How an Industrial Camera Works

Typical industrial cameras include an image sensor (CCD or CMOS), lens and a digital interface. With hundreds of thousands of light sensitive cells (or pixels), the image sensor converts light into electrons. The digital interface then converts the electron output to form an image and transfers it to a computer. Industrial cameras include a variety of types. There are analog and digital cameras. Color or monochrome. In the digital arena, there are line scan and area scan cameras. Other industrial camera types include block cameras, board level cameras, UV, Infrared, HD, multi-CCD, and smart cameras.
