DALSA: Multi-Camera Vision Appliance
The VA40 provides end users and system integrators with a high performance, compact machine vision solution for multiple camera inspections. This product has been designed to offer flexibility, speed and choice of camera to match your application need.
The VA40 provides multiple camera inputs that allow you to inspect different views of the same part or even different parts simultaneously.
This integrated functionality provides a cost-effective and less complex solution than comparable smart camera implementations. In addition the unit is compatible with different cameras types that afford you flexibility in design and upgrade options as your application needs change.
Interfacing the VA40 is easy. The unit is fully equipped with industrial grade Inputs and Outputs that are broken out to removable screw terminal connectors or opto-isolation modules. Serial communication options include RS-232 USB and Ethernet for connecting into the factory network. All physical connections are located on the VA40 rear panel with status lights available on the front.
Application setup software is preinstalled and ready to run thus eliminating installation and revision control problems. The VA40 offers two distinct software interfaces called iNspect and Sherlock. iNspect provides application versatility and ease-of-use allowing you to setup and deploy a vision solution in a matter of minutes. For more complex tasks Sherlock provides even greater flexibility and control giving you the tools and capabilities at your fingertips to apply to almost any application. An additional benefit of the VA40 is that it supports 3rd party software. This enables you to use the VA40 to control other devices associated with the application.
