The compact Basler dart camera with a standard-compliant USB 3.0 interface is ideal for use with single-board computers. USB 3.0 is known for fast data transfer, but the camera module can also be connected to USB 2 systems. Thus, the Basler dart camera offers advantages such as easy integration, convenient plug and play functionality, and secure data transfer at bandwidths of up to 350 MB/s for maximum utilization of the sensor’s performance. Camera-internal image preprocessing and image optimization (PGI) deliver high-quality images that do not require any further software processing. The proven and user-friendly pylon Camera Software Suite also supports Basler dart cameras with a USB 3.0 interface and is available for Linux on x86 or ARM-based systems. It offers a programming interface for creating user-specific applications.
