Axiomtek Introduces Its Feature-Rich, Highly Expandable Machine Vision System with Real-time Vision I/O and Poe LANs - The IPS960-511-PoE

The IPS960-511-PoE’s key features include camera communication interfaces and real-time vision-specific I/O with microsecond-scale and LED lighting control.

City of Industry, CA, May 08, 2019 --( Axiomtek, a leading design and manufacturing company of innovative, high performance and reliable PC-based industrial computer products, is proud to announce the IPS960-511-PoE, its highly integrated vision controller optimized for machine vision applications. It features a multi-core CPU, with a choice of the LGA1151 socket 7th/6th generation Intel® Core™ or Celeron® processors (up to 65W) with the Intel® H110 chipset. The intelligent vision system is rugged, feature-rich and customizable. It includes Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 for optimum security. The IPS960-511-PoE’s key features include camera communication interfaces and real-time vision-specific I/O with microsecond-scale and LED lighting control, making it an ideal all-in-one solution that addresses the needs of various machine vision platforms, and acts as a building block for deep learning and automated optical inspection (AOI) applications.

The IP40-rated IPS960-511-PoE features four IEEE802.3at PoE LAN ports and four USB 3.0 ports for connection with various cameras. It is feature-rich with a front I/O design, which includes one real-time vision I/O, two Gigabit LAN ports, four PoE ports, four USB 3.0 ports, one VGA, one HDMI, one 3-pin terminal block and one audio (Mic-in/Line-out). The IPS960-511-PoE‘s vision I/O offers a wide range of isolated I/O interfaces and real-time controls for machine vision applications, including trigger input, LED lighting controller, camera trigger and an encoder input for conveyor tracking. The intelligent vision platform is also customizable with one I/O module slot. It has a choice of four different types of I/O modules – a four-port RS-232/422/485 module (AX93511); a four-port isolated RS-232/422/485 module (AX93516); a one-port GbE Ethernet, two-port USB 3.0 and two-port RS-232/422/485 module (AX93519); and a two-port isolated RS-232/422/485 and 8-in/8-out DIO module (AX93512).

Another feature that the IPS960-511-PoE has is its lighting dimming control to identify object characteristics for different inspections. It also has two swappable 2.5" HDDs for extensive storage needs. The IPS960-511-PoE has dual DDR4-2133/2400 unbuffered SO-DIMM sockets for up to 32GB of system memory. The highly flexible IPS960-511-PoE is built to withstand harsh operating environments with a wide operating temperature range of -10°C to +55°C and a power input of 24V DC. Its compact design allows easy installation in space-constraint environments.

"The intelligent IPS960-511-PoE meets the increasingly demanding requirements of high quality platforms with rich features and great flexibility in modern production plants. The systems must enable fast and accurate inspections of the products being assembled to ensure that the desired quality is achieved with no manufacturing defects," said Wayne Chung, a product manager of the Vision System Division at Axiomtek. “Our IPS960-511-PoE provides high level of operational control for connected devices for functions required by their AOI applications, for example, the capturing and processing of images as well as measuring product characteristics determined by the process for quality control. Our system is designed to support our customer’s operations, allowing them to optimize their performances and accuracy levels to enhance their bottomline and competitive advantage.”
