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 38U series cameras?

The 38U series industrial cameras offer impressive image quality and high resolution, reaching up to 24.5 MP. These cameras are specifically designed to meet the requirements of demanding manufacturing and factory automation applications. By leveraging USB 3.1’s superior data transfer rates, the 38U Series cameras ensure efficient and reliable performance. Moreover, these cameras come equipped with advanced features such as external trigger control, advanced readout functions, and image and colour processing capabilities, further enhancing their functionality and versatility.
