3.1 microscope camera with interface USB,HDMI,AVI interface output to monitor or computer screen.
3.2 USB is now standard on most new laptops and computers for faster output speeds and improved resolution,All USB cameras support both Windows and MAC OS.
3.2 However, if you want to save images in the highest possible resolution then a USB camera with software is usually preferred.
You can then choose between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 with the difference being that higher frame rates are achieved with USB 3.0.
3.3 however, other cameras are also available which connect direct to a monitor via HDMI cable meaning that no computer is required.
These HDMI cameras are often called high speed or real time the image moves quickly on a monitor without any delay .
HDMI cameras also cut down the installation cost and space as a computer is no longer required. You can even perform measurements and annotate images without needing a computer.

1.1 Machine vision cameras are used in a wide variety of applications and fields. They are typically used to inspect, assemble, automate and 3D render objects.
1.2 Machine vision cameras typically use a combination of optics and image processing to capture data about the object in view. This data can then be used to control machines or visualize a scene as if it were being viewed through human eyes.
How does it work? machine vision camera
Machine vision camera use a combination of optics and image processing to capture data about the object in view. The most commonly used types are cameras that make use of a digital image sensor.
Machine vision cameras are an advanced type of imaging devices that can help machines and humans visualize three-dimensional objects. They are often used in robotics and industrial applications for tasks such as inspection, assembly, automation and 3D rendering. Most machine vision cameras use a combination of optics and image processing to capture data about the object in view.
application machine vision camera
4.1 Our embedded vision cameras are the perfect fit for a wide range of applications such as Automated guided vehicles (AGV), Autonomous mobile robots (AMR), object detection/recognition systems, quality control, safety systems, conveyor monitoring systems, barcode applications, industrial automation, etc.
4.2 wide variety of applications and fields. They are typically used to inspect, assemble, automate and 3D render objects.
What’s the difference between computer vision and machine vision?
Both machine vision and computer vision systems use a camera or cameras to capture video images or streams that they then process and analyze for automated decision-making. The primary difference between the systems is the depth of data processing each system does. Machine vision uses programmable logic controllers to quickly process and analyze images to make simple decisions, while computer vision uses PC-based processors for more robust image processing, making it a better fit for identifying and predicting trends or analyzing a greater number of variables.
Short-wave Infrared imaging (SWIR) is an advanced technique, used for producing images based on radiation in the region of the electromagnetic spectrum invisible to the naked eye.
2.1 All objects with a temperature above absolute zero (0K) will exhibit thermal emissions that are detectable from Mid- and long-wave infrared (MWIR/LWIR) spectral bands,
making it possible for thermographic cameras to gather images based on localized temperature variations.
2.2 Short-wave infrared (SWIR) imaging is distinct in that the radiation of interest is nearer to the visible spectrum but will still permit temperature sensing, usually over 100 °C. SWIR camera have occupied a unique spectroscopic niche in scientific and industrial markets by extending into wavebands that are invisible to both MWIR/LWIR thermal imaging and conventional optics.
SWIR camera SWIR imaging wavelength non-visiable
SWIR is the acronym for shortwave infrared and refers to non-visible light falling roughly between 1400 and 3000 nanometers (nm) in wavelength. The visible spectrum ranges from 400nm to 700nm, therefore SWIR light is invisible to the human eye. In order to detect SWIR wavelengths, we need dedicated sensors made of In GaAs (Indium Gallium Arsenide) or MCT (mercury cadmium Telluride) as silicon detectors are no longer sensitive to wavelengths larger than 1100 nm. In GaAs sensors are the primary sensors used in typical SWIR range. MCT is also an option and can extend the SWIR range, but these sensors are usually more costly and application dependent.
Applications of SWIR Imaging vision SWIR camera
SWIR imaging with cooled InGaAs focal plane arrays provides extremely high contrast with unprecedented resolution, enabling process engineers and researchers to visualize what was invisible previously.
It is easy to penetrate opaque materials non-invasively or to distinguish between regions that are chromatically similar using a SWIR camera. Some applications of SWIR imaging include:
Solar cell inspection
Enhanced vision assistance in misty conditions
Free space optical communication
Small animal imaging
Laser beam profiling;

industrial camera main application
2.1 Automation and robotics. Machine vision
Devices are widely used in industrial automation and robotics. Equipment for control systems generally needs a high resolution.
It has to transfer data quickly to control systems.
Production applications require a machine vision. The machine vision is the application of computer vision in manufacturing.
It allows controlling systems to see a live picture of what is happening in reality.
2.2 Production and manufactures
In conveyors, cameras can replace special sensors (We described Baumer edge sensors previously) and monitor the correct operation of them.
Such devices should have high accuracy and fast signal transmission. It needs to prevent occasional errors and emergencies.
To work in such area, devices with continuous shooting, 3D scanning, and photo focusing are required.
Linear cameras (with Line scan) are used for conveyors with continuously moving materials. They even perform line-by-line scans on the object’s surface.
These options are necessary for the printing or light industry. Such devices have built-in CMOS sensors for this.
For work in heavy industry with a high level of pollution and poor visibility, infrared SWIR cameras and multispectral thermal imagers are used.
Programmable FPGA industrial cameras have built-in image processing, which allows offline processing in real time, offloading the network and PC.
2.3 Science and medicine
With the development of nanotechnology and the rapid growth of medicine, various webcams are often used in these areas. Such units deal with microscopic objects or particles that people cannot see with their eyes.
The equipment uses special matrices sCMOS, CCD and EMCCD. The main advantage of these matrices is high quantum efficiency, low noise, and a large depth of the potential well.
Such cameras can shoot in very low light conditions and detect weak signals. Some models capture even single photons.
Hyperspectral and multispectral cameras are used to work with spectral channels. They are capable of capturing up to several hundred spectral channels in each frame.
The medicine industry requires compact models. For example, microscopic cameras are capable of transmitting images with high expansion, while having a miniature size. Today this equipment works in almost all branches of medicine, from dentistry to laboratories (endoscopes, borescopes, microscopes, etc.).
Special cameras are developed to work in cryogenics. They have unique protection against extremely low temperatures.
2.4 Traffic control
If you recently received a photo of your traffic violation, then know that you are being caught by an industrial camera. To control traffic, fixing fast-moving objects, special high-speed cameras are used. They are capable of operating at a frequency of 1,000 to 1,000,000 frames per second.
Outdoor equipment must have a dustproof and waterproof enclosure. Traffic control purposes require continuous work and a long life cycle. This applies to both external and internal components of the assembly.
2.5 In security systems and everyday life
cameras in the 21st century are largely synonymous with security. Industrial security camera installation requires flexibility and compact housing dimensions. Security systems use industrial cameras that can be mounted almost anywhere.
The main requirements for such devices are stability, compactness, and flexibility. Industrial outdoor security cameras must be protected from environmental influences. Models with night vision are frequently required, for example on television. Also, action cameras are widely used by ordinary people. They are capable of transmitting pictures even in 4k / UHD and 2k / HD. You can make slow motion wherever you are with them.
