    Product Highlights

    Deterministic Trigger I/O Technology

    DIO cards with change-of-state (COS) interrupt support are generally used for trigger/strobe control in vision systems. The interrupt latency introduced in operating system, however, increases the difficulty of an accurate timing control for strobe/trigger signals.

    Neousys’ Deterministic Trigger I/O, or DTIO, is a technology to provide a deterministic timing correlation between input and output signals. It utilizes a standalone microprocessor with highly-optimized algorithm to collaborate with platform and DIO circuit.

    Users can configure output delay/duration for multiple DO channels (e.g. strobe and camera trigger) to respond a trigger signal on specific input channel (e.g. proximity sensor) at a resolution of 25 microseconds.

    Integrated Gigabit PoE and USB3.0 Camera Interfaces

    Nuvis-3304af integrates four GigE PoE ports and four USB 3.0 ports for camera connectivity. Its IEEE 802.3af-compliant PoE port delivers 15.4 W of power and 1000 Mb/s bandwidth. USB 3.0, as an emerging camera interface, supports up to 5 Gbps signaling for high-speed data transmission. In addition, Nuvis-3304af features a unique per-port PoE power on/off control function for fault recovery operations.

    Patented Expansion Cassette

    For vision systems require other camera interfaces, Nuvis-3304af incorporates Neousys’ patented Cassette to accommodate other interface cards such as Camera Link, CoaXPress and analog frame-grabber. You can also integrate a motion control card into Nuvis-3304af to build up an all-in-one machine vision system.
