How to Select the Right Hardware Components for Your Vision System
An image processing system needs more than just a camera. Only a light source, a matching lens, reliable data transfer and additional components such as frame grabbers, PC cards and power supplies turn a vision system into a functioning unit. When it comes to industrial equipment and computer vision systems, all components must be absolutely reliable. If a system used in a 24-hour operation fails because inferior or incompatible components are used, this can quickly lead to high costs.
Matt Breit, Applications Engineering Manager at Basler, talks about the main components a vision system is based on besides a camera. He will give general advice on how to design a vision system and explain what to consider for each hardware category while choosing specific components.
The webinar will discuss the following hardware components:
- Data and trigger cables
- Interface devices such as frame grabbers or pc cards
- Peripheral devices
- Mechanical components
Additionally we will show you how Basler’s online guidance tool, the Vision System Configurator, helps you to put together matching components for your vision system.
