Configurable Embedded Vision System Provides Reliable Image Capture - Elma’s high performance OptiSys integrates four Camera Link ports

FREMONT, Calif., June 24, 2016 – Elma Electronic Inc. now offers a rugged, high performance embedded vision system that incorporates four configurable Camera Link ports and a front-removable, multi-terabyte storage bay with SATA III interface, essential for high speed imaging data offload and transfer.

Powered by an Intel Quad Core i7 processor, the new OptiSys-5101 features a high definition image frame grabber ideal for optical inspection and video capture. A miniPCIe expansion site facilitates easy I/O customization.

Designed to withstand severe environments, the compact system is ideal for a wide array of industrial, medical and harsh applications requiring high speed image inspection, analysis and measurement.  These include manufacturing inspection and monitoring; security and surveillance; vehicular traffic monitoring and management; healthcare imaging; and transportation security systems. Scientific uses include particle analysis, counting and tracking.

To accommodate varying data transfer rates, the four Camera Link ports are configurable as four base ports, two full ports or two base ports and one full port for data processing in excess of 5 Gbits/s. Standard features include camera frame rate sequence capture, triggered image sequence capture and camera integration and async reset control. This flexibility enables the unit to capture images at high frame rates and resolutions that meet a specific application need.

Housed in a SWaP-optimized enclosure, the OptiSys-5101 is both small and lightweight, while providing high capacity, multi-terabyte removable storage to maximize image data collection and streamline offload operations. Thousands of HD images can be stored.

The new OptiSys-5101 is designed and manufactured in the US and shipped fully tested and integrated for out of the box functionality, complete with ready-to-run image analysis software.

The existing HDMI port as well as two USB 2.0 and two GigE RJ45 I/O interfaces are complemented by the miniPCIe site that allows additional application I/O customization.

Elma’s experience in small form factor system design and embedded computing helps to keep integration costs low, while delivering rugged, high performance computing platforms. Inquire about the different CPU, storage capacity and additional I/O options available on the new OptiSys-5101.
