Compact Smart Camera S50 Series
Belonging to the wide range of Tattile’s products dedicated to Machine Vision, S50 is a Smart Camera designed for applications in the most diverse sectors including pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, Track&Trace. It is equipped with powerful Image Processing architecture, with a Single Core processor and an FPGA of 28 K elements.
Completely “in-house”: designed, developed and manufactured by Tattile; S50 is characterized by highly sophisticated technology contained in a product of extremely limited dimensions.
S50 is a Smart Camera, technologically advanced, solid and compact, designed to meet the main requirements of machine vision.
Smart Camera S50 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, and sends the results to the user’s machine. S50 is equipped with powerful Image Processing architecture, with a Single Core processor and an FPGA of 28 K elements.
Smart camera S50 is available with a CMOS sensor on VGA resolution; the unique combination of sensor and process architecture allows this product to obtain a high FPS, in the amount of 120 fps. The acquisition speed can be further increased by partializing the acquisition, therefore reducing the size of the image (windowing).
The camera is equipped with a series of communication interfaces:
- 1 Gigabit Ethernet port.
- 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. S50 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.
- Best Performance: Single Core Cortex-A9 processor and Xilinx Artix7 28 Kle FPGA
- VGA global shutter CMOS image sensor
- Internal FPGA for image acquisition and preprocessing
- Compact size: only 45x45x41 mm
- IP-67 Rated enclosure
- Complete interface and communication capabilities: Gigabit Ethernet, digital I/O, RS232/485 serial ports
- Open system with Linux O.S.
The S50 Smart Camera features a Single Core Cortex-A9 800MHz CPU and a Xilinx Artix 28K 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, and I/O.
With a VGA resolution and a speed of 120 frames per second, S50 Smart Camera is suitable for all vision system application. 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.
Thanks to the use of Linux O.S., it is possible to develop Vision Application with Tattile software or third parties library / software
Interface and Communication
The integration of the S50 Smart Camera is made easy by the full-featured set of interfaces available: Gigabit Ethernet, RS232, RS485, 2 inputs, 2 outputs, and 2 strobe outputs.
