EOS-1220 embedded vision system
Adlink Technology has released its EOS-1220 GigE Vision-compliant embedded vision system. The device features third generation Intel Core i7 quad core processors, four independent PoE ports, full compatibility with GigE Vision cameras and support for smart PoE APIs. With high-end CPUs and multi-channel connectivity in a compact housing, the EOS-1220 is ideally suited to multi-camera imaging applications such as 3D robot guidance.
Combining PoE and IEEE 1588 support, enabling single-cable transmission of power, signal, and data synchronisation, the EOS-1220 cuts cabling requirements by as much as 60 per cent, says Adlink. In addition, the EOS-1220 further provides smart PoE APIs allowing remote switching of PoE status. With this feature, camera power consumption is more easily monitored and controlled, stabilising camera temperature and extending system lifetime.
Additionally, the EOS-1220’s rich I/O interface, including four RS-232/422/485 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, 32 PNP/NPN isolation digital I/Os, dual storage (two SATA interface, and one CFAST slot), an internal USB port, and 1kb programmable EEPROM, make the system simple to integrate and deploy. Driver support includes Windows 8/7/XP and Windows Embedded Standard 7, and File-Based Write Filter (FBWF), providing a stable, secure, and high performance software operating environment.
