12mm lenses

Telecamera intelligenteSmart camera

Get it straight: THIS is the smallest vision system in the world...

...30mm diameter: sensor, DSP processor, grabber, I/O, lens & LED illuminator, serial port!


A breakthrough vision sensor in the size and at the cost of a light sensor!

Models equipped with CMOS sensors can achieve very high speed with partial image acquisition and have a vastly superior dynamic range.

Mxx models do not provide any video output for user interface: they only have 3color (red/green/amber) LEDS and a built in pushbutton.

During setup, the built in field of view projector can be turned on, displaying 4 small light spots on the corners of the field of view.

Development, as for all SMARTVIEW models, is carried out on a PC, which is no longer required once a program is downloaded on the camera.
