Cameras transmit images over Profinet

Simatic VS720A camera series has a Profinet connection for industrial image processing. The cameras possess improved image-recording features, a larger memory to accommodate more inspection programs and data, and a new processor architecture for shorter inspection times. Production data and image data of the cameras are transferred to an automation system or a human machine interfacing system simultaneously and deterministically via the Profinet connection using TCP/IP.
