Vision MINI smart camera for reliable vision performance in embedded identification applications and inspection applications

The Vision MINI smart camera is designed specifically for reliable vision performance in embedded identification and inspection applications. As the world’s smallest fully integrated vision system, the Vision MINI’s ultra-compact size and wide angle optics provide the best performance available for machine vision tasks at close range.

With the Vision MINI, OEM design engineers can quickly implement robust inspection, color matching, symbol decoding, OCR and more in a single compact vision solution.

Compact & Lightweight

The Vision MINI is the world’s smallest fully integrated smart camera. Its compact size allows flexible positioning in tight spaces. The lightweight and durable magnesium alloy case weighs less than 2 oz.


The AutoVISION button provides one button set up of targeting and autofocus, and sets internal parameters to optimize image capture.

Reliability & Longevity

The Vision MINI delivers both high performance and reliability, along with the assurance of long term availability and support. This is essential for OEMs, who require uninterrupted availability throughout the lifecycle of their products, and enables them to focus on new development instead of obsolescence issues.

Powerful Capabilities

Features a robust tool set to address a wide range of automation challenges using vision technology. AutoVISION software provides an intuitive interface, step-by-step guides, and a library of presets that allow easy set up and deployment.

Scalable System

AutoVISION software allows easy expansion to more complex vision applications through migration to full Visionscape® software.
