15 years ago, IDS introduced the first industrial camera with USB interface to the market
With pioneering spirit to success
"Our decision to use USB was initially smirked at," recalls company founder Jürgen Hartmann. "But we made the interface suitable for industrial use. USB is very strongly driven by the consumer market and therefore the ideal solution to develop cost effective yet powerful camera applications." Within one year, IDS successfully completed the transition from the development of analogue frame grabbers to digital industrial cameras. In the meantime, the interface, already in its third generation, has become an integral part of the market – as has IDS. With well over one million cameras sold, the company is now one of the market leaders in the industrial camera sector.
The product portfolio has expanded significantly compared to 2004. The product range now includes over 600 models with USB 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1 Gen1 interfaces. Currently, the vision app-based industrial cameras IDS NXT with artificial intelligence provide groundbreaking developments and additional benefits for their users.
