If you are in the US or Canada and are looking into having industrial cameras installed in your commercial property look no further, Sentry Surveillance has you covered! Industrial cameras are designed to operate in harsh conditions (such as high temperatures, pressure, and vibration). Controlling production cycles, tracking units on conveyors, detecting ultra-small parts, etc., requires them. They are therefore almost limitless in their applications. Identification of the goods is done with the help of the cameras. Furthermore, cameras can also be used to monitor these processes and provide the necessary safety. Choosing the right camera is only half the battle. An industrial camera is generally part of a complete image processing system, also called a vision system.
- Types of industrial security cameras
- Line scan cameras.
- Area scan cameras.
- 3D Cameras.
- Thermal cameras.
- 360º field of view cameras.
- High-speed cameras.
- SWIR Cameras.
- Drones or UAVs.
Below I will list a brief description of each type of Industrial Camera
Line Scan Camera- Line scan cameras are used in vision applications that image large objects, are high-resolution, are high-speed, or need perfect images.
Area Scan Camera- Area scan cameras contain a matrix of pixels that capture an image of a given scene. They are more general-purpose than line scan cameras and offer easier setup and alignment. Area scan cameras are best suited for applications where the object is stationary, even if only momentarily.
3D Camera – A 3D camera is an imaging device that enables the perception of depth in images to replicate three dimensions as experienced through human binocular vision. Some 3D cameras use two or more lenses to record multiple points of view, while others use a single lens that shifts its position.
Thermal Camera- A thermal imaging camera (colloquially known as a TIC) is a type of thermographic camera used in firefighting. By rendering infrared radiation as visible light, such cameras allow firefighters to see areas of heat through smoke, darkness, or heat-permeable barriers.
360 Field of View Camera- A 360 camera, also known as an omnidirectional camera, has a 360-degree field of view so that it captures just about everything around the sphere. 360 cameras are needed when large visual fields need to be covered, such as shooting panoramas.
High-Speed Camera- High-speed cameras can capture moving images with exposures of less than 1/1,000 seconds or frame rates higher than 250 frames per second. Photographs of fast-moving objects are captured and stored on a storage medium using this technology.
SWIR Camera- SWIR cameras detect reflected light like visible cameras. Due to the high absorption of SWIR light in water, the swimmers shown in the SWIR image exhibit high image contrast making them easier to detect.
Drones or UAV Camera- Unmanned vehicles such as UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), drones, UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles), and ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) may use a wide variety of cameras to capture different kinds of imagery, such as photos, thermal images, multispectral images for applications.
The options are endless when it comes to Industrial Cameras. Discuss with your installation company which will work best for what you are looking to accomplish.
