TAICENN Industrial fanless computer used in Machine vision applications

- Nov 29, 2019-

Background:

Realizing "Made in China 2025" and completing the transition from a big manufacturing country to a strong manufacturing country, intelligent manufacturing is the main direction. In the intelligent manufacturing process, machine vision mainly uses computer to simulate human visual function, that is to extract, process and understand the image information of objective things; and finally to use it for actual detection, measurement and control. As smart manufacturing intensifies, the market demand for machine vision will gradually increase.

Machine vision can be said to be the soul window of industrial automation systems. From object/barcode identification, product inspection, appearance size measurement to robotic arm/transmission equipment positioning, machine vision technology can play a big stage. In order to meet the demand for new applications, the design of industrial cameras has also taken on a new direction. In industrial manufacturing, quality control is very important to the quality level of the product. In the past, quality was deeply revived by manual inspections prior to SMART machine vision technology. However, due to the different inspection standards caused by subjective factors, the operator is fatigued after a long time of work, and the efficiency is lowered, resulting in unreasonable quality control.


Application requirements analysis:
Industry 4.0 can’t do without intelligent manufacturing, and intelligent manufacturing can’t do without machine vision. Machine vision is the necessary means to achieve industrial automation and intelligence, equivalent to the extension of human vision on the machine. Machine vision has the advantages of high automation, high efficiency, high precision and poor adaptability, which will play an important role in the realization of Chinese industrial automation. A typical industrial machine vision system includes: light source, lens, camera (including CCD camera and COMS camera), image processing unit (or image capture card), image processing software, monitor, communication / input and output unit.
Combined with the practical application requirements of the machine vision industry, a variety of cameras can perform different types of high-speed inspection; highly integrated various I / O, connected PLC, controller, lighting controller and HMI monitor; software library for remote access and Interface; operates in harsh industrial environments; good compatibility between controllers, cameras and software systems.
