The Geva (GigE vision appliance) is the latest addition to Dalsa’s platform of machine vision solutions for demanding imaging applications, available from Stemmer Imaging.

These include multi-camera embedded systems and smart cameras, all operating under common imaging software.

Geva is an embedded system designed for applications requiring powerful processing, high resolution or multiple cameras.

Geva benefits from a smaller size for easier system integration and from a dual-core processor equipped with high-speed memory resources.

Two dedicated GigE camera ports are provided, each with enough bandwidth to easily support eight 640 x 480 mono cameras imaging 60 parts per second.

The camera ports are compatible with a range of mono or colour, area and line scan GigE cameras in a range of resolutions, which can be mixed to suit application needs.

Camera expansion is easily accommodated using commercially available network technologies, allowing large configurations to be realised with lower system cost.

Geva also provides a number of external interfaces for system integration.

It includes dedicated display and USB ports for set-up and runtime control, a third Gigabit Ethernet port and a serial port for factory communication, dedicated trigger inputs for inspection timing, dedicated strobe outputs for lighting control and opto-isolated I/O for associated equipment interfacing.

Vision solutions on Geva are set up using Dalsa’s Inspect or Sherlock application software.

For enhanced versatility, applications built on other Dalsa equipment with the same camera set-up will also run on Geva.

Fully functional software emulators installed on Geva allow users to develop or debug applications offline.

The emulator maximises machine up-time during application development and maintenance.

STEMMER IMAGING is Europe’s largest imaging technology provider with headquarters in Germany and subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, France and Switzerland.

Image processing or Machine Vision is used in many different application areas – such as industrial automation, medical imaging, security and traffic technology – as a powerful and cost effective way of implementing automatic quality assurance. Even at high speeds and with stringent accuracy requirements, image processing allows 100% monitoring and thus strengthens the competitive edge of those companies using it.

STEMMER IMAGING customers have access to a wide variety of imaging products from the worlds leading manufacturers. These manufacturers represent the cutting edge of vision technology which is something that is unique in Europe. STEMMER IMAGING are the developers of the world’s leading image processing software platform, Common Vision Blox, and as a manufacturer of customer-specific products, we have a full range of in-house expertise to draw on, allowing us to supply the best possible service to our customers when choosing an imaging solution. STEMMER IMAGING does not produce turn-key solutions – instead, using our close partnerships with a large number of experienced system integrators, we can provide expert technical know-how for the planning, integration and realisation of complete solutions.
