Basler ACA2500-14GC GigE Vision Color Area Scan Camera
→ Gigabit Ethernet interface with PoE
→ Camera Link interface for high throughput with PoCL
→ VGA to 5 megapixels with selected high quality
→ CCD and CMOS sensors
For the first time, a Basler camera family covers the entire range from cost sensitivity to ultra-fast high performance in a very small 42 x 29 x 29 mm housing. The Basler ace series includes CCD and CMOS camera models featuring the most popular resolutions from VGA to 5 megapixels with a fast throughput of up to 340 fps in monochrome and color. The Basler ACA2500 14GC cameras have a price-driven design that maintains our quality commitment by leveraging the technical knowledge we gained from our scout and pilot cameras and from our earlier A series cameras.
With the ace series, you can choose from the two most popular data interfaces in the vision market: the field-proven Camera Link interface with the widest bandwidth or the new de facto standard of GigE Vision, which is based on standard Ethernet technology. Both variants of the Basler ace family offer the option of providing camera power and data via a single cable or providing camera power through a separate connector. Both variants also offer a separate input/output port for triggering or flash control. And like all Basler cameras, the ace family comes with a long list of firmware features.
The ace series designed for industrial, medical, and traffic applications, you can enjoy a new class of digital cameras that will help you to be even more successful at what you do. The entry price level for the new ace Camera Link models opens up new fields for gigapixel applications, such as AOI inspection or other throughput orientated applications. A Camera Link camera of this size has never before provided such performance.
The ACA250014GC cameras offer you clear advantages compared to classic Camera Link cameras with respect to size, weight, power consumption, temperature, and pixel output per second. This cost effectiveness opens up a new era of pricing in a camera class that used to be described as the "high end segment".
Because the Basler ace uses the same 29 x 29 mm footprint that has been standard on analog cameras for many years, replacement of analog cameras is very easy. Some existing Camera Link cameras and IEEE 1394a or 1394b cameras with this same footprint can also be easily replaced. Because we have applied the same bottom mounting options to the Basler ace as seen on most standard analog cameras.
Basler has made mechanical replacement extremely simple. The use of a single cable to apply camera power and to transfer data between the Basler ace and a PC makes using the ACA2500-14GC cameras even more convenient. The trigger speed and latency have been greatly improved, making integration easy, even in time-critical applications.
The Basler ace camera line covers the entire
spectrum including cost sensitivity, ultra-fast speeds
and high tech in a very small housing. The camera's
price-driven design underpins our quality commitment
by applying the technical knowledge we've acquired
from former camera designs. High quality and
performance levels combined with a low starting
list price make Basler ace cameras
one of the world's best selling cameras with
thousands of satisfied customers.
With the ace series, you can choose from the most
popular data interfaces in the vision market: the
popular Gigabit Ethernet interface with 100-meter
cable length, the new USB 3.0 interface with plug
and play capability, and the field-proven Camera
Link interface with wide bandwidth. All Basler ace
cameras come with an option to provide camera
power and data via a single cable. They also offer
separate input/output ports for triggering or flash
control. And like all Basler cameras, the ace family
comes with a long list of firmware features.
Analog cameras are very easy to replace because
the Basler ace offers the same 29 x 29 mm footprint
and the same bottom mounting options that have
been standard on analog cameras for many years.
Some existing Camera Link, FireWire, and USB 2.0
cameras with the same 29 x 29 mm footprint can
also be replaced. The Basler ace matches most of
these cameras in terms of mechanics, and often beats
them on price and ease of use.
Want to do things better? Then get yourself one
of these innovative digital cameras that are
specifically targeted at industrial, medical, and
traffic applications and profit from a convincing
price/performance ratio to boot. This ace of
cameras is available with several resolutions and
speeds, and with sensors from all leading
manufacturers so you can easily find the right ace
camera model for your application. Basler ace is all
