Published:  04 November, 2014

Datalogic has announced a smart camera which, it claims, sets a new standard in machine vision by providing advanced smart camera functions in an embedded vision sensor form factor. The modular P-Series camera uses interchangeable embedded lenses and illuminators that can be mounted and replaced in the field.

The camera is designed to tackle machine vision applications where ease-of-use, compactness and price/performance ratio are important criteria.

There is a choice of lenses in five focal lengths and seven lighting options, resulting in 70 different possible combinations. This is said to result in superior image acquisition capabilities and installation flexibility.
