NI EVS-1464RT Embedded Vision System Highlights

  • Real-time machine vision system
  • High-performance, multicore processor for fast inspections
  • Connectivity to multiple cameras for simultaneous inspections (GigE Vision and IEEE 1394 standards)
  • Configure with Vision Builder for Automated Inspection or program with Vision Development Module
  • Reliable, rugged, industrial system with no moving parts (fanless and solid-state hard drive)
  • High I/O count for synchronization and industrial communication

The EVS-1464RT features a variety of camera connectivity options. Engineers can use many different types of cameras to perform simultaneous inspections ranging from high-resolution area scan to high-speed line scan and from color to infrared. The EVS-1464RT also includes a wide range of digital I/O and industrial communication options that make it possible for the system to communicate and integrate with automation devices such as programmable automation controllers, programmable logic controllers, human machine interfaces, sensors, and actuators.

The EVS-1464RT can be configured with NI Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (AI), an interactive software environment for building, benchmarking and deploying machine vision applications without programming. With this menu-driven software, engineers can build complex machine vision applications that not only incorporate image processing algorithms but also advanced decision making with looping and branching using the built-in state diagram editor. For more advanced applications, the EVS-1464RT also can integrate with NI LabVIEW graphical system design software and the NI Vision Development Module, which is the comprehensive library of image processing functions. Because both software packages work with all NI vision hardware, engineers easily can manage and maintain multiple hardware systems, choose the appropriate hardware for new applications and switch between both software options with minimal effort.
