It is billed as the first smart camera in its class to incorporate multiple processing engines. This enables algorithm optimization via DSP, application management via CPU, and sensor management via FPGA. It is also the first smart camera to truly embed the application software, which is easily set up through a standard Web browser, says the vendor. The BOA features a compact, 44mm cube form factor, and its IP67-rated housing enables use in harsh, washdown environments. The vendor’s embedded iNspect software is a graphical point-and-click application that is designed to make life easy for both first-time and experienced vision users. “The BOA Vision System sets a new benchmark for single point inspection cameras in the industry. It offers advanced vision capabilities that are easy to integrate at an affordable price, while consuming very little space and power,” says Steve Geraghty, director of the vendor’s Industrial Products group. The BOA is available now in a monochrome version, with a color version to be available later this year.
