Ultrafast 4-Channel Gigabit PoE Embedded Industrial Vision System
3 May 2012
The EOS-1200 also supports the IEEE-1588 (precise time protocol), enabling real-time synchronisation of multi-camera industrial image acquisition with very high accuracy, making it ideal for use in industrial automation. This could, for example, synchronise machine vision applications such as multi- camera defect inspection, barcode inspection and OCR/OCV reading, improving overall product quality and increasing efficiency on the production line. IEEE1588 PTP technology allows a single Ethernet cable to deliver both synchronization and image data, which combined with PoE functionality, simplifies system installation and lowers maintenance costs.
The EOS-1200 features rich I/O capability, including four RS-232/485 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, 32 PNP/NPN isolation digital I/Os and dual storage (two SATA interface, and one CFast slot). A lockable internal USB port, and 1 kbit programmable EEPROM, make the EOS-1200 ideal to integrate, deploy, and manage copy protection or authentication of software licenses for system development.
