Decentralised hardware with PoE+

Vision over Ethernet (VoE) is a PC-based image processing concept from VisionTools based on decentralised hardware. The system contains specially developed hardware, which is perfectly matched and offers many advantages.

  • The control cabinet can be omitted, saving floor space and air conditioning.
  • Low component diversity, thus fewer spare parts
  • Can be extended almost at will without retrofitting
  • Ready-to-install cables in standard lengths to reduce installation effort
  • Power supply of the peripheral devices via PoE+ possible
  • Fast data transmission via 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink Port 
  • 2D cameras with different sensor resolutions 1.6 - 12 Mega Pixel and 3D scanner usable

Cameras and 3D-Scanner

  • GigE-cameras
  • Cyclospotter
  • 3D-cameras

Machine Interfaces

  • Profinet
  • TCP/IP Client-Server
  • OPC-Classic
  • OPC-UA
  • RFC 1006

  • VoE-SlyBox - evaluation computer for image analysis and is connected to the machine control for data exchange.
  • VoE-PowerSupply - power supply for the PoE switch and any additional devices.
  • VoE-AI Box - powerful graphics processing unit (GPU) for evaluating images with artificial intelligence
  • VoE-NETBox - new PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) switch with two 10GigE uplink ports and eight GigE ports for cameras and lights
  • VoE-cameras - in a protective housing to grab the images from test parts, with up to 12 megapixels.
  • VoE-MDL - module lights with High Power LED illuminate the scene to be recorded

The connection of further NETBox modules in line topology allows an almost unlimited extension of the system.
