Sony SNC-CS20 and SNC-CM120

Share this on social media:

Tordivel now supplies the SNC-CS20 and SNC-CM120 network cameras from Sony. These models offer additional functionality to that of standard machine vision cameras and are suitable for robot vision integration, among other applications.

IP cameras are more traditionally used in remote CCTV monitoring for security purposes. With the latest Scorpion machine vision software, certain benefits of the CCTV market are brought into the machine vision market. The Sony network camera with built-in auto-iris and auto-focus can minimise the impact of varying light. Scorpion Vision Software can exploit this making the camera models and software a compelling package for certain machine vision applications.

In a robot guidance system, for instance, the camera is mounted on the robot arm to make adjustments for light as the robot moves from point to point. In addition, some IP cameras are wireless, so cabling is minimised. The IP cameras also compress the images to a greater degree than higher spec industrial cameras, which is advantageous for wireless transmission.
