Ximea xiQ USB3.0 MQ042MG-CM-BRD


The Ximea xiQ USB3.0 MQ042MG-CM-BRD industrial camera is designed to be tiny in size, low in mass and with high efficiency, this series is a tremendous asset in the machine vision and mobile scenarios. Its compact design offers superb options in mobile solutions. The extremely low power consumption results in excellent properties in heat-sensitive environments. The semi-housed version of the Ximea xiQ USB3.0 MQ042MG-CM-BRD industrial camera comes as a complete camera with a cutout in the housing for a flex ribbon connection. It relieves the integrator of the necessity to handle sensitive board-level units where sensors and electronics are easily damaged in an integration process. The flat ribbon cable saves valuable z-axis space in cramped environments. Data, power, and IOs all run through this cable making integration a breeze. The Ximea xiQ USB3.0 MQ042MG-CM-BRD industrial camera is equipped with an AMS CMOSIS CMV4000 sensor, 2048 x 2048 resolution, and 4.2 megapixels.
