The embedded systems offer real-time image processing suitable for demanding high-speed and line scan applications: all models are equipped with Xilinx’ Zynq module, an ARM dual-core Cortex-A9 with 866 MHz and an integrated FPGA.
In San Francisco, Vision Components offered insights into the new Z series to an American audience for the first time. The company set up a booth at the local exhibition SPIE Photonics West at the German Pavilion, stand 4601-04 on February 10–12. Two weeks later, the Z series was presented at the embedded world exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany, on February 24—26 in hall 1, at stand 109. The new camera generation is based on the board camera series VCSBC nano Z. With a footprint of 40 x 65 mm, these compact systems are especially easy to integrate into machines and plants. They are optionally available with one or two remote sensor heads and thus suitable for stereo applications. Users can choose between two enclosed camera types: the VC nano Z, which has housing dimensions of 80 x 45 x 20 mm, and the VC pro Z, which measures 90 x 58 x 36 mm and can be fitted with a lens and an integrated LED illumination. The new operating system VC Linux ensures optimal interaction between hardware and software.
