The Pictor M1248/E smart camera from Vision & Control GmbH operates at 100 fps and is equipped with Ethernet, digital input/output and fast trigger input for image acquisition. The system is based on a progressive-scan 640 × 480-pixel CCD sensor and processes up to 107 full images per second. It operates from a PC via the VCWin universal user interface, which can immediately test and amend programs. A digital signal processor close to the sensor processes image data with microsecond accuracy. Functions include measurement technology, optical character and pattern recognition, surface control, position/rotational position recognition, blob analysis, and communication tools and protocols. A remote control interface simplifies integration into any machine vision system.
