Teledyne DALSA GEVA-300: the compact vision system

6 Mar 2013

Teledyne DALSA has announced the compact, low-cost vision system for multi- camera applications. Compatible with the full range of GigE Vision cameras, the GEVA-300 offers an extremely cost-effective and expandable platform for a multitude of industrial inspection tasks.

The GEVA-300 system offers excellent cost savings for multi-camera vision applications, such as final inspection of large assemblies. The six high bandwidth Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) ports are compatible with a wide range of GigE cameras, which can be mixed to suit the application need and the fanless design of the GEVA-300 means it is rugged and reliable enough for harsh factory applications. Camera expansion is easily accommodated using commercially available network technologies, allowing large configurations to be realised with much lower system cost.

Compact system for up to four GigE Vision cameras

The GEVA-300 is based on the Intel® dual-core ATOM™ architecture that offers low power consumption and solid performance for a wide range of machine vision applications. The user is provided with 2 GB program memory, 40 GB SSD storage, six Gigabit Ethernet ports (four of which are typically used for connecting cameras), three USB ports, one RS-232 interface and VGA display. The compact vision system with its measurements of 42 mm x 145 mm x 198 mm works with Win7 Embedded 64-bit O/S and can also be expanded with an optional PL-USB companion module that offers I/O expansion and easy integration of up to four GigE Vision cameras.

Choose from two software packages

Vision solutions on the GEVA-300 are set up using Teledyne DALSA's iNspect or Sherlock application software. The iNspect software is easy to use and requires little or no prior vision experience, while the Sherlock software offers greater flexibility to tackle more challenging inspection tasks. Both software packages offer a wide selection of tools and capabilities for applications requiring positioning, identification, verification, measurement, and flaw detection.
Supported by Teledyne DALSA’s iNspect and Sherlock software tools, this cost- effective, integrated solution can address the vision needs of industries such as automotive, consumer, electronics, packaging and pharmaceutical.

The powerful GEVA-300 systems are available from all STEMMER IMAGING offices in Germany, Great Britain, France, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
