A PC-development platform with the full library of powerful Cognex vision tools
GigE Vision digital cameras connect directly to a standard GigE network card on PCs. The high-speed GigE Vision interface uses Gigabit Ethernet protocol to transmit monochrome or color images with resolutions from 640x480 up to multi-megapixel. Cognex supports the GenICam standard, ensuring compatibility with a wide selection of cameras.
The Cognex 8704e GigE Frame Grabber is a new 4-port GigE card available for use with Cognex and third-party cameras. It is the recommended GigE interface card for all new vision software applications going forward for organizations building their own industrial PCs for machine vision. In addition, the Cognex Vision VC5 Vision Controller contains four GigE camera connections and is available for users looking for a pre-qualified, ready-to-go, Cognex trusted brand vision system. Both of these products provide the integrated license security you need to run Cognex Designer and newer versions of VisionPro software (VisionPro 8.3 and higher.)
Cognex MVS-8600™ series frame grabbers provide the highest bandwidth digital acquisition using the latest Camera Link technology. These frame grabbers are ideally suited for high-speed and high-resolution machine vision applications requiring rapid processing of large amounts of monochrome or color image data. They also feature on board I/O, and support for both PCI and PCIe buses. The MVS-8602e also supports Power over Camera Link.
