The latest addition to Teledyne DALSA’s range of multi-camera embedded industrial vision solutions for the factory floor is the Geva 3000. Available in two versions to support GigE or CameraLink compatible camera configurations, Geva 3000 features the Gen3 Intel Core i7 processor to deliver over six times the processing performance of the entry level Geva 300 and up to three times the performance of the Geva 1000. The flexible camera interface supports line scan as well as area scan imaging.
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.
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.
