The Basler a2A1920-160umPRO USB 3.0 monochrome camera with the Sony IMX392 CMOS sensor delivers 160 frames per second at 2.3 MP Resolution.

 The a2A1920-160umPRO has all the proven Basler reliability with extensive computer vision feature set for standard machine vision applications, plus new, unique Beyond features from Basler for maximum performance, including Compression Beyond and Pixel Beyond. The a2A1920-160umPRO  is a monochrome USB3.0, Pro ace2 camera.

Compression Beyond compresses image data directly in the camera's FPGA, in real time and without sacrificing image quality. As a result, more bandwidth is available, which in turn ensures considerably higher frame rates, especially with GigE - up to two to three times the rate, depending on the image content.

Pixel Beyond uses an interpolation method developed by Basler to change the pixel size. Similar to conventional binning functions, this allows the adjustment of various sensor characteristics.
