Next-Gen Vision System Remembers More

Teledyne DALSA describes its next-generation GV 4000 vision system as compact and affordable and offers more memory resources and more power-enabled camera ports over the GV 3000, making it suited for applications using multiple large format Genie Nano cameras. The 4000 model is also runs cooler than its predecessor. With over eight times the processing performance of the entry level GV 300 and greater than four times the performance of the GV 1000, the ruggedized GV 4000 provides a viable solution for applications on the factory floor, including final inspection of large assemblies.


The GV 4000 is equipped with a low power, Gen6 Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM. Each of the four Gigabit-compliant Ethernet camera ports connect internally through independent data lanes to alleviate bandwidth bottlenecks and each port is expandable by using external switches to accommodate larger camera configurations. The camera ports are compatible with a range of monochrome or color area or line scan GigE cameras, including Teledyne DALSA’s latest high-resolution Genie Nano and Linea models. The GV 4000 also provides two Gigabit-compliant network ports that can be used for interfacing additional cameras or 3rd party equipment.
