Teledyne DALSA has unveiled GEVA-300, a low-cost vision system built on the Intel (News - Alert) dual-core ATOM architecture that offers low power consumption and solid performance for a wide range of machine vision applications.
The GEVA-300 is built with expandable Gigabit Ethernet camera interfaces to offer higher performance at lower cost, but also delivers space savings thanks to the new smaller, fanless form factor, tolerating harsh factory conditions and varying temperatures.
GEVA-300 comes in a 42x145x198mm, DIN mount design making it easy to mount and consumes less panel space. This new vision system accompanies six dedicated GigE ports, 2GB of high-speed DDR2 memory, 40 GB SSD storage and supports a wide variety of GigE area and line scan cameras, including Teledyne DALSA's own Genie cameras, and is offered with either iNspect Express or Sherlock software running on the Microsoft (News - Alert) Windows 7 Embedded Operating System.
The iNspect software is easy to use and offers capabilities for positioning, identification, verification, measuring and flaw detection. Included with iNspect is iLabel, an application designed specifically for the packaging industry that is used for verifying the placement and quality of labels on packaged goods.
In the case of Sherlock software, it helps users in handling more challenging inspection tasks. Both softwares help users with variety of tools and capabilities for applications requiring positioning, identification, verification, measurement, and flaw detection.
“Our new GEVA-300 system makes multi-camera machine vision installations accessible for a wide variety of applications," said Steve Geraghty, director of Teledyne DALSA''s Industrial Products. "Supported by Teledyne DALSA's iNspect and Sherlock software tools, this cost-effective, integrated solution can address the vision needs of industries such as automotive, consumer, electronics, packaging and pharmaceutical."
Teledyne plans to demonstrate GEVA-300 vision system for the first time at VISION 2012 in Stuttgart, Germany happening next month.
