The EyeVision 3.2 image processing software by EVT is now also available for the EyeSpector Z series. The smart camera contains the Standard version of the software, but the command set can be extended to contain more commands according to the needs of the customer.
The hardware features of the EyeSpector Z series are for example 1/4“ and 1/1.8“ CMOS sensors and a frame rate of up to 120fps. There are five different CMOS sensors available for the customer, such as from CMOSIS, Aptina or e2v. Concerning the resolution it ranges from 752x480 pixel to 1920x1200 pixel.
The smart camera runs with a Linux operating system and besides the integrated FPGA it offers a dual-core ARM with 2x866MHz. There are two different housings available. Number one is the already well-known EyeSpector nano-housing and number two is a special housing solution with protection class IP67 and M12 connectors. The EyeSpector pro Z series can on customers demand also be delivered with integrated lens and high power LED lighting.
To increase the performance of the EyeSpector Z a FPGA can be programmed additionally. In comparison to not using the FPGA, a 10 times higher operating speed can be reached. EVT also offers other smart cameras with a freely programmable FPGA such as the RazerCam, EyeCheck 4xxx and also the EyeCheck 7xxx series.
The EyeVision software is already integrated into the EyeSpector and EyeCheck smart cameras. The EyeVision 3.2 has available the already well-known GUI (Graphical User Interface) with the drag-and-drop function. After the start of the software the user only has to capture the images and teach in the inspection programme by using the icons of the different commands. In the latest version EyeVision 3.2, the user can create their own commands with the plugin function. The created commands can be integrated into the GUI and visualised with an icon.
