09/27/2019

The IPS962-512-PoE's key features include camera communication interfaces and real-time vision-specific I/O with microsecond-scale and LED lighting control.

Online PR News – 27-September-2019 – City of Industry, California – Axiomtek, a leading design and manufacturing company of innovative, high performance and reliable PC-based industrial computer products, is proud to announce the IPS962-512-PoE, its latest vision system. The machine vision controller is powered by the LGA1151 socket 7th/6th generation Intel® Core™ or Celeron® processors with the Intel® Q170 chipset. The IPS962-512-PoE features an expansion capability, camera communication interfaces, a real-time vision-specific I/O with microsecond-scale and a LED lighting control to meet the increasingly demanding requirements in modern production plants. It is feature-rich, highly expandable and rugged for machine vision applications.

The feature-rich IPS962-512-PoE has four IEEE802.3at PoE LAN ports and four USB 3.0 ports for connection with industrial cameras. It also features front I/O connectors, including one real-time vision I/O, four PoE ports, two Gigabit LAN ports, four USB 3.0, one VGA, one HDMI, 3-pin terminal block and one audio (Mic-in/Line-out). The customizable IPS962-512-PoE has one I/O module slot with a choice of four different types of I/O modules - a 4-port RS-232/422/485 module (AX93511); a 4-port isolated RS-232/422/485 module (AX93516); a 1-port GbE Ethernet, 2-port USB 3.0 and 2-port RS-232/422/485 module (AX93519); and a 2-port isolated RS-232/422/485 and 8-in/8-out DIO module (AX93512). For expandibility, it has one PCIe x16 and one PCIe x4 expansion slot for easy installation of I/O cards and graphics cards. The IPS962-512-PoE features two swappable 2.5" HDDs for extensive storage needs.

The IP40-rated IPS962-512-PoE has dual DDR4-2133/2400 un-buffered SO-DIMM sockets for up to 32GB of system memory. This highly flexible machine vision controller is built to withstand harsh operating environments with a wide operating temperature range of -10°C to +55°C and a power input of 24V DC. It has a compact design for easy installation in space-constrained environments.

"The IPS962-512-PoE allows for a fast and accurate inspection of products on an assembly line to ensure that the desired quality is achieved with no manufacturing defects. It has a full range of isolated I/O interfaces and real-time controls essential to machine vision applications, including trigger input, LED lighting controller, camera trigger and an encoder input for conveyor tracking," said Wayne Chung, a product manager of the Vision System Division at Axiomtek. "When using the vision I/O, an incremental encoder can also be used to delay the acquisition by a number of encoder ticks corresponding to the position offset of the detector. The lighting control will be configured during the camera exposure time. The duration and dimming control are programmable and it can identify object characteristics for different inspections."

The IPS962-512-PoE is now available for purchase. For more information, please visit us.axiomtek.com or contact us at solutions@axiomtek.com.
