Courtesy: National InstrumentsThe high-performance NI 177x Smart Cameras feature monochrome or color CCD image sensor options and a powerful Intel Atom 1.6 GHz processor for automated inspection applications. The rugged mechanical design, including IP67 housing, M12 connectors, and lens cover, protects the cameras against harmful ingress of water (up to 1 m immersion) and dust. The cameras also include digital I/O lines (4 input, 4 output), an RS232 serial connection, Gigabit Ethernet connection, and VGA video output. Programming the cameras is accomplished using Vision Builder for Automated Inspection or the LabVIEW Vision Development Module, which both feature hundreds of built-in machine vision and image processing functions.

NI CompactRIO is an embedded control and acquisition platform, featuring a reconfigurable FPGA and real-time embedded controller, ideal for machine vision applications. It can connect to GigE Vision cameras and use the NI Vision Development Module libraryNI CompactRIO is an embedded control and acquisition platform, featuring a reconfigurable FPGA and real-time embedded controller. The new Multicore CompactRIO systems are ideal for applications that involve machine vision, including medical devices, autonomous robotics, and industrial monitoring. Using the dual gigabit Ethernet ports, you can connect to a wide range of GigE Vision cameras and perform fast, high-resolution image acquisition, and perform image processing in LabVIEW using hundreds of image processing algorithms in the NI Vision Development Module library. Multicore CompactRIO is available with LabVIEW Real-Time OS or Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7).
