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 ACA640 120GM 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 ACA640120GM 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.
