Vision Components' right-angle head adapter changes viewing direction of smart cameras

Vision Components introduces a right-angle head adapter which tilts the viewing direction of Smart Cameras by 90°.


Vision Components (Ettlingen, Germany) introduces a right-angle head adapter which tilts the viewing direction of Smart Cameras by 90°. Thus, the integration of the already very small image processing systems into various industrial applications with limited installation space becomes even easier. The adapter is compatible with all standard cameras from Vision Components featuring a protective housing with head dimensions of 50 x 35 mm. Image recording is carried out by a CCD or CMOS sensor which is integrated in the camera head and connected to the processing electronics via a flexible flat cable. The adapter is bolted to the camera head and housing which does not impair the system’s suitability for industrial applications. Fitted with the adapter, Smart Cameras are just as resistant to vibrations, shocks, and rugged environmental conditions as standard VC models.

Vision Components GmbH, founded in 1996 by Michael Engel, inventor of the first intelligent camera for industrial applications, is a leading supplier in the field of machine vision. Branches and distributors represent the Ettlingen-based company worldwide in more than 25 countries. Vision Components develops and distributes intelligent, network-compatible real-time Smart Cameras, which are able to operate without a PC and can be integrated into almost any industrial facility. Typical applications include quality inspection and automation. Equipped with the proprietary multitasking VCRT operating system, VC Smart Cameras can be easily configured for all possible tasks. Furthermore, VC provides software libraries for a wide range of applications including motion capture, decoding, measurement, and positioning. Additionally, VC develops custom-tailored solutions for specific tasks such as wafer handling in the solar industry or OEM camera modules for medical devices technology.
