VISION

Machine Vision (MV) is the technology and methods used to provide imaging-based automatic inspection and analysis for such applications as automatic inspection, process control, and robot guidance, usually in industry.

Camera << Area Scan Camera >>

Area Scan cameras are ideal for still targets and capturing freeze frames of a scene. Area scan cameras capture 2-D images using a certain number of active elements (pixels), also called matrix cameras.

Camera << Line Scan Camera >>

Line scan imaging uses a single line of sensor pixels (effectively one-dimensional) to build up a two-dimensional image. The second dimension results from the motion of the object being imaged. Two-dimensional images are acquired line by line by successive single-line scans while the object moves (perpendicularly) past the line of pixels in the image sensor.

Camera << TDI Line Scan Camera >>

TDI (time delay and integration) technology is a method of line scanning which provides dramatically increased responsivity compared to other video scanning methods.

Optics << FA Lens >>

Factory Automation (FA) lens applications differ from others that employ digital cameras, such as security or intelligent transportation systems (ITS) in that they are designed for high accuracy usually have controlled illumination and part location.

Optics << Telecentric Lens >>

A telecentric lens is a compound lens that has its entrance or exit pupil at infinity; in the prior case, this produces an orthographic view of the subject.

Lighting << Direct Lighting >>

Lighting is one of the most critical elements in a vision system and is in fact key to achieve stable and repeatable results. Incorrect illumination may result in extensive and time consuming image processing or, in the worst case, in crucial information loss. Machine vision lighting is defined as computerized light measurement.
