The VC4002L released by Vision Components GmbH is a smart line-scan camera equipped with a 400-MHz (3200-MIPS) processor. It supports three integration modes. In free-running mode, a maximum scan rate of 11 kHz can be realized. The camera also can be triggered externally while maintaining a constant integration time with a maximum scan rate of 5.5 kHz in this mode. The third mode enables a variable integration time that is determined by the incoming signal, reaching a maximum scan rate of 11 kHz. The camera has a CMOS sensor with 7 μm × 7-μm pixels. The system offers 32 MB of SDRAM, Ethernet and RS-232 interfaces, and a C-mount lens mount.
