This camera IS a complete, self-contained vision system!

SMART Cameras with on board DSP

A whole range of matrix and line scan cameras with on board DSP processor: great for machine vision applications with NO PC and NO Frame grabber, at low cost and with high processing power, up to 3200 MIPS!

Image sensor, grabber, DSP processor, video putput, I/Os, Ethernet or RS232 are all included within a small camera!

Several product lines available: from lowest cost (400EUR) to highest resolution and top performance (1280x1024 x 3200MIPS)

Including world's smallest and world's most powerful (Click to believe!)

All manuals (HW & SW) downloadable here!

The most outstanding features...

  • Unrivaled cost effectiveness (gets rid of PC and frame grabbers)
  • Top reliability ("What is not there, will never fail")
  • Extremely compact solutions with minimum cabling.
  • Vision Tools visual development environment: build your application without programming, using our wide range of configurable tools.
  • extensive image processing libraries.

Available versions:

Several models are available, from the lowest cost to the highest performance and features.

Family map:

  • Fast smart camera<< C6: high processing power (1200MIPS), up to 54frames/second, Ethernet connectivity!
  • Small smart camera<< Mxx: 30mm diameter threaded waterproof case including lens and LED light source.
  • Smart camera<<SBC50: open frame progressive scan, very low cost.
  • Intelligent camera<< VCxx: standard models, ADSP CPU, clock between 32 and 52MHz, progressive scan.

Chose your model according to the features you need:

  • Processor:
    • TI 32 bit RISC @ 400MHz - 3200MIPS (Serie C6)
    • TI 32 bit RISC @ 150MHz - 1200MIPS (Serie C6)
    • ADSP (32-75MHz, VCxx and M series)
  • Memory:
    • 2M RAM e 512K Flash
    • 8MRAM e 2M Flash
    • 8M EEprom
  • Sensor features:
    • from 500x582 to 1280x1024
    • Progressive scan, asynch reset
  • Frame rate from 20 to 113 frames/second
  • CCD / CMOS sensors
  • Video oputput:
    • CCIR B/W
    • Color SVGA
    • Color overlay
  • Case:
    • standard metal case, C lens
    • open frame (low cost OEM version)
    • 30mm diam threaded waterproof case  (Mxx).

Accessories:

DC power (10-18Vcc or 24V) can be supplied by any power unit or you can purchase our 220VAC adaptor (also available for DIN rail).

All cables (power, I/O's, video, RS232) are available ready-made in standard lengths (5, 10, 25m) or custom cut (see price list).

In order to provide a handy user interface device, with no need of more complex devices, a simple keypad can be connected and powered by the camera itself. You'll thus be able to implement menu driven setup, ROI selection and the like with a simple, cost effective device.

NEW! Need to connect several SMARTVIEWs to a PC or PLC with only one RS232 available? Or share information among 3 or more cameras? Or connect to a fieldbus (like Profibus) device? You can now convert SMARTVIEW's RS232 link into a different interface, like Ethernet, Profibus RS422, RS485and more. And you don't need to change your software! Click here to know more 

Pricing:

Our price list includes all models and accessories, with a summary of their charachteristics; all amounts are in EURO and KLits.

As you will notice, prices tend to be just slightly higher than prices of comparable plain cameras (i.e. cameras with no on board processor): great savings are obviously achieved through elimination of PC or other external processors, frame grabbers, racks and the like.


Would you like to receive more information or to give us some feedback?

If you wish to receive more literature or to let us know your comments, please use our feedback form (it's in Italian: just ignore everything you can't understand there and just fill the text boxes!); at least, you can try and send us e_mail; we will call back in english.
