BOA Nexus Smart Bridge
Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and a global leader in machine vision technology, today announced the BOA NEXUS Smart Bridge, a complementary device for Teledyne’s DALSA BOA smart cameras. The BOA NEXUS Smart Bridge works with existing BOA camera systems to expand their information sharing and monitoring capabilities.
The BOA NEXUS provides six Gigabit Ethernet ports for communicating with BOA cameras and the factory enterprise. The network ports can be expanded using external switches to accommodate larger camera installations. Runtime results from each of the cameras can be displayed on a standard monitor using preinstalled client applications or custom developed programs. Images, results, and user activity can be stored on the BOA NEXUS solid state drive for record keeping.
Features and benefits of the BOA NEXUS Smart Bridge include:
- Display interface eliminates need for expensive HMIs
- Convenient access for online setup and maintenance
- Supports isolated or bridged network configurations
- Simplifies camera network setup
- Tracks user access and changes to camera solutions
- Supports results logging capability to CSV file
- Includes software emulator for offline solution editing
- DIN mountable hardware platform
- Provides storage for runtime image login
“BOA NEXUS is a complementary device that offers convenience, cost-effective integration and sharing of information between system components and operators,” said Steve Geraghty, Director of Teledyne DALSA Industrial Products. “The NEXUS software interface provides easy access to setup, maintenance and operational features of the BOA INS and IDR cameras. In addition, BOA PRO users can set up cameras using client software installed on the device and utilize compatible operator interfaces customized for their application needs.”
