Because it was the 25th Vision Show, and Adimec is celebrating our 20 year anniversary, we decided to look back on where machine vision has come from and where we are headed.
It is hard to do a good comparison of machine vision cameras based on the paper specifications. For instance some give dynamic range while other provide sensitivity. These two are related but not the same. Even cameras using the same image sensor do not perform the same. Seeing and testing the cameras for yourself is…
This blog post is repost of the following regarding considerations with rolling shutter or global shutter modes for CMOS cameras that we thought you would find interesting:
With their excellent image quality and robust design, machine vision cameras find homes in some unique and demanding applications beyond manufacturing and measurement instruments.
It is that time of year again when we reflect on the past year, and plan for the next. 2012 was a big year for Adimec as we celebrated our 20 year anniversary. Hopefully our blog has been a source of helpful information over the last year.
Many of our customers ask us how they should evaluate cameras in order to find the best solution for their application. There are several reasons why we feel the Photon Transfer Curve (PTC) is useful, especially if you are trying to get the most out of your imaging system such as when detecting small differences…
Once you have completed the steps to prepare for your machine vision camera evaluation, you are ready to receive the cameras and begin testing.
GenICam (Generic Interface for Cameras) is an international standard that provides a generic programming interface for all kinds of cameras regardless of the interface technology (CoaXPress, GigE Vision, Camera Link, USB3 Vision, etc.) [Source: EMVA ].
If you have determined the CoaXPress interface is right for your imaging system, or you have read our ePaper comparing machine vision interfaces (now including USB3 Vision) and think it might be, you now need to know what your product options are. The good news is there are lots of them.
Consumer cameras have been appealing for some industrial imaging applications because of their good quality to price ratio. High-end photography cameras previously had other advantages for certain applications such as automatic adjustments for changing lighting conditions and advanced color processing. For instance with red-light violation traffic applications, DSLR cameras are frequently used.
