The Fire-i™ Digital Board Camera Remote CCD has exactly the same features and functionality as the Fire-i™ Digital Board Camera™, along with the possibility to extend the CCD to a remote distance and place the lens into a small volume.
This Fire-i™ Digital Board Camera Remote CCD is the ideal camera for industrial and/or robotic applications that require fixed position of the main camera board and unique placement of just the CCD part.
The remote board comes with the standard M12x0.5 lens holder and all Unibrain (and third party compliant) micro-lenses can be used.

Many image-processing configurations in the industry sector demand the constant motion of the camera according to a moving object. Instead of moving the entire camera, that contains fragile components and requires space, only the Remote CCD can follow the trace of the moving object.
Many applications in the Robotics sector require moving arms for digital imaging processing. Assembling the entire camera over the moving part can often produce mechanical damage of the camera due to the constant and sometimes impetuous movement of this part. In those cases, the fragile main camera board can be fixed at a stationery part of the robot, while the tolerant Remote CCD board can be assembled over the moving arm.
