Multi Camera Vision Systems

Teledyne DALSAs Vision Appliances are multi camera embedded machine vision solutions that have been designed to satisfy your current and future inspection needs. They provide the ease-of-use, performance and flexibility required to meet the diverse requirements of industrial applications, while accommodating the needs and experience of end users.

Genie Teledyne DALSA’s Genie cameras combine standard gigabit Ethernet technology with Teledyne DALSA’s Trigger to Image Reliability framework to dependably capture and transfer images from the camera to the host PC. The cameras are based on high quality, highly sensitive CCD and CMOS sensors with global shutters and are available in a variety of resolutions ranging from VGA to 1600 x 1200 in both color and monochrome.

Color Genie cameras feature white balancing and advanced Bayer conversion to produce crisp and accurate color images. 

The Genie family includes the C models (color, e.g. C1024), the M models (monochrome, e.g. M1024), and the H models (high speed, e.g. HM1024). With lens options that include mounts for C- or CS-type lenses and right-angle lens mounts, the Genie family offers the flexibility for almost any application. 

GEVA 300 The new GEVA-300 is a fanless, compact vision system for multi-camera applications. Like the more robust GEVA-1000, the GEVA-300 features expandable Gigabit Ethernet camera interfaces to offer higher performance at lower cost, but also delivers space savings thanks to the new smaller, fanless form factor, tolerating harsh factory conditions and varying temperatures.

Based on the Intel® dual-core ATOM™ architecture, the GEVA-300 offers robust performance for a wide range of machine vision applications at low power consumption levels. With 6 dedicated GigE ports and 2GB of high-speed DDR2 memory, the GEVA-300s processing power rivals that of the VA4x series while still offering savings in both cost and energy consumption.

The GEVA-300 supports a wide variety of GigE area and line scan cameras, including Teledyne DALSAs own Genie cameras, and is offered with either iNspect Express or Sherlock software running on the Microsoft® Windows® 7 Embedded Operating System.

PL-USB Companion I/O Module The GEVA-300 also accepts the new PL-USB companion I/O expansion module, allowing for easy integration of up to 4 additional Teledyne DALSA Genie cameras. The PL-USBs DIN mountable plastic enclosure makes installation simple without sacrificing valuable panel space, and its compatibility with the same cables as the GEVA-1000 as well as iNspect Express and Sherlock software ensures quick and easy integration into any GEVA-300 system.

GEVA 100 GEVA is a high-performance industrial controller that offers excellent cost savings for multi-camera vision applications, such as final inspection of large assemblies. As the name implies, GEVA provides expandable Gigabit Ethernet camera interfaces that significantly drive down system cost.

At the heart of GEVA is a powerful dual core processor, equipped with high speed memory resources to tackle the most demanding applications. Two dedicated camera ports are provided, each with enough bandwidth to easily support eight 640x480 mono cameras imaging parts at 60 per second. The camera ports are compatible with a wide range of mono or color, area and line scan GigE cameras in a range of resolutions.

Aside from camera interfacing, GEVA provides a number of external interfaces for system integration. It includes dedicated display and USB ports for setup and runtime control, a third Gigabit Ethernet port and a serial port for factory communication, dedicated trigger inputs for inspection timing, dedicated strobe outputs for lighting control and optoisolated I/O for associated equipment interfacing.
