Learn more about machine vision! In our knowledge base we are explaining key technical terms about image processing. We give you an overview to topics like 3D machine vision or the established standards like CameraLink, GigE Vision or GenICam.
As vision systems evolve, we tend to see more cameras per system,
faster data rates and the use of network technology between the
camera and PC. All these factors increase demands on the cabling and
poor cabling or incorrect network switches can have serious effects.
In imaging and machine vision selecting the right cable can be an important consideration. A wide range of technical requirements, including
mechanical, thermal or chemical impacts, have to be considered. The following table gives a short overview of the most common cabling
specifications used for imaging and available from STEMMER IMAGING.
Twisted pair cable with an operating frequency of up to 250MHz for language
and data transfer, for multimedia and ATM networks.
Cat6 cables allow for the highest possible transmission security for machine
vision. They consist of four pairs of conductors and are not only suitable for
1000BASE-T and 1000BASE-TX (Gigabit Ethernet) but also for 10GBASE-T (10
Low smoke-, free of halogen-, Oil-resistant, Silicon and fat-free Cables
For some applications the cables used must meet defined standards for
both safety and environmental reasons. Many of the interface cables
can be specified with the following materials to meet most demands.
