What are the benefits of using a USB interface camera?

USB cameras offer integration with minimal effort and, in some cases, can offer UVC-compliance, which enables plug-and-play. The bandwidth of USB can achieve 5Gbps (depending on whether you are using USB 2.0 or USB 3.0) and can reach a range of up to 7 metres with passive cables. However, you can use an active optic cable to facilitate a longer cable distance of up to 100m, which may require an external power source (Active optic cables, in most cases, are at a higher price point and may not provide power to the end device).

What are the 23U series cameras?

The 23U series of industrial cameras provides a cost-effective imaging solution tailored to meet the needs of applications requiring a compact and efficient system. This series employs a range of CMOS and CCD sensors from Sony, such as Pregius, Python, and Exmor, and sensors from ON Semiconductor (Onsemi). These compact cameras, with their efficient USB 3.0 interface, can reach a frame rate of up to 100 fps and a max resolution of 5MP (2,592×1,944).
