What Would You Do With the Power of a PC and PLC in an Industrial Camera?

XIMEA White Paper Asks

Münster, Germany, (PresseBox) - Would you improve your product quality and cut waste by retrofitting production equipment with a box the size of two decks of playing cards to deliver automated in-line inspection? Would you use your favorite full-featured OS, machine vision software program, and multiple high-resolution cameras instead of an XVGA smart camera processed by a limited version of your camera vendor's image processing software? Would you cut out thousands of dollars from your capital expenditures by including a PLC inside the camera along with the PC for real-time downstream product sorting and robot guidance?

These are just a few examples of how customers can benefit from a new class of industrial PC camera described in "PC Cameras: PC-Host Vision Performance Without Sacrifice," a new white paper from XIMEA GmbH, manufacturer of industrial, smart camera, and scientific imaging equipment.

In the past, machine vision customers have had to choose between fully functional, space-hogging PC-host systems and compact, smart cameras that are not all that smart. Until now, cutting-edge microprocessors capable of 10s of Gigaflops per second generated too much heat for a smart camera form factor. This new white paper explains how products such as XIMEA's new CURRERA line of PC cameras use high-speed, low-power Intel Atom and AMD Fusion microprocessors with zero copy transfers to achieve upwards of 90 Gigaflops - enough to match a PC-host system with enough spare horsepower to include an integrated PLC with microsecond latency.

Download XIMEA's newest white paper and automatically get entered to win a CURRERA-R starter kit while learning more about the capabilities of PC cameras, including support for fully functional and embedded versions of Windows 7 and Linux OS; user-selectable, full image processing software libraries; and integrated PLC and PC peripheral device support.


XIMEA GmbH believes that the best industrial, smart, and scientific cameras offer the highest levels of processing power, compatibility, and support at a competitive price. That's why for more than 20 years, XIMEA has designed the smartest, most compact industrial cameras for machine vision applications in motion control, assembly, robotics, and industrial inspection and process control, as well as security and surveillance cameras and scientific cameras for life-science, medical, and defense applications. XIMEA is a proud member of AIA, EMVA, USB3 Vision and ONVIF associations and standards groups. Learn more about XIMEA at www.ximea.com.
