High Performance Smart Camera S200 Series
Belonging to the wide range of Tattile’s products dedicated to Machine Vision, S200 is a Smart Camera designed for applications in the most diverse industrial sectors including pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, 2D & 3D analysis. It is equipped with powerful Image Processing architecture, with a Dual Core processor and an FPGA of 85 K elements.
Completely “in-house”: designed, developed and manufactured by Tattile; S200 is characterized by highly sophisticated technology contained in a product of extremely limited dimensions.
S200 is a Smart Camera, technologically advanced, solid and compact, designed to meet the main requirements of machine vision.
Smart Camera S200 is mainly a “All in One” product: in the camera body there is a CPU that processes data, captures images, performs the check-ups required by the application, sends the results to the user’s machine. S200 is equipped with powerful Image Processing architecture, with a Dual Core processor and an FPGA of 85 K elements.
Its 4.2 MegaPixels sensor enables the user to capture extremely small objects.
The unique combination of sensor and process architecture allows this product to obtain an extremely high FPS, in the amount of 180 fps in Full Frame Mode.
The acquisition speed can be further increased by partializing the acquisition, therefore reducing the size of the image (windowing).
The computing power, due to the CPU Dual Core architecture and to FPGA which enables you to capture and process images at high speed, makes S200 a top range product on the market in regards to performance level, despite its modest size.
Thanks to these characteristics, S200 is ideally suited for applications where high speed is required.
The camera is equipped with a series of communication interfaces:
- 1 Gigabit Ethernet port.
- 1 Encoder Input.
- 1 RS232 / RS485 serial port.
- 2 Digital Inputs.
- 2 Digital Outputs.
- 2 Strobe Outputs.
All communication interfaces are handled by FPGA, in order to ensure “real time” management. The contained FPGA manages directly acquisition and pre-processing, to reduce CPU workload. CPU will be exclusively dedicated to the image analysis. As already provided for other series of Tattile’s industrial range, even in Smart Camera S200, the FPGA will be programmed directly by the user in “easy” mode, using a graphic software.
S200 features Linux, the open operating system, therefore the customer can create the application using Tattile’s software or other manufacturers’ compatible software libraries.
Smart Camera has a storage capacity of up to 32 Giga, thanks to its SD card.
The IP67 enclosure rating allows its installation in strict and difficult environments, such as in the presence of dust, dirt and water.
- Powerful image processing: Dual Core Cortex-A9 processor and Xilinx Artix 85 Kle FPGA
- High-resolution: 4.2 Megapixels global shutter CMOS image sensor
- Ultra-high-speed: 180 frames per second at full resolution.
- Programmable FPGA for image acquisition and preprocessing
- IP-67 Rated enclosure
- Complete interface and communication capabilities: Gigabit Ethernet, digital I/O, RS232/485 serial ports, Encoder
- Open system with Linux O.S.
The fast acquisition and processing of high-resolution images requires a powerful electronic architecture. The S200 Smart Camera features a Dual Core Cortex-A9 800MHz CPU and a Xilinx Artix 85K Logic Cells FPGA working closely together. Thanks to Tattile’s technology based on FPGA, this smart camera can guarantee the real-time execution of critical functions such as image capture, image pre-processing, I/O and incremental encoder management.
With a 4.2 Megapixels resolution and a speed of 180 frames per second, S200 Smart Camera opens new horizons for your applications.
The frame rate of the camera can be further increased thanks to the windowing features: capturing only a portion of the sensor allows higher frame rates for smallest regions of interest.
The image acquisition and image preprocessing are performed by dedicated FPGA in real time.
Using graphical tool, it is possible to program the FPGA for image preprocessing.
Thanks to the use of Linux O.S., it is possible to develop Vision Application with Tattile software or third parties library / software
IP-67 rated housing of S200 Smart Camera allows to be installed even in harsh environment.
Interface and Communication
The integration of the S200 Smart Camera is made easy by the full-featured set of interfaces available: Gigabit Ethernet, RS422 incremental encoder input, RS232, RS485, 2 inputs, 3 outputs, and 3 strobe outputs.
Direct encoder input
If the vision system must be interfaced to an incremental encoder, the line-drive RS422 encoder input of the S200 allows a perfect synchronization of the system without the need of other interface devices.
