e-con Systems Launches 2MP Monochrome Global Shutter USB Camera

e-con Systems' new See3CAM_20CUG, 2MP, 3.0 ?m global shutter USB 3.1 Gen 1 SuperSpeed Camera with NIR sensitivity.

e-con Systems announced the launch of See3CAM_20CUG, 2 MP Monochrome global shutter USB 3.1 Gen1 superspeed Camera. It is based on OmniVision's OV2311 image sensor with 3 µm x 3 µm pixel with OmniPixel3-GS technology. It has an S-mount (M12) lens holder which allows customers to choose and use the lens according to their requirement. It is a Plug-and-Play camera (UVC compliant) for Windows and Linux.

According to the company, See3CAM_20CUG can capture images at a high frame rate (HFR) of 2MP at 60fps, VGA at 180fps, and QVGA at 280fps, which helps to minimize the distracting effects while capturing fast moving objects and produce much smoother images. The High Near-Infrared Capabilities helps to produce ideal image quality beyond visible light region. Both high frame rate and high NIR make it suitable for accurate eye tracking applications and smartly powering driver monitoring systems.

e-con Systems provides sample Windows applications, e-CAMView, Linux application, and QtCAM that uses the standard UVC protocol to access the camera controls. The e-CAMView, a DirectShow based image viewer application from e-con Systems, enables controls such as Gain, Exposure, Saturation, Brightness, Contrast, and other controls. QtCAM, Open source Linux camera software application, enables capturing and viewing video from devices supported by Linux UVC driver and also works with any V4L2 compatible device

The See3CAM_20CUG is currently available for evaluation.
