Smart Cameras

​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:

  1. Easy to configure smart cameras for most machine vision tasks and 
  2. Freely programmable smart cameras, ideal for OEM & volume orders
