EyeVBox Embedded Systems for Imaging Processing
The EyeVBox systems by EVT are specially designed to create image processing solutions. Depending on the application, the EyeVBox systems are equipped with various processors: from ATOM to Core i5 class. These processors are carried out with low power from the embedded or laptop area. Therefore the systems do not need a fan and can be operated passively cooled. So the EyeVBox systems are not only suitable for the cleanroom but also for rough environments such as areas where the dust and dirt are afflicting the filter or where those particles are seeping into the processor, which can lead to a short circuit and consequently to a loss of production. With the EyeVBox dust and dirt are easy to handle.
All EyeVBox systems are not only equipped with a Windows 7 or optionally a Linux operating system, but also with the EyeVision image processing software.
The systems stand out due to robust standard camera interfaces for either USB, GigE or FireWire. Therefore the user can choose from a quite extensive camera selection from different camera manufacturers such as The Imaging Source, IDS, BASLER, Sony, PointGrey, Smartek et al. A detailed listing of supported cameras is available on the EVT homepage.
For an easy integration the systems are equipped with a universal I/O, which has in the standard version 8 In- and Outputs in 24V Technology, as well as 2 high-speed trigger In- and flash Outputs available. Therewith it is secured that even the fastest operations are triggered accurately and that with each trigger a flash is released.
Via an additional sorting module of the I/O system, it is possible to side track a unit from the production line such as in the bottle filling production or on a rotary plate. For this purpose a output can be interfaced onto a trigger input. With the sorting module an inspection order is generated and the corresponding result is registered for each trigger. And if then the component part is passing the ejection position, the corresponding output is triggered in dependency on the result in the order register.
The EyeVBox systems are equipped with an extremely powerful hardware, which is best perfected with the EyeVision image processing software. Because with the EyeVision Software the inspection programs for the image evaluation are created by drag-and-drop function, which makes the software easy to handle. The powerful command set includes commands for measurement technology and object detection as well as color inspection and code reading (DMC, bar code, QR). A trial version can be downloaded from the EVT homepage. Therefore it is possible to try out the software on the application beforehand and even without the EyeVBox system.
The EyeVision software has available an extensive password and protocol system, which meets the requirement of the FDA C25 P11. Via the integrated web server of the EyeVision software, the solutions of the EyeVBox systems can be operated from a web server. The reduction of the software to only the essential settings also reduces the time and effort for training of the machine operator. And via the powerful Remote API it is possible to integrate the EyeVBox into a control panel.
The application area for the EyeVBox systems ranges from the automotive, electronic and pharmaceutical industry up to the semiconductor industry. Especially for the food industry a stainless steel housing is available. And corresponding camera protection casings also in stainless steel are perfecting the EyeVBox systems.
