An industrial machine vision camera (either CCD or CMOS) consists of a light sensitive sensor (CDD array) that converts incoming photons into electrical signals. These than pass through an A/D converter, (analogue to digital converter) before being transfered out of the camera. CCDs (Charge Coupled Devices) can be either frame transfer devices, interline transfer devices or full frame devices. Standard sensor resolutions include: VGA = 640×480, SVGA= 800×600, XGA = 1024×768 and SXGA = 1280×1024 Select Camera
