Machine vision camera and boards boost system integration

January 30, 2017 // By Julien Happich
ADLINK Technology announced the release of NEON-1021 Intel Atom E3845 processor-based smart camera, EOS-1300 4CH PoE Compact Vision System, and PCIe-GIE72/74 2/4CH GigE Vision PoE+ frame grabbers, delivering precise image acquisition with high integration, effectively reducing TCO.

The NEON-1021, the first in ADLINK’s new value line of smart cameras, features high performancequad core Intel Atom processors, speedy Multi-ROI image capture, and FPGA-accelerated image pre-processing. Middleware support for the NEON-1021 is complete and verified, accommodating 90% of popularly utilized machine vision software and providing high-speed multi-ROI capture, presenting significant competitive advantage over conventional smart camera and compact vision systems.

The EOS-1300 compact GigE vision system is equipped with 6th Generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors and four independent PoE (power over Ethernet) ports. FPGA-based function allows the EOS-1300 to provide programmable de-bounce filtering, on-the-fly triggering, and advanced encoder functions for real-time precision control with no CPU loading or requirement for additional devices. Advanced I/O deployment, wide operating temperature support and onboard license protection all enable the EOS-1300 to increase reliability while reducing TCO and TTM, making it the ideal solution for Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, & Medical Device applications requiring high computing power and time-deterministic operation in a durable package with minimal footprint.

With comprehensive PoE power protection exclusive to ADLINK, multi-card capture, and smart PoE management, combined with ADLINK’s extensive experience in GigE Vision-based solutions, the PCIe-GIE72/74 provides complete support for a wide range of machine vision applications. Key assets such as cameras and sensors are protected from damage by the PCIe-GIE72/74’s PoE power protection. As well, a user friendly PoE management utility and APIs monitor and control PoE ports in real time and enable prediction of possible failure events.  Moreover, integrated software license management and advanced FPGA-based Trigger Over Ethernet synchronize multi-camera acquisition, significantly reducing ownership costs.
