Machine Vision Cameras

Machine vision cameras are used to inspect and analyse objects automatically in an industrial or production environment. The data collected can then be used to control a process or manufacturing activity. Machine vision cameras can be used in many applications to check the position of something, colour, size, shape or whether an object is there or not. As well as look at and decipher a standard 2D barcode and even printed characters.
With a comprehensive range of Machine Vision Cameras from Sony, Basler and Datalogic, featuring 3D cameras, area scan, embedded, IP cameras and Line scan cameras OEM Automatic can offer a camera to suit almost any application.
OEM Automatic supplies cameras to capture 2D images in mono and colour, 3D images and also the innovative polarised cameras to detect the direction of reflected light.
Our extensive range from leading suppliers, includes GigE, USB, CoaXpress, CameraLink & Bcon (LVDS & MIPI) interfaces, resolutions from VGA to 20MP, rolling and global shutters and monochrome or colour options.
We also offer a strong range of smart cameras, which offer a camera and a computer in the same device.
If you have any questions on cameras for machine vision applications please feel free to contact us.

Area Scan Cameras

The majority of applications for image acquisition use area scan cameras, the sensors used in these types of cameras have a large matrix of pixels to allow for 2D images to be generated in one exposure cycle. There are different interfaces to consider when selecting an area scan camera, with various interfaces available from our suppliers, Datalogic, Sony and Basler, suitable for all types of applications. GigE (Gigabit Ethernet) is a universally applicable digital interface, GigE vision standard mean there is a high degree of standardisation, so GigE cameras can be easily integrated into all image processing applications. With cable lengths up to 100 meters and compatibility with multi-camera set ups. (Basler Ace, Ace 2, and Ace MED, Sony XCG and XCG Polarized and Datalogic M-Series) USB3.0 interface is notable for its high transfer bandwidth and real-time compatibility and is completely plug and play ready. USB3.0 is becoming a major interface for industrial, medical and mass market applications. (Basler Ace, Ace 2, Ace MED, Pulse, and Dart and Sony XCU) CameraLink interface cameras are specifically designed for industrial applications so can handle large amounts of data easily and securely, currently the recommended standard interface for data rates is from 100MB/s to 800MB/s. (Basler Ace and Beat, Sony XCL) CoaXPress interface (CXP), unlike other interfaces, requires an interface card, however it can transfer large data volumes at high transmission speeds across long distances, which is valuable in certain applications offering possibilities for high sophisticated image processing solutions. (Basler Boost) OEM Automatic supply area scan cameras from Basler, Datalogic & Sony, the range includes cameras to capture 2D images in mono and colour and the innovative polarised cameras to detect the direction of reflected light. Our extensive range from leading suppliers, includes GigE, USB, CoaXpress, CameraLink & Bcon (LVDS & MIPI) interfaces, resolutions from VGA to 61MP, rolling and global shutters and monochrome or colour options.
Basler Racer Line Scan Camera

Line Scan Cameras

A line scan camera has the ability to read image data one line at a time, meaning it doesn’t observe the image as a whole. The benefit of this seamless recording stye means it reviews images precisely line by line, allowing for inspections of over-long objects or even endless webs of material. The Basler Racer line scan camera is highly sensitive and well suited for applications that require both high speed and high image quality. Available in monochrome, with various resolutions and GigE or Cameralink interface. The Basler racer is especially well suited for the following applications: • Web inspections (such as films, paper, cotton, textiles) • Sorting & packaging (such as refuse, postal mail, foodstuffs, packaging) • Transport-related applications (such as underfloor, rail, overhead line and container inspections)

Embedded Cameras

Basler’s embedded vision kits include all important components to evaluate Basler dart camera modules, the platforms and their various interface technologies enable them to be easily designed into embedded vision systems. Embedded vision kits give you everything you need to easily integrate them into your system, with three kinds of Embedded Vision Kits available, a plug and play evaluation kit with a dart USB camera module, development kits comprising dart camera modules with a BCON for LVDS or BCON for MIPI interface as well as Add-on Camera Kits to operate Basler cameras with NXP, Qalcomm and Nividia (Jetson) processor boards. The included Software Development Kit (SDK) simplifies the creation of applications in various programming languages such as C, C++, C#, VB.Net. All components of Basler’s Embedded Vision Kits work together seamlessly, making it easier to perform the integration for your embedded vision project. Tools are also available for accessing Amazon’s Web Service (AWS) enabling yet more imaging analyse opportunities.
