EOS-1200 embedded vision system

Share this on social media:

Adlink Technology, a provider of machine vision platforms and boards, has released the EOS-1200, a powerful Gigabit PoE embedded vision system. It includes the second generation Intel Core i7 quad core processor, providing four independent Gigabit PoE (power over Ethernet) ports with data transfer rates up to 4.0Gb/s.

The EOS-1200 further supports IEEE 1588 precise time protocol, enabling synchronisation with multi-camera acquisition. With superior computing power, multi-channel support, compact size, lower unit cost and maximum flexibility, the system is ideally suited to multi-camera imaging applications such as factory automation and food and packaging inspection.

The system supports IEEE 1588 PTP technology, providing a software trigger-mode that empowers multi-camera synchronised captures. Combining IEEE 1588 and PoE support to allow a single Ethernet cable to deliver power supply, data transfer and data synchronisation, the system dramatically reduces cabling requirements compared to conventional solutions, further decreasing maintenance burdens and total cost of ownership.

In addition, the system provides smart PoE function, the application programming interface allowing users to program power status easily, especially when cameras are idle, impressively boosting energy efficiency. It also provides auto-detection to ensure compatibility with both PoE and conventional non-PoE devices.

The EOS-1200 features rich I/O capability, including four serial ports, two USB 3.0 ports, 32 PNP/NPN isolated digital I/Os and dual storage (two SATA interface, and one CFAST slot), an internal USB port, and 1 kbit programmable EEPROM. The system is therefore simple to integrate and deploy. Driver support is provided for Windows 7/XP and Embedded standard 7, in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
