Vision system for multi-camera applications
The GEVA-300 by Teledyne Dalsa is a vision system for multi-camera applications that use an expandable platform for a multitude of industrial inspection tasks and it is compatible with the company's Genie cameras.
The GEVA-300 system offers excellent cost savings for multi-camera vision applications, such as final inspection of large assemblies. The six high bandwidth Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) ports are compatible with a wide range of GigE cameras, which can be mixed to suit the application need, and the fanless design of the GEVA-300 means it is rugged and reliable enough for harsh factory applications. Camera expansion is easily accommodated using commercially available network technologies, allowing large configurations to be realized with much lower system cost. The GEVA-300 is based on the Intel dual-core ATOM architecture that offers low power consumption and solid performance for a wide range of machine vision applications.
The GEVA-300 provides a number of external interfaces for system integration. In addition to the six Gigabit Ethernet ports (four of which are typically used for connecting cameras), it includes dedicated display and USB ports for setup and run-time control, and a serial port for factory communication. Camera triggering, strobe outputs and opto-isolated I/O are interfaced using the companion PL-USB module. Vision solutions on the GEVA-300 are setup using Teledyne Dalsa's iNspect or Sherlock application software. Both software packages offer a wide selection of tools and capabilities for applications requiring positioning, identification, verification, measurement, and flaw detection.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
