Mar 2004Vision & Control GmbH
The Vicosys multicamera system from Vision & Control GmbH connects four USB and FireWire digital cameras with Pictor Ethernet smart cameras in a single machine vision system. Parameterization is achieved via the VCWin user interface. Images and results from digital and smart cameras can be processed together, as in 3-D machine vision applications. The Vicorem remote control interface enables communication between VCWin and Vicosys, via Ethernet, USB or RS-232, so that a test object can be viewed from different angles. Images stored in the digital camera can be retrieved by the Vicosys system at any time. The industrial-quality embedded PC runs under Linux and does not require a cooling fan. Operating voltage is between 16 and 30 VDC.
