The machine vision professional gains a new tool with SWIR.
March 5, 2013
Short wave infrared (SWIR) machine vision imaging is a key tool in manufacturing and industrial processes to measure, monitor, control or otherwise manage the reliable and quality-conforming production of goods that do not respond well to standard range machine vision cameras.
Since its adoption in 2006, the GigE Vision standard has become a favorite of the machine vision industry, growing to more than 30% of units sold annually, according to data compiled by the Automated Imaging Association.
Since the emergence of CameraLink, the first dedicated data transmission standard for machine vision applications, the industry has made major moves to develop new standards to meet the rapidly developing technological advances in camera technology and an ever-expanding range of applications for vision.
