T2IR is a unique approach from Teledyne DALSA which provides tools to control, monitor, audit, and debug the flow of data in machine vision systems, effectively revealing what is happening inside the component parts. This prevents many errors before they happen and makes the system more reliable, which in turn delivers more uptime, more productivity, and lower costs.
T2IR stores images temporarily in onboard memory to overcome unexpected transfer bottlenecks and avoid data loss. That means no lost data, no false data and a clear source to identify and track any errors. T2IR ensures robust and reliable operations to produce repeatable results, and it does so in a non-intrusive manner that does not interfere with other system applications.
Device status can be displayed via colour coded flashing LEDs on hardware products. These are indispensable tools when diagnosing issues at a distance from a host PC or before the PC is booted. T2IR also includes standalone GUI tools which are part of Teledyne DALSA’s Sapera LT SDK. These tools can be run concurrently with user applications without interfering with the normal operations. The T2IR functions included in the GUI tools are also available via an API as part of the Sapera LT SDK. Users can directly incorporate these functions into their applications for seamless indication of device status.
A new 16 page T2IR technology primer explains in detail how this technology works and how to maximize its effectiveness.
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.
