GigE Vision Monochrome Area Scan Camera

The Basler ACA130060GM 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 ACA1300 60GM 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 you need.

Basler ace: one camera for all your needs

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. These 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.

It has never been easier or less expensive to get better at what you do

A design targeted 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. These ace 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".

Replacement with a smile

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 these cameras even more convenient. The trigger speed and latency have been greatly improved, making integration easy, even in time-critical applications.

The height of GigE Vision perfection

The Basler ace series benefits from our extensive experience designing and building GigE Vision cameras. As the pioneering GigE company, Basler has always kept our GigE Vision interface technology a step ahead of the competition. With the Basler ace, you get our bundled experience in GigE Vision, which lets you take the full advantage of our leading edge technology while benefiting from GigE Vision ’s newest achievements including:

 More than 100 megabytes of data per second
Up to 100 meter cable lengths for maximum flexibility
Power over Ethernet (PoE) support
 The field-proven Basler pylon driver package with both filter and performance drivers

No bandwidth limits with Camera Link

The Basler ace is now also available with a standard Camera Link interface. Camera Link is a direct, single connection between the camera and a PC and offers the widest bandwidth of all common data interfaces. This is the best way for your application to exploit the full performance of the latest CMOS sensors from CMOSIS with no bandwidth compromises. These Basler ace models benefit from our long history and experience with high end area scan and line scan cameras and offer you:

  • Exposure Control Via external trigger or programmable via the camera API
  • Ground-breaking price on all interfaces
  • Gigabit Ethernet interface with PoE
  • Camera Link interface with PoCL
  • Support for standard vision interfaces GigE Vision, USB3 Vision, and Camera Link
