Microscan: Machine vision smart camera
Microscan announces the availability of the Vision MINI Xi industrial compact smart camera with embedded Ethernet.
As part of Microscan’s AutoVISION® machine vision product suite, this tiny powerhouse is packed with features for close-range industrial auto ID, inspection, and other machine vision applications.
Microscan’s new industrial Vision MINI Xi is the world’s smallest fully-integrated smart camera with embedded Ethernet, measuring in at 1 in (25.4 mm) x 1.8 in (45.7 mm) x 2.1 in (53.3 mm) and weighing 3.2 oz (91 g). The Vision MINI Xi features both Ethernet and serial connectivity, a 24-volt interface, and optically isolated I/O in one compact package.
Manufacturing engineers looking for robust inspection, color matching, symbol decoding, or OCR can count on the Vision MINI Xi to fit into tight spaces in assembly line manufacturing and component tracking applications. The Vision MINI Xi can handle dot peen marks on power-train components, laser markings on medical devices or PCBs, as well as traditional printed barcodes on packaging and labels.
Together with the easy-to-use AutoVISION machine vision software, the Vision MINI Xi is the ideal solution for manufacturers who need to read barcodes, but require the flexibility to add additional inspection capabilities to their processes using a single hardware device. All Microscan smart cameras run on the same vision software with easy job portability, or upgrade to Microscan’s advanced Visionscape® platform with 50+ machine vision tools without the need to switch cameras.
