Right-angle head adapter

Share this on social media:

Vision Components (VC) has introduced a right-angle head adapter, which tilts the viewing direction of VC smart cameras by 90°. The adapters are designed to simplify the integration of the small image processing systems into industrial applications with limited installation space.

The adapter is compatible with all standard cameras from Vision Components featuring a protective housing with head dimensions of 50 x 35mm. Image recording is carried out by a CCD or CMOS sensor, which is integrated in the camera head and connected to the processing electronics via a flexible flat cable. The adapter is bolted to the camera head and housing, which does not impair the system's suitability for industrial applications. Fitted with the adapter, VC smart cameras are just as resistant to vibrations, shocks, and rugged environmental conditions as standard VC models.
