OMRON has announced the launch of the new OMRON MicroHAWK F440-F Smart Camera and says this highly configurable smart camera with a 35 frame-per-second 5-megapixel monochrome global shutter sensor brings exceptional performance to virtually any machine vision application.

The F440-F boasts a host of features that make it a standout solution in the industry. Its C-mount lens compatibility and support for external lighting options allow users to optimise their imaging setup. Additionally, the company says the F440-F’s compact size positions it as the smallest smart camera in its class, ideal for space-constrained environments. OMRON’s intuitive AutoVISION setup tool allows for quick and easy configuration of highly complex applications, empowering users to achieve optimal imaging performance in a fraction of the time.

What sets the F440-F apart is its compatibility with existing systems. It is pin-compatible with the MicroHAWK F430-F smart camera, ensuring a clear upgrade path without the need for complex rewiring. Ensuring seamless integration and connectivity, the MicroHAWK F440-F supports various communication protocols, including Digital I/O, RS-232, Ethernet TCP/IP, EtherNet/IP, and PROFINET. Power options are equally flexible, with the F440-F supporting both Power over Ethernet (PoE) and direct 24V power supply.
