What are the benefits of using a USB interface camera?

USB cameras offer integration with minimal effort and, in some cases, can offer UVC-compliance, which enables plug-and-play. The bandwidth of USB can achieve 5Gbps (depending on whether you are using USB 2.0 or USB 3.0) and can reach a range of up to 7 metres with passive cables. However, you can use an active optic cable to facilitate a longer cable distance of up to 100m, which may require an external power source (Active optic cables, in most cases, are at a higher price point and may not provide power to the end device).

What are the CU series cameras?

The CU series is a range of GigE and USB 3.0 industrial cameras manufactured by HIKROBOT. They have been meticulously crafted with a low power-consuming platform and unwavering performance. This results in a versatile industrial camera product that not only meets the demands for stability but also provides essential functions. By doing so, it greatly simplifies the process of acquiring vision applications for users. Furthermore, these cameras have built-in image processing with integrated ISP algorithms, such as wide dynamic range, noise reduction, and sharpness, allowing for flexible adjustments based on the user's specific situations. This helps to minimize external disruptions, enhance image stability, and lessen the workload on the back-end algorithm.
