NI Announces Rugged Compact Vision System for USB3 Vision Cameras

NI CVS-1459RT delivers quad-core Intel Atom Processor, USB 3.0 camera ports and FPGA-enabled I/O

Munich, (PresseBox) - NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of solutions that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world's greatest engineering challenges, today announced a compact solution for high-speed vision applications. The NI CVS-1459RT is a small, rugged vision system with a quad-core Intel Atom processor and two dedicated USB 3.0 ports for USB3 Vision cameras. 

"The NI Compact Vision System is my go-to solution for vision applications where reliability and uptime are key," said Robert Eastlund, vice president of sales for Graftek Imaging Inc. "Now I can leverage the easy connectivity and high throughput of USB3 while taking advantage of new features for high-performance processing and HMI integration. The NI CVS-1459RT enables high-resolution, high-speed industrial vision solutions." 

The NI CVS-1459RT is programmed with either LabVIEW system design software or Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (AI). Engineers have the option of using LabVIEW FPGA to further customize the FPGA-enabled I/O and tightly synchronize vision inspection results with other parts of industrial systems, such as encoders and proximity sensors. 

The NI CVS-1459RT is based on 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 interfaces (HMIs) into a single environment. 

Key Benefits

- The rugged form factor is ideal for industrial applications up to 55 ºC
- Synchronization with automation devices for camera and lighting triggering via onboard industrial I/O
- High-bandwidth camera interface with dual USB 3.0 ports for compatibility with the latest low-cost USB3 Vision cameras; ability to use ports with peripherals such as external storage for logging data
- Processing power with quad-core Intel Atom processor and 64-bit NI Linux Real-Time OS
- Board-level versions available for OEM applications
