Field of view and detection accuracy

The field of view of the camera and the detection accuracy depend on the working distance and the focal length of the lens used. The specified values ​​for the field of vision apply at a working distance of 1,200 mm. The values ​​for the detection accuracy are practical experience, in which Smart Klaus works reliably in a typical industrial environment. The values ​​that can be achieved under optimal environmental conditions are given in parentheses below.
