AIA(Automated Imaging Association) standard.

  • GenICam Ver2.3 conformity

    This product is based on GenICam Generic Interface for Cameras Ver.2.3.

    *GenICamTM is trade mark of EMVA(European Machine Vision association).

  • IIDC2 Digital Camera Control Specification Ver.1.0.0 conformity

    This product is based on IIDC2 Digital Camera Control Specification Ver.1.0.0.

    *IIDC2 is JIIA(Japan Industrial Imaging Association) standard.

  • e-CON Connector adoption

    The e-CON connector adoption enables to assemble the cable easily without usion special tools.

    *e-CON(Easy & Economy connector) is a sensor connector that is normalized by the manufacturer of the sensor, FA equipment and connector.

  • Scalable

    Selectable video output area. This mode achieves higher frame rate by reducing vertical output area. And reduces occupied data rate of USB bus by reducing horizontal output area.

    Scalable

  • Color processing (BU030C[F]/BU130C[F]/BU302MC[G/F]/BU505MC[G/F])
    Color models have built in color processing. There are RGB, YUV 4:2:2, YUV 4:1:1, Bayer and Mono output modes.
  • Color processing (BU238MC[F]/BU302MC[G/F]/BU505MC[G/F]/BU1203MC[F])
    Color models have built in color processing. Color processing features like white balance are available in Bayer output mode.
  • Global shutter (BU132M/BU205M/BU238M[C/CF]/BU302MG/BU406M[C/CF]/BU302MG/BU302MC[G/F]/BU505MG/BU505MC[G/F])
    As it employs a global electronic shutter similar to a CCD image sensor, clear images of even fast-moving object are obtainable with less blur.
  • Square grid arrangement
    Square grid arrangement of pixels, facilities computation for image processing.
  • Random Trigger Shutter
    The Random Trigger Shutter function provides images in any timing by input of an external trigger signal. Trigger control from PC is available as well.

About the change of GPIO output signal specifications of the BU series

As shown in the following information, GPIO output signal specifications of the BU series will be changed because of improving both noise resistance performance and convenience of use.

  1. Applicable products
    BU030, BU031, BU080, BU130

  2. Changes are follows;
    Changes are follows
    Before change After change
    Output channel 1 channel 2 channel
    Output signal TIMER0 ACTIVE, USER OUTPUT, EXPOSURE ACTIVE, FRAME ACTIVE, FRAME TRANSFER, FRAME TRIGGER WAIT
    Output level LVTTL 5V CMOS
    Polarity High active / Low active (factory setting : Low active)


  3. Serial No. of change applied.
    Change will be applied after the following manufacturing serial number.
    BU0300100131~
    BU0310100061~
    BU0800100041~
    BU1300100196~

  4. Others
    If you already used those products, please confirm carefully compatibility with the input circuit of your systems.
    There is not a problem in particular in case that you apply TTL buffer of +5V to your system.But if you apply LVTTL buffer to your system, please confirm the permissible voltage range of that.

Software (SDK)

"TeliCamSDK" software is available for BU/DU series which includes Viewer, SDK and sample codes.
By these SDKs you can use functions for Image Acquisitions and Camera setting. SDKs include C language API, and are available for not only C/C++ but also C#, .NET, Borland development environments.
Moreover, SDKs include high performance driver conforming to USB3 Vision.

"TeliCamSDK" is the newest SDK that integrates "TeliU3vSDK" with "TeliGevSDK" for BG series. "TeliCamSDK" includes high level API that reduces the code quantity particularly.
