Smart camera vs. PC-connected industrial camera | GeT Cameras

Are you looking for the right camera system for your industrial automation or visual inspection application?

GeT Cameras offers a wide portfolio with more than 200 industrial cameras. Their cameras should be connected with a cable to a PC. Compared to smart cameras, industrial cameras are a better solution. There are 3 main advantages:

  1. Cost-effective solution
    • PC-connected industrial cameras offer a much more affordable solution, especially for projects where multiple cameras are being used. In contrast, smart cameras often come with a high price tag because of their specialized hardware.
    • GeT Cameras’ PC-connected industrial cameras start at € 115 per piece. All prices and products are visible on their website: https://www.get-cameras.com/industrial-cameras.
  2. Rapid image processing
    • When it comes to image processing, an industrial PC is much more powerful than a smart camera. PCs have high-performance processors and powerful GPU’s. These features enable a more advanced and quicker image acquisition, processing power and analysis. This results in an improved operational productivity.
  3. High flexibility and customization
    • GeT Cameras’ PC-connected industrial cameras offer flexibility when choosing your specific camera model, lens and software tools. You can also customize your imaging parameters to best suit your specific requirements. Besides that, their cameras are GenICam™ compatible and support a variety of 3rd Party software such as MvTec Halcon, Labview, Cognex, Aurora Vision and OpenCV.
