Smart cameras from Vision Components such as the VC nano family require a fraction of the energy that PC-based machine vision systems consume
Smart cameras from Vision Components such as the VC nano family require a fraction of the energy that PC-based machine vision systems consume

According to the supplier, Intelligent cameras from Vision Components, which can independently record and analyze images, are not only more compact and easier to integrate than PC-based machine vision systems, but also have the added advantage of a better energy balance. This factor is becoming more and more important in factory automation and also plays a big role in standalone systems. The systems' energy balance is improved by their low power consumption. While a standard PC has an average power input of 150 W, the average for the smart cameras is 3 W - for the newest generation of standard models, the VC nano series, even less than 2 W. In an application with 24/7 operation, PCs - without screens, cameras, or other necessary equipment - consume about 1,300 kWh per year while smart cameras only consume about 25 kWh.
