Industrial smart cameras for a wide range of machine vision applications

Industrial smart cameras are a key component in machine vision systems. The more essential function is to convert optical signals into high-definition industrial smart cameras as ordered electrical signals. Choosing the right camera is also an important part of the design of the machine vision system. The camera not only directly determines the image resolution and image quality, but also directly relates to the operating mode of the whole system. Industrial smart cameras, also known as cameras, have high image stability, high transmission capacity and high anti-interference ability compared to traditional civilian cameras (cameras). Currently, industrial smart cameras on the market are mostly based on CCD or CMOS. Chip camera.

Industrial smart cameras are generally composed of an image acquisition unit, an image processing unit, image processing software, a network communication device, and the like. Thanks to the new DSP, FPGA and mass storage technology, the intelligence is continuously improved to meet the needs of a variety of machine vision applications. Moreover, it is widely used in electronic equipment, printing machinery, textile machinery, CNC machine tools, laser processing, precision measurement, packaging equipment, medical equipment inspection and other fields.

Suitable applications for industrial smart cameras:
1. Inspection: Detection of assembly errors, surface defects, damaged originals and missing features. Set objects and feature orientations, shapes, and positions.
2. Guide/alignment: Guide automation equipment and robot equipment. Align components for high precision assembly operations and other manufacturing processes.
3. Measurement/Measurement: The components are measured to check the critical dimensions. Measure components to organize and categorize processes.
4. OCR/OCV: Reads and verifies the alphanumeric characters directly marked on the component and printed on the label.
5. Presence/Deletion: Detects the presence or absence of simple features and objects to provide basic pass/fail results.
6. Barcode reading: As part of a comprehensive inspection, a one-dimensional bar code and a two-dimensional matrix code are read for a particular ID application.
