MAY 13, 2009--The space-efficient VCSBC4012 nano board camera features a CMOS sensor with 5-Mpixel resolution. Camera dimensions are 40 x 65 mm. With both sides of the board populated with components, the VCSBC4012 nano is a redesigned version of the VCSBC4012 single-board camera, which has a 40 x 120-mm footprint. It is a complete machine-vision system on a single board suitable for standalone operation; external PCs are not required.

World premiere at Hannover Messe 2009
VC debuts the ultracompact vision system VCSBC4012 nano
Ettlingen - At Hannover Messe 2009, Vision Components introduced a new member of the VC BoardCam family: the cost-efficient VCSBC4012 nano, which features a CMOS sensor with a 5 megapixel resolution. With its excep-tionally small dimensions of only 40 x 65 mm, it is almost certainly the smallest vision system in the world. The VCSBC4012 nano is a redesigned version of the small VCSBC4012 single board camera, which has a 40 x 120 mm footprint. By populating both sides of the board with components, Vision Components has managed to develop a Smart Camera which is even smaller than its predeces-sor.
Like all VC products, the VCSBC4012 nano is a complete machine vision sys-tem on a single board which is suitable for stand-alone operation. As a result, external PCs are no longer necessary. Because of its tiny size, the VCSBC4012 nano is ideal for applications where space is at a premium.
Vision Components GmbH was founded in 1996 by Michael Engel, inventor of the first intelligent camera for industrial applications. Today, VC is a leading supplier in the field of industrial image processing. The Ettlingen-based company develops and distributes intelligent, network-compatible real-time cameras. Equipped with the proprietary multitasking operating system VCRT, the devices operate without an additional PC, making them easy to integrate into almost any industrial facility. Typical application areas include quality and completeness checks, measurement technology and biometric access control.
