Automation World article – Advanced Industrial CMOS Image Sensors Deliver Application Benefits

12th July 2022

CMOS image sensors, designed especially for scanning applications, use a state-of-the-art, low noise, global-shutter pixel technology and offer electro-optical performances that were barely achievable with a pixel twice its size a few years ago.

Modern manufacturing and logistics distribution centers need to increase productivity levels by increasing conveyor speeds and widening fields of view and working ranges. However, this is limited by conventional automated inspection and scanning camera systems that use more traditional 4:3 or square format machine vision CMOS image sensors, which have the severe drawbacks of many redundant vertical pixels, and lower frame rates.
