DAHENG Ultra-small USB 3.0 industrial digital camera

The MERCURY2 USB3.0 series (MER2-U3) camera is DAHENG IMAGING’s new generation area scan industrial digital camera. With improved built-in ISP algorithms, MER2-U3 series camera supports Decimation, Binning, Gamma, Black Level, Reverse, Digital Shift and more features. Providing multiple acquisition controls, the camera can adapt to various vision applications. The MER2-502-79U3M/C camera is a monochrome/color USB3 Vision camera with the Sony IMX250 CMOS sensor. The MER2-502-79U3M/C camera has opto-isolated I/Os. The GPIOs give MER2-U3 maximum flexibility to adapt to specific needs. Thanks to the compact design (29mm × 29mm × 29mm), robust metal housings and locking screw connectors, the MERCURY2 cameras can secure the reliability of cameras deployed in harsh environments. The MERCURY2 family cameras are especially suitable for machine vision applications such as industrial inspection, medical, scientific research, education, security and so on.
