Microscan Introduces the World’s Smallest Machine Vision Smart Camera with Embedded Ethernet

vminixi_1D_bgmeter_1.jpg

The Vision MINI Xi smart camera is the world's smallest machine vision system available with embedded Ethernet connectivity. Housed in our patented mini design and featuring built in lens and LED lighting, our award-winning compact smart camera is now available for flexible implementation of machine vision inspection (from decoding to color matching to OCR and more) into industrial environments. The Vision MINI Xi has corner-exit cables with both serial and Ethernet options to meet any connectivity requirement in space-constrained applications, and also packs 24 V interface, optically isolated I/O, and autofocus into its tiny form factor for powerful machine vision tasks with a small footprint.
