The HVC from Omron Electronic Components is now available from Farnell. The distributor says that the unit can help reduce time to market with10 image sensing functions for modular facial recognition for use in digital signage, vending machines, home appliances and security doors.
The HVC-P2 is the next iteration of the HVC with 10 times the recognition speed of the original. Users can select 160×120 pixels, 320×240 pixels or no output image.
Modular components add functionality to a design, without the design engineer needing extensive knowledge of a complex topic, such as facial recognition, explained Cliff Ortmeyer, global head of technical marketing for Farnell said: “The Omron HVC. . . is one such device that allows design engineers to simply and effectively equip their IoT device with the latest technologies, while keeping time to market and costs down,” he said.
The HVC-P2 has long range and wide angle options with horizontal detection range of 54° and 94° respectively and vertical detection ranges of 41° and 76° respectively. Detection resolution is 1600×1200 pixels.
The supply voltage is 5VDC ±10% with consumption current below 0.4A. Operating temperature range is from 0°C to +50°C (no condensation or freezing).
The camera board size is 25mm x 25mm and the main board size is 45mm x 45mm.
