The industrial cameras of the USB-CAM series can be connected to any PC with a USB interface in just a few steps. A complex installation of additional hardware is not necessary. Power supply and data transfer take place via just one cable.

Thanks to the extremely compact metal housing with a size of only 36 x 36 x 25 (mm), the USB-CAMs can be installed in almost any installation location. It is fastened using four M3 threads or a supplied 1/4 "or M6 flange. The fastening holes are located on all four sides of the camera, so that even difficult installation situations can be mastered.


The cameras have a global shutter so that even fast moving objects can be displayed without distortion.
The high frame rate of 60 fps can be increased to up to 150 fps by reducing the readout area (ROI).

The cameras can be operated under Microsoft Windows 10 and Linux. To use the cameras under Linux, please order using the "-UVC" option (example: "AK087-UVC").

As an option, the USB cameras are also available with an external trigger input with which the recording time can be precisely controlled.
