  • Offer Profile
  • Image processing thrives on speed. The more pixels can be processed per second, the better. Driven by this motivating force, we set standards for hardware and software development of Smart Cameras. Vision Components' portfolio includes standard models as well as specifically developed solutions.

    Supporting the production steps in the industrial production process with state-of-the-art image processing is our aim from the very beginning - ranging from customized solutions to integration into turnkey installations.
     
Product Portfolio
  • Smart Cameras

  • Freely programmable Smart Cameras from Vision Components stand for optimum performance. They are miraculous for their tiny size and manage the same performance without additional PC. Many users may hardly believe that the computing power of Smart Cameras is comparable to that of conventional PC-based image processing systems and therefore often underestimate their possible applications.
  • VC nano

  • These Smart Cameras are only 80 x 40 x 20 mm small. Despite this small form factor they integrate computational power of up to 5600 MIPS and resolution of up to 5 megapixels. Like every intelligent VC Smart Camera the VC nanos also feature all necessary interfacing capabilities needed for a complete Machine Vision System.
