VC Base+ and VC Board Cam cameras

Share this on social media:

Vision Components now employs new 2.2 and 4.2 megapixel sensors from Cmosis in its VC Base+ and VC Board Cam lines.

These sensors provide both high resolution and high frame rates, are light-sensitive and deliver an excellent image quality. They feature a global shutter, a fast trigger mode, and a triggered line scan mode that allows for frame rates up to 18kHz. The Cmosis-based cameras are therefore suitable for use as line scan cameras in high-speed applications.

Cameras available with the new sensors are the standard models VC7222 and VC7224 and the board cameras VCSBC6222 nano RH and VCSBC6224 nano RH, which feature a remote sensor head. Measuring 2/3 inch, the 2.2 megapixel sensor can record up to 46 images per second at full resolution (2,048 x 1,088 pixels). By means of a freely programmable ROI setting, it can also support the FullHD resolution, or reach a frame rate of 320 images per second at VGA resolution.

Measuring 1 inch, the 4.2 megapixel sensor provides large pixels and is especially light-sensitive and low-noise. At full resolution (2,048 x 2,048 pixels), it can record 23 images per second. In addition to high-speed tasks, typical applications are industrial image processing, traffic monitoring, 3D scans, motion surveillance, automotive applications, microscopy, and barcode and OCR recognition.
