ADLINK Unveils Advanced Embedded Vision System for Factory Automation

ADLINK Technology, a company specializing in machine vision platforms and boards, has launched a new, advanced Gigabit PoE (power over Ethernet) embedded vision system called the EOS-1200. It features the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 quad core processor that offers four gigabit PoE ports and transmits the data by up to 4.0 Gb/s.

The embedded vision system supports IEEE 1588 accurate time protocol, which allows multi-camera synchronization. A combination of multi-channel support, excellent computing power, compact size, maximum flexibility and reduced unit cost makes the product suitable for multi-camera imaging applications like food and packaging inspection and factory automation.

The embedded vision system also supports the IEEE 1588 PTP technology, allowing a software trigger-mode that enables multi-camera synchronization. The combination of IEEE 1588 and PoE support in the embedded vision system enables the Ethernet cable to deliver data transfer, power supply and data synchronization. This significantly minimizes the cabling requirements when compared to standard systems and in turn reduces maintenance cost.

ADLINK’s Product Manager of digital imaging, Neil Chen stated that the GigE Vision standard is quite popular in the machine vision industry. The company’s new embedded vision system can be used with GigE Vision analysis software and GigE Vision cameras, allowing customers to experience its ease-of-deployment benefits. Chen added that the EOS-1200, equipped with sophisticated 2nd generation Intel Core i7 quad-core CPU and two USB 3.0 ports, offer a streamlined solution for machine vision applications. .

The EOS-1200 also offers smart PoE function, which enables users to easily program the power status, particularly when cameras remain idle, thus enhancing power efficiency. It has an auto-detection feature, which means it can be used with both PoE and non-PoE devices. The embedded vision system has I/O capability, including two USB 3.0 ports, an internal USB port, four serial ports, 32 PNP/NPN isolated digital I/Os, one CFAST slot and two SATA interface (dual storage) and 1 kbit programmable EEPROM. These capabilities make the EOS-1200 easy to integrate and offer software license authentication and copy protection for system development.
