The addition of 25GigE cameras to their product line up has been announced by Emergent Vision Technology (EVT). The recently released 25GigE Vision successor includes all GigE benefits, but with a 2.5x increase in data and frame rates over 10GigE.
The new interface standard, available with both EVT’s BOLT area scan and ACCEL line scan cameras, hopes to be the answer to the increasing demands in resolution and speed that drive industrial automation and cutting edge consumer vision.
Both EVT’s BOLD and ACCEL 25GigE devices provide extreme high speed interfacing with 3.125Mb/s, to maximise the throughput in real time applications. Until now, this speed was only attainable with four channel CoaXPress. The new interface requires only a single fibre cable compared to the Quad CoaXPress interface that required four cables.
The use of SFP28 fibre cables plus step-up transceivers provide cable lengths up to ten kilometres. Handling and integration are becoming much easier and cost effective; the 25GigE interface provides superior capability with a great combination of speed and distance.
Darren Bessette, Category Manager Devices at FRAMOS stated: “25GigE’s Differentiator is a combination of speed, handling, and reliability. With EVT’s new BOLT and ACCEL series, users can take full advantage of the latest generation of high performance sensors with higher resolution and faster frame rates.
“The 25GigE interface opens multiple opportunities for factory automation, smooth industrial processes, broadcast, video conferences and real time applications, including inspection and robotics. Today, EVT’s 25GigE solutions are the fastest and easiest way to produce ultra high speed imaging without latency, over long distances, and with easy integration and operation.”
EVT offers dedicated NIC card solutions to reduce CPU loading, and manage video triggering and streaming. Data from the camera is processed directly on the NIC for smooth integration and operation of the 25GigE vision solution. CPU processing remains under 5% and the remaining CPU capacity is free for other processing or intelligence, as required.
The new interface offers network support and synchronisation via the IEEE1588 standard and is GigE Vision and GenICam compliant. The provision of IP trust and the reliable synchronisation of the GigE Vision standard allows the 25GigE Vision interface to be an easy upgrade to improve all vision systems, with an extra measure of speed and innovation.
The industry and product experts at FRAMOS have applied their profound knowledge of camera and interface technology to support customers with the integration of the new high speed devices into their applications and projects. This expertise is provided together with additional services like development support, customisations, and logistics.
