Imaging Basics – Calculating Exposure time for machine vision cameras

calculate camera exposure

    In any industrial camera application, one key setting is the exposure time of the camera.  In cases where this is set arbitrarily, the resulting image maybe blurry due to movement of the scene we are imaging.  To maximize our settings, we can calculate the minimum exposure time to eliminate blur and maximize our …
