GigE-ready vision appliance
DALSA Corporation recently launched a new Gigabit Ethernet (GigE)-ready vision appliance called GEVA, which stands for GigE Vision Appliance. Compatible with the full range of DALSA Genie and Spyder3 cameras, GEVA offers an expandable performance platform for a multitude of industrial inspection tasks.
The GEVA platform is well suited to multi-camera vision applications, such as final inspection of large assemblies. The high bandwidth GigE camera ports are compatible with a wide range of mono or color, area and line scan GigE cameras, which can be mixed to suit the application need. Camera expansion is easily accommodated using commercially available network technologies
GEVA provides a number of external interfaces for system integration. It includes dedicated display and USB ports for setup and run-time control, a third Gigabit Ethernet port and a serial port for factory communication, dedicated trigger inputs for inspection timing, dedicated strobe outputs for lighting control, and opto-isolated I/O for associated equipment interfacing.
