Low Cost Machine Vision System Under $4000 USD

The cost of machine vision have tremendously reduced due to technology advancement. New image sensor technology allow camera makers to engineer lower cost camera with good quality images. Breakthrough in LED manufacturing and optical solution increases the light intensity and consistency in illuminating the inspection part.

A typical GigE interface camera using Sony ICX445 sensor can deliver up to 30 frame per second at 1.3 Mpx. The cost of such camera is approx. 600USD. Assuming a working distance of 150mm, this setup can support application ranging from Field of view (FOV) 180 X 130mm with ~0.15mm/pixel resolution to 24 x 18 mm with ~0.02mm/pixel resolution.

With a high resolution lens, integrated with low cost lighting with strobe controller the optics and lighting cost will round up to not more than 300USD + 800USD.

Below tabulate the cost of a typical mid-range vision system.
