WOBURN, MA -- IDS GmbH, a global leader in machine vision technology,  has introduced the new uEye™ UI-5490HE, the company's first GigE camera with an optional 90° angled housing for maximum flexibility in tight spaces.
 First 10MP GigE Machine Vision Camera Available in 90° Mounting Angle
Capable of acquiring ten-megapixel images of 3840 x 2784 pixels with 1.67 µm, square pixels at 8 fps, the UI-5490HE can be integrated into systems for semiconductor inspection, manufacturing quality control, food and beverage inspection, microscopy and medical imaging. Image data from its Aptina® 1/2-inch CMOS sensor is output with up to 12 bit depth per channel, while an internal field-programmable gate array (FPGA) with 64 MB image memory ensures fast and reliable data transfer.  Other features include binning and area of interest which allow 37 FPS at 1920x1080 resolution.
With GigE technology, higher bandwidth and cable lengths up to 100 m can be achieved with the GigE uEye HE family.  
Besides the lockable GigE port, the UI-5490HE features 4 digital I/O's and an RS232 interface that can be used to control external devices.  Users can visit the IDS site to download a comprehensive software package consisting of SDKs, interfaces and tools and drivers.  To make integration as easy as possible and allow use of familiar development environments, IDS supports the following programming languages: C, C++, C#, Microsoft .NET and Visual Basic.
