Advantech machine vision is a fully integrated vision system in a compact “smart” camera format. Machine vision systems are able to be configured and monitored remotely using an Ethernet connection to a PC or factory network. Small and rugged devices can be easily integrated into existing production lines, machinery, or moving equipment. Advantech machine vision with built-in opto-isolated I/O allows direct wiring to associated control devices. A 10/100 BaseTBase-T Ethernet port provides setup and monitoring access, runtime control, and standard communication protocols and passive Power over Ethernet (PoE) supports single cable interface. An integrated lamp connector provides power and strobe control to external LED light sources and the machine vision IDR allows manufacturers to combine 1D and 2D tracking with other inspection tasks, such as character reading (OCR) and feature verification.
Advantech VPS-3100 is a rugged and compact embedded vision system equipped with Intel® N3160 4 cores Braswell processor. The GoE feature significantly off-loads the GigE Vision protocols into dedicated co-processor which reconstructing the image. Two independent Gigabit Ethernet ports for multiple GigE Vision device connections with data transfer rates up to 2.0 Gb/s offer greatly enhanced computing power and connectivity with minimal footprint. Besides, thoughtful design ––Volume less than 0.9 Liter ––Isolated Digital I/O.
The VPS-3100 supports PoE (power over Ethernet), combining power and signal supply into a single cable, enabling synchronization with multi cameras acquisition. With the VPS-3100 significant cable reduction, system installation is simplified and T.C.O is notably lowered. Powerful and flexible DI/O, and compact size, the VPS-3100 is the perfect vision system for machine vision.
The Advantech Quartz industrial camera series have between 0.3-15.0 mega pixel CCDs and include ultra-fast speeds and a high level of technology in a very small form factor. With the Quartz series, you can choose to use many of the most popular data interfaces in the machine vision market: the popular Gigabit Ethernet interface comes with a 100 meter cable length, and PoE (Power over Ethernet) to provide camera power and data via a single cable, and also offer separate input/output ports for triggering or flash control.
