A family of intelligent machine vision cameras with a USB 2.0 interface is available. The cameras are equipped with a host of software features designed to make machine vision easier to implement and control, while the USB interface provides a high-speed link for data downloads. The cameras are available in four resolution and speed combinations ranging from 752 by 480 pixel at 87 fps to 2,560 by 1,920 pixel at 6 fps. Lower resolution cameras are available in monochrome or color versions while the higher resolution cameras are only available in color. Each camera has a progressive-scan CMOS sensor, software-based exposure control, C-mount lens fittings and a USB 2.0 interface. The cameras all have the same 34 by 32 by 27.4-millimeter dimensions, allowing operators to interchange cameras without system modifications.
