National Instruments has released the NI CVS-1457RT compact vision system. The device is powered by a 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor and features two independent GigE Vision ports with Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology.

The fanless NI CVS-1457RT also features FPGA-enabled I/O, which can be combined with the Vision Reconfigurable I/O (RIO) API to synchronise vision inspection results with other parts of the system, such as encoders, ejectors and proximity sensors.

The device is programmed with either NI LabView system design software or NI Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (AI). Onboard I/O includes eight isolated digital inputs, eight isolated digital outputs, two transistor-transistor logic I/O, a quadrature encoder, a VGA port, two USB ports, a serial port and a LAN port.

The NI CVS-1457RT is a part of the LabView RIO architecture, an integral part of the NI graphical system design platform and means engineers can integrate the NI CVS-1457RT into existing tool chains.
