The USB 2 uEye LE series is a versatile and reasonably-priced range of cameras for use in industrial and non-industrial projects, which nonetheless ticks all the boxes in terms of sensor technology and versatility. You can choose from next generation CMOS sensors from well-known European manufacturers in resolutions ranging from VGA up to 10 megapixels.

The compact USB camera is available either with a plastic compound housing with a C/CS-mount lens adapter, or as a board-level version with an M12 or M14 lens holder or without a lens holder. Thanks to the adjustable flange back distance, fluctuations of standard lenses can be prevented, which means that zoom lenses can also be used. The board-level version comes with two general purpose I/Os, a built-in trigger and flash, as well as a built-in I2C bus for controlling external devices. This makes the industrial camera ideal for small device construction.

Also available as UVC version: camera models UV-1551LE (board-level with M12 lens holder) and UV-1552LE (only board-level).
