Vision System for Multi-Camera Applications
The GEVA-300 system offers cost savings for vision applications like final inspection of large assemblies.
The unit's six high bandwidth Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) ports are compatible with a wide range of GigE cameras, which can be mixed to suit the application need, and the fanless unit is rugged and reliable enough for harsh factory applications. Camera expansion is easily accommodated using commercially available network technologies, allowing large configurations to be realized with lower system cost. The vision system can also be expanded with an optional PL-USB companion module that offers I/O expansion and easy integration of up to four of the company's DALSA Genie cameras. In addition to the six Gigabit Ethernet ports (four of which are typically used for connecting cameras), the system includes dedicated display and USB ports for setup and run-time control, and a serial port for factory communication. Camera triggering, strobe outputs and opto-isolated I/O are interfaced using the companion PL-USB module. Vision solutions are set up using the company's iNspect or Sherlock application software.
