What are smart cameras?
Standard industrial cameras acquire an image and then send it to another device for storage & analysis. Smart cameras differ from this by having storage and processing ability built into the camera case. Often smart cameras also have built in I/O and communications (network, RS232 etc) allowing them to run and interface with other automation equipment autonomously. Smart cameras do not need a PC in order to run which makes them compact and robust – ideal for industrial environments.
The smart cameras we supply form 2 main groups:
- Easy to configure smart cameras for most machine vision tasks and
- Freely programmable smart cameras, ideal for OEM & volume orders
