The Vision Box connects – depending on model and configuration – via 10GigE, 5GBase-T, GigE Vision, Camera Link and/or USB 3.0 to cameras and other peripheral devices. The integrated Real-Time Communication Controller RTCC ensures proper timing between all machine devices and sensors – even with Windows or Linux. To avoid complex cabling, the cameras can be connected with a single cable – transferring trigger, data and power not only with Camera Link but also with GigE. Besides the cameras, the RTCC also controls the integrated LED Controllers, Digital I/Os and Encoder interfaces. The images are processed on the latest Intel-, ARM- or real-time processors running on Windows 10 IoT, Debian-Linux or a real-time OS. (Embedded) GPUs are available as well. The compact and fanless housing allows the integration in nearly every machine.
