Turbo boost for multi-camera embedded machine vision system
2 Dec 2013
The Geva series incorporate the processor inside an industrial, fanless camera controller rather than the camera head. This brings easier integration, since it can be positioned in a chassis alongside other automation controllers, and smaller camera size for use where space is at a premium.
The low power, high-performance Gen3 Core i7 @ 3.2 GHz turbo processor is well suited for most vision applications. Geva 3000 also features 8 GB DDR3 1333 MHz fast onboard program memory that is ideal for multi-camera or high resolution images. The Geva 3000 comes complete with either iNspect Express or Sherlock machine vision software running on the Microsoft Windows 7 Embedded Operating System.
Supports Teledyne DALSA area scan and line scan cameras
The Geva 3000 supports Teledyne DALSA area scan and line scan cameras. The GigE versions feature 6 GigE ports for multi-site inspection or multi-point connections. A wide range of USB, RS-232, DSUB, DVI-D and HDMI display ports are available for interfacing to PL-USB (a companion I/O expansion module allowing for easy integration of up to 4 additional Teledyne DALSA Genie cameras), peripherals, serial PLCs and multiple display options with resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 pixels.
The CL version incorporates the Teledyne DALSA Xcelera-CL PX4 Dual frame grabber. This board can acquire images simultaneously from two CameraLink Base style cameras or one Medium style camera. Teledyne DALSA offers a number of area and line scan cameras that support this standard.
A high-performance industrial controller that enables interfacing of GigE Vision and CameraLink compatible cameras. Excellent cost savings for multi-camera vision applications.
Teledyne DALSA is one of the largest companies serving the machine vision industry and is unique in that it is vertically integrated; from sensor design and manufacture, through image capture and processing, to software for imaging optimisations and analysis.
