Network-powered Gigabit-Ethernet camera in small footprint

April 11, 2013 // By Julien Happich
IDS' ultra-compact GigE industrial cameras now come with an Ethernet cable power supply. The range includes various options with CMOS or CCD sensors, and with resolutions from WVGA to 10 megapixels - all "powered-over-Ethernet".

The cameras are designed for demanding industrial applications, featuring screw-on, dust proof and splash water proof M12 circular connectors, along with optically decoupled digital inputs and outputs.

The optional lens barrels and plug covers even enable them to meet the requirements for protection classes IP65 and IP67. The cameras' features also include two general purpose I/Os, which are particularly recommended for applications in foundries, automotive production and automation engineering. Because the GigE "powered over Ethernet" models manage with only one cable for data transmission and power supply - although a 12-24V DC input is also available - they can be integrated into a wide range of applications.
