DAHENG Ultra-small USB 3.0 industrial digital camera

The MERCURY USB3.0 series (MER-U3-L) camera is DAHENG IMAGING’s mature area scan industrial digital camera, featuring megapixel resolution, high definition, extremely low noise, and compact design. The MER-230-168U3M/C-L camera is a monochrome/color USB3 Vision camera with the Sony IMX174 CMOS sensor. Thanks to the extremely compact (29mm×29mm×29mm), robust metal housings and locking screw connectors, the MERCURY cameras can secure the reliability of cameras deployed in harsh environments. The MER-230-168U3M/C-L camera is powered over the USB interface. Compared to the MER-230-168U3M/C, the MER-230-168U3M/C-L has no I/O interfaces, so it is lighter and handier. The camera has an outstanding price/performance ratio. The MERCURY family cameras are especially suitable for machine vision applications such as industrial inspection, medical, scientific research, education, security and so on.
