The ECO Series:
Reliable performance

An ECO fits into any type of application. The ECO series impresses with its minimal footprint. And that even without compromising on performance.

One of the worlds smallest GigE vision cameras

Unparalleled flexibility with an excellent price-performance ratio: This is how one best would describe the ECO series. The cameras use well-known Sony CCD sensors and were specifically developed to provide the highest frame rates paired with excellent signal-to-noise ratio. The eco² feature Kodak multitap sensors with outstanding speed and and uniformity. Supporting GigE Vision and GenICam standards, the ECO series opens up new possibilities for integrating into your specific applications.

All versions of the ECO series have the following features:

  • Progressive Scan CCD sensors
  • Monochrome and color (Bayer pattern, auto white balance)
  • Various trigger (int./ext./free running) and exposure modes
  • Adjustable gain, auto gain and auto exposure
  • Various binning modes
  • Area of interest (AOI)
  • Gigabit Ethernet interface with max. 120 MB/s datarate
  • GigE-Vision and GenICam standard compliant
  • 8/12 Bit video data stream (14 Bit ADC)
  • 64 MB frame buffer inside
  • Industrial I/O-Concept: 2 x In (TTL-24 V), RS-422, RS-232, Safe Trigger, programmable logic, sequencer, 2 x Out (24 V, 0,3 A)
  • CS/C-Mount lens interface
  • Operating temperature -10°C (non-condensing) to +45°C
  • Wide range Power conditions: 10 – 25 V DC
  • SDK for Windows and Linux available
  • Sequence-Shutter and enhanced Strobe-Functionality
  • 4 x Output (24 V, 0,3 A), e.g. for strobing LEDs
  • Prepared for Lens- and Pan/Tilt unit control

Various Versions for various Requirements

Whether you want to operate the ECO directly from your system, leveraging the precise I/O-timing of the rugged ECO I/O-concept or if you want to use the benefits of the "Power over Ethernet" technology (PoE version) that greatly simplifies cabling – the ECO is the efficient answer to your requirements. The wide range of variants ensures easy integration into new and existing image processing systems. Thanks to its advanced electronic design the ECO series delivers very high frame rates at exceptionally low noise. The high quality of the analogue CCD video signal chain using Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) leads to a significant reduction in noise. The use of intelligent logic also offers a variety of different modes of exposure timing and trigger control settings. Using one of the cameras of the ECO family in your quality control solution provides maximum performance in early detection of defective products, thereby reducing production costs and increasing profits.
