Modular OEM Imaging Engine
The MicroHAWK® Engine offers OEMs and machine builders the industry’s smallest, most powerful, modular, and scalable smart camera platform available for solving barcode and machine vision application challenges.
The design of the MicroHAWK Engine builds upon Omron Microscan’s 30+ years of experience working with the world’s largest OEMs. MicroHAWK allows nearly endless combinations of easy-to-use software tools, optics, sensors, and processor performance to meet any OEM application requirement. Extremely small, powerful, and simple – MicroHAWK is the only solution for your embedded application.
Measuring just 19.5 mm x 28.7 mm x 33.9 mm and weighing less than 14 g, the MicroHAWK Engine is intended for embedding inside instruments, automation machines, or on robotic equipment.
Built around an ultra-fast microprocessor, MicroHAWK easily solves application challenges ranging from simple barcode reading to intensive machine vision inspections that typically require smart cameras 10 times its size.
The MicroHAWK Engine’s comprehensive tool set – barcode reading and/or machine vision software, optics, sensor, illumination, and an IP-rated enclosure – allows you virtually unlimited flexibility in configuring your application.
Reliability and Longevity
MicroHAWK delivers both reliability and high performance with the assurance of long-term availability and support. Omron Microscan has served the OEM/Embedded market for over 30 years and we have a sophisticated understanding of the service and support required for the lifecycle of your machine.
