We expand the portfolio of real-time capable ARM-based Smart Cameras running the VC Linux operating system by adding VC Z 0015 models featuring 2 Megapixel CMOS sensors. This new high-performance sensor captures up to 50 frames per second in full resolution (1,600 x 1,200 pixels) and supports exposure times of 15 µs with a high-speed shutter as well as up to 1.28 s with a low-speed shutter. The high processing speed of VC Z 0015 Smart Cameras is ensured by their dual-core Xilinx Zynq ARM processor with two Cortex-A9 cores clocked at 866 Mhz.
Cameras can be supplied with the field-tested "nano" housing measuring merely 80 x 45 x 20 mm or as VC pro Z in an IP67-rated protective housing, which is almost as compact at just 88 mm in length and comes with an optional integrated autofocus lens and LED illumination.
Our Z Board cameras are also available as an ideal solution for machine or robot integration. These can be fitted with an on-board sensor, a single remote head or two remote sensors, e.g. to enable stereo-vision applications.
