SAN JOSE, USA: ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading provider of machine vision platforms and boards, announced the release of their latest addition to their product line of embedded vision platforms, the EOS-2000, an embedded vision system that features an Intel Core2 Duo processor and four independent analog NTSC/PAL ports with real time image acquisition rates up to 120 fps.
The EOS-2000 is ideal for industrial automation applications that require high computing power and multi-camera imaging, such as inspection and alignment.
The EOS-2000 is a compact-size 200 (W) x 165 (D) x 85 (H) mm (7.9" x 6.5" x 3.3") vision system supporting four vision channels, making it ideal for space critical applications. Compared with smart cameras solutions in the market, the EOS-2000 provides a lower unit cost per channel with more flexible system configurations, as well as software development kit support that allows users to develop their own machine vision solutions.
The EOS-2000 also features rich I/O support, including two RS-232/422/485 ports, four USB ports, 32 isolated digital I/O lines, and dual storage options (a SATA interface and a CompactFlash slot) for factory-floor networks. By selecting long-life embedded components and incorporating system monitoring components to monitor CPU temperature, fan speed, and system responsiveness, the EOS-2000 provides a very robust and reliable platform for mission critical applications. ADLINK's embedded vision system is a ready-to-deploy vision solution.
"As simultaneous vision inspection is a common requirement on a production line, the ADLINK EOS-2000 offers a cost-effective solution for multi-camera vision applications. Customers can reduce their total system costs with the EOS-2000 through its higher computing power, multi-camera support, lower unit cost, and development software support compared with traditional industrial computers with frame grabbers and smart cameras," stated Neil Chen, Vision Solutions Product Manager at ADLINK.
The EOS-2000 system can be developed around Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows XP Embedded (XPe), with support for file-based write filter (FBWF) to provide a stable and secure software operating environment.
The EOS-2000 is currently available starting from $1,750.
