The color, monochrome and Bayer models are available with resolutions from VGA to 5 megapixels. They are suitable for machine vision applications in automation, traffic surveillance, quality assurance, medicine, logistics, microscopy and security. Drivers for LabView, HALCON, DirectX, Twain and WDM are included. All camera parameters and settings can be set via the shipped software.
