ETTLINGEN, Germany, July 7, 2011 — The compact intelligent cameras in Vision Components GmbH’s VC nano series are available as board cameras or in a protective IP68 enclosure. Easy to integrate into machines, they deliver high-performance image processing, especially when combined with proprietary tested and proven software tools. Various software programs are available for a variety of applications: VC Bar-Code Reader for fast and reliable 1-D code detection; VC Smart Reader for the detection of data matrix codes; and VC Smart Finder for contour-based object recognition.

Suitable for use in machine vision applications and based on a board that is populated on both sides, the cameras measure 40 × 65 mm or 80 × 45 × 20 mm. An additional hardware variant facilitates integration. Several models are available with a remote camera head measuring 22 × 22 × 19.5 mm and featuring a connection cable of up to a few meters in length for installation flexibility.

The stripped-down design notwithstanding, all nano cameras equal the performance of considerably larger PC systems. Depending upon the model, they feature 300-, 400- or 700-MHz digital signal processors with a maximum computing power of 5.6 billion instructions per second. They independently execute all image processing routines.

Images are recorded by a global shutter CMOS sensor with maximum resolution of 5 megapixels. Up to 128-MB DDRAM and up to 32-MB Flash are available for program and image storage. A freely programmable 100-Mb Ethernet interface enables live video output on a PC. Two digital inputs and four outputs are available for integration into existing automation environments.

A Power over Ethernet power supply will be available shortly for the cameras.
