The NI CVS-1457RT also features FPGA-enabled I/O, which can be combined with the easy-to-use Vision RIO API to tightly synchronize vision inspection results with other parts of the system, such as encoders, ejectors and proximity sensors. The NI CVS-1457RT is programmed with either
NI LabVIEW system design software or NI Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (AI).
The NI CVS-1457RT is a part of the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture, an integral part of the NI graphical system design platform. A modern approach to designing, prototyping and deploying embedded monitoring and control systems, graphical system design combines the open LabVIEW programming environment with commercial off-the-shelf hardware to dramatically simplify development, so engineers can combine powerful vision tools, I/O, industrial communication, data logging and human machine interface into a single environment.
“The CVS-1457RT is a giant step forward for NI compact vision systems,” said Jamie Smith, director of product marketing for embedded systems at National Instruments. “I don’t think there’s a better vision system out there for engineers and scientists involved in machine building, automated inspection, manufacturing or quality assurance.”
- Form Factor: Small, rugged and fanless, the NI CVS-1457RT is ideal for industrial applications.
- PoE Technology: The NI CVS-1457RT reduces cabling complexity and is compatible with the latest low-cost PoE cameras on the market and non-PoE GigE cameras.
- I/O and Synchronization: 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.
- Programmable With LabVIEW: Engineers can enjoy the productivity benefits of the LabVIEW RIO architecture and easily integrate the NI CVS-1457RT into existing toolchains.
