M100 CameraLink belongs to Tattile’s M100 range. M100 CameraLink is an industrial PC particularly designed for vision systems. Entirely “in-house”: designed, developed and manufactured by Tattile, it has four Camera Link ports that can be connected to Tattile’s or other manufacturers’ cameras; it supports Base, Medium, Full and Deca protocols.
All ports are directly connected to an FPGA of 160K logic elements; users will be able to easily and independently program it.
M100 CameraLink has a guaranteed longevity of up to ten years.
M100 CameraLink is an industrial PC thought for machine vision applications.
It has four Camera Link ports that can be connected to Tattile’s or other manufacturers’ cameras, offering customers maximum flexibility of use. It supports Base, Medium, Full and Deca protocols and you can connect up to four cameras in Base mode or two in other modes.
All ports are directly connected to an FPGA of 160K logic elements that manages the image acquisition and pre-processing. Users will be able to easily and independently program it through a specific graphical software.
All ports are Power over Camera Link (PoCL), therefore you will lead power supply, data and images transmissions with just one cable, moreover, you can also connect two USB 3.0 cameras.
The whole Tattile ‘s M100 series has a common advantage: it is a Fanless, “Plug & Play”, already completed and “Ready to Use” PC, immediately usable.
Its completely “in-house” development guarantees the life of the product up to at least ten years: Tattile’s architecture longevity translates for the OEM into a safe replicability of its machines.
M100 CameraLink boasts of latest generation Intel processors (i3 or i7, according to customer’s requirements) and installs Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) or Linux operating systems.
The open architecture allows the user to decide whether to develop the vision application using Tattile’s software platform or other manufacturers’ softwares/ libraries or to use a previously developed program.
M100 CameraLink integrates by default:
– 8 digital inputs. – 8 digital outputs. – 6 Trigger outputs (one for each camera). - 1 serial port: RS232/RS485. – 1 Line Drive Encoder Input. – 2 Ethernet ports (to connect the system to a Company LAN). – Optional: industrial Fieldbus protocols (such as Profinet, Ethercat, Profibus, etc…).
All communication interfaces are controlled by an FPGA; thanks to this architecture it is possible to work in “real time”.
The system provides a default SSD hard drives up to 64 GB of capacity and allows you to install two extra dedicated hard disks, for example: to the images storage, datas, back-up, log files.
It features two standard USB ports, an internal USB port and a Display Port video port.
The intelligent diagnostic service enables to verify the functioning of all devices and hardware; this would not be possible on common industrial PC, where the hardware components are installed at a later stage.
