Machine vision resources

07 August 2014

A 450-page Imaging and Vision Handbook, regular training courses, mobile device apps and a dedicated video channel are just some of the machine vision resources provided by Stemmer Imaging.

The Imaging and Vision Handbook is said to be an indispensable reference guide for all users of vision technology. Available in printed versions or as an e-book for Windows, Google Android and Apple mobile devices, the handbook provides detailed explanations of the different basic technologies related to illumination, lenses, cameras, image acquisition, software, cabling and systems as well as the functionality of important accessories. 

Each of these categories is supplemented by a comprehensive product section containing all of the technical data needed to select the best components for a given application.

For assistance in the design of optics for machine vision systems, the LensSENSOR app is available for download from the Apple iTunes Store. This allows a number of key parameters such as focal length, object distance and object size to be calculated as well as the determination of the maximum object width and height, working distance and aperture angle after selecting the sensor size used.

The app can also calculate the maximum resolution which can be achieved depending on the particular configuration.
