Get to know the industrial cameras and the E ° CAMBOX from Eckelmann. The E ° CAMBOX vision compact system offers you many proven standard machine vision features that let you get started right away to teach your machine how to see.

Image processing systems

Our machine vision team competently advises you on the selection of suitable components for your vision solution, from camera and optics through lighting to industrial PC and software for image analysis. And, of course, we also take care of the integration into your application as well as the configuration and programming of the image processing system.

The components from our image processing portfolio are optimally matched to our automation systems. If you also need additional components (such as simple vision sensors, code readers, 3D cameras or light-section sensors for laser triangulation, objectives, lighting technology, special housings ...), we will gladly develop a future-proof and manufacturer-independent package solution for you.

As an experienced integrator for image processing, we will find for you the components that best fit your requirements and plans from a technical as well as economic point of view.

E°CAMBOX: Ready-to-use image processing system

Also as a machine vision system with built-in RGB lighting for the best contrast in color applications.

Visit the YouTube channel of our subsidiary Rex Automatisierungstechnik and learn more about the advantages of RGB lighting, e.g. in image acquisition of QR-Codes.

Eckelmann has developed the E ° CAMBOX as a powerful multi-tool for machine-oriented image processing. The compact image processing system consists of camera, optics and lighting. Thanks to the compact and robust housing (IP54), the E ° CAMBOX can be easily integrated into the machine, whether mounted statically or as a ride-on.

It is excellently suited to realize a variety of standard machine vision tasks in a very short time. The simple integration into control architectures based on the E ° EXC control family and E ° Tools HMI user interfaces results in consistent solutions with high added value for the automation of your application.

The E°CAMBOX supports i.a. following functions:

  • Take and save individual images
  • Live image recording (crosshairs, brand contour and evaluation area can be faded in)
  • Positional compensation
  • Read barcode and data matrix code (Stacker Code PDF417, Code 2/5, Code 128, Code 39, Code 93, EAN-13)
  • Automatable calibration of the tool or machine coordinate system

Optics und lighting technology

The selection of suitable lighting technology and optics has a very large influence on the image quality and on what image processing algorithms can visualize and recognize in the captured images. Therefore, optics and lighting should always be tailored to the application. There are many factors to consider here, such as wavelength, angle of incidence, scattering, polarization, properties of observed objects (such as color, reflection of the surface, geometry ...).

Our machine vision experts know what's important and select the right standard components or develop customized lighting solutions.

A competent selection of optics and lighting technology accelerates the development, since one usually has to test the image processing systems less often.
