HAWK MV-4000 High-Performance Smart Camera
Available from Omron Microscan Systems
This smart camera quadruples the processing power of the previous generation. It boasts up to six times the frame rate of its predecessor, achieving real-time trigger response using an FPGA. The HAWK MV-4000 does code reading, code verification, inspection, guidance, and gauging, incorporating state-of-the-art algorithms that can serve applications in virtually any industry.
Users seeking high-quality images and a high level of configuration flexibility will appreciate this camera’s wide array of sensors, ranging from 0.3 MP to 5 MP with a pixel size of 4.8 μm. The system can be optimized for almost any application thanks to these sensors in combination with C-Mount lens options and plug-and-play external lighting. Although the HAWK MV-4000 is a smart camera rather than a PC-based device, its processing power enables speeds nearly equivalent to those reached by vision systems relying on PC processing external to the camera. A combination of extraordinary power and speed in a compact industrial package puts the HAWK MV-4000 in a category known by vision engineers as the “golden middle” between PC-based devices and the average smart camera on the market.
