NI recommends the new, higher performance NI 1732 for new applications.

The NI 1722 Smart Camera, powered by a 400 MHz PowerPC processor, is a real-time target for machine vision. The high-quality Sony CCD image sensor acquires monochrome VGA (640 x 480) resolution images at 60 frames per second. Camera I/O includes two optoisolated digital inputs, two optoisolated digital outputs, one RS232 serial port, and two Gigabit Ethernet ports.

You can configure the NI Smart Camera with NI Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (AI), an easy-to-use stand-alone programming environment for creating full visual inspection applications. The NI Smart Camera features a license for Vision Builder AI software that you can use to access the full list of functions to program any NI Smart Camera and to emulate NI Smart Cameras even when the hardware is not physically connected.

If you prefer more customization, you can program the NI Smart Camera with NI LabVIEW software and the NI Real-Time Vision Development Bundle that includes all of the modules needed for programming LabVIEW vision applications on real-time targets.
