Allows a single Ethernet cable to deliver power supply, data transfer, and data synchronisation
Machine vision platforms and boards provider ADLINK Technology has released the EOS-1200, the Gigabit PoE embedded vision system to implement the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 quad core processor, providing four independent gigabit PoE (power over Ethernet) ports with data transfer rates up to 4.0 Gb/s.
The EOS-1200 further supports IEEE 1588 precise time protocol, enabling synchronisation with multi-camera acquisition and also 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 EOS-1200 reduces cabling requirements compared to conventional offerings, further decreasing maintenance burdens and total cost of ownership.
In addition, the EOS-1200 provides smart PoE function, the application programming interface (API), allowing users to programme power status easily and 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. Driver support is provided for Windows 7/XP and Embedded standard 7, in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
ADLINK Digital Imaging product manager Neil Chen said the EOS-1200 is fully compatible with GigE Vision cameras and GigE Vision analysis software, meaning that customers benefit significantly by its time-to-market and ease-of-deployment advantages, with no compatibility concerns.
"Featuring the top-of-the-line 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core CPU, five-year long-life cycle support, and equipped with two USB 3.0 ports, the EOS-1200 is second to none in the industry," said Chen.
