Customized OEM solutions

Our diversified product portfolio builds the ideal base to react to individual costumer requirements.


Real-time checking with embedded systems by Vision Components!

The freely programmable Smart Cameras by Vision Components represent an ideal performance. The basis for this performance build the Texas Instruments® DSPs, that are used depending on the different models requirements. A huge range of available sensors and various hardware designs, like protective housings with external sensor housings or integrated optics and lighting complete the portfolio.

All DSP models are equipped with the specifically developped operating system VCRT. VCRT is a mulitasking real-time operating system, designed for industrial use. It is based on C++ and is freely programmable. Thus, the ideal inspection program can be designed for every application

3D systems

Intelligent 3D systems for all applications

With our 3D embedded camera systems you are ready for all applications: Our 3D systems are available as board cameras or equipped with housing, if necessary with protective housing, also with integrated optics and lighting or equipped with extremely small sensor housings.

Two different procedures can be used with them: The VC nano 3D models additionally feature a laser, the required values are provided via laser triangulation. All other models are equipped with 2 sensors for stereo vision.

VC nano 3D series for laser triangulation including smart camera.

Laser Triangulation with VC nano 3D

With the smart laser triangulation system VC nano 3D we offer new options in the field of machine vision: intelligent 3D machine vision also suitable for 2D inspection tasks!

Embedded Stereo Vision Systems

All our cameras are suitable for stereo vision. They also serve as a basis for robot vision for example.
We offer both ARM-based stereo camerars and embedded systems with DSP.

to the 3D systems



In the field of software development we can look back on long time experience. Thus, we can offer the optimal operating system and several software packages specific to our customers.

Standard solutions for particular inspection tasks and application specific industry solutions are sure part of our portfolio.

VC Lib SW library with 300+ functions for machine vision tasks.

The VC Lib

The VC Lib sets no limits regarding the programming of inspection tasks. Besides several tailor-made inspection tools, our extensive library offers all possibilities for further development.

VC Smart Reader SW tool for decoding 2D codes, DMC, etc.

Der VC Smart Reader

The VC Smart Reader identifies reliably 2D codes, e.g. data matrix codes and barcodes, and is enormously fast with reading rates of 150 codes/per second. Code detection and reading is not affected by  the code's shape and size, its rotation and illumnination - it doesn't matter if the background is bright or dark. Mirrored and partially covered or destroyed codes are reliably identified, too.
