Ultra-small USB industrial digital camera

The MERCURY USB2.0 series (MER-U) camera is DAHENG IMAGING’s mature area scan industrial digital camera, featuring megapixel resolution, high definition, extremely low noise and compact design. The MER-500-7UM/C camera is a monochrome/color USB camera with the Onsemi MT9P031/MT9P006 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-500-7UM/C camera is powered over the USB interface. The MER-500-7UM/C camera has opto-isolated I/Os. The I/Os give MER-U maximum flexibility to adapt to specific needs. The camera has an outstanding price/performance ratio. The MERCURY USB2.0 series camera is especially suitable for machine vision applications such as surface inspection, alignment, defect detection, measurement, OCR, bar code and data code reading and so on. They are also suitable for desktop applications, such as microscope and documents imaging.
