Vision Components has launched a new version of the intelligent high-performance camera VC4465/C, which ensures optimal colour image reproduction thanks to revised electronics.
The Smart Camera's key component is a 1GHz processor from Texas Instruments with a computing power of 8,000 MIPS. The camera models feature a ½-inch CCD sensor with a 768 x 582 pixel resolution providing a maximum frame rate of 55fps (110fps in binning mode). They are equipped with an RS232 and an Ethernet interface, a high-speed encoder interface and an external trigger input which enables jitter-free image recording even at high reading frequencies.
Basic versions are available with 4Mb Flash EPROM and 64Mb SDRAM for program and picture storage, which can be optionally extended to 128Mb. Like their predecessor models, the new intelligent cameras have a direct video output, four digital PLC inputs and four digital outputs. Programming is facilitated by Vision Components' VCLIB and COLORLIB programming libraries.
