Since the 1980′s intelligent cameras, or smart cameras as they are sometimes referred to, have been used by industry for various purposes. Technology has enabled the producers to develop smaller more compact units, which has led to an increased demand of these devices. As the units are used in industrial settings, where heavy machinery may also be in use, the products are often manufactured using durable, resistant materials. The following paragraphs focus on the best smart cameras.
The Sony SXI, is according to the makers, ideal for demanding, rugged environments. It has been manufactured with a high performance GX533 processor, and is compatible with Linux or Windows operating systems. In contrast to conventional devices, this product processes images within the camera and then transmits to a PC over a network.
The device has a partial scanning function and has 128mb main memory and 1mb flash memory. There is also an integrated flash memory card. The manufacturers claim that the product has a low power consumption, and is protected with high shock and vibration settings. The dimensions of the product are as follows, 55 x 55 x 110, and weighs 400 grams.
The new IDR model by BOA, is apparently, simple to use. Despite its size, the makers suggest that it is highly durable and able to withstand extreme environments. A dual CCD sensor, monochrome or color, is able to process images at the rate of 60 images per second (color.) and 24 images per second, (monochrome)
The IDR model comes complete with a variety of software, and as the device is quite small, 44 x 44 x 39, is ideal for use in areas where space is limited. There is an integrated lighting control feature and 256mb storage memory. The makers also claim that the device has a low power consumption.
Potential buyers may hopefully, feel better informed regarding the use of the best smart cameras. A number of factors should be considered at the pre purchase stage, such as capability, software and operating environment.
