Embedded Vision System supports PoE

PoE support reduces cabling complexity for M40 processor by eliminating the necessity for camera power cables; reducing costs, enhancing system reliability.


PPT Vision - Embedded Vision SystemPPT VISION’s IMPACT M-Series Embedded Vision System features Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, delivering network reliability and significantly simplifying the installation and maintenance of networked devices. Using standard CAT 5 Ethernet cables, system cameras are powered from the embedded M40 processor—which eliminates the need for a separate computer for programming and processing and individual data and power cables. Limited cable wiring decreases installation and wiring expenses, while providing a more clear and safe workspace for operators and equipment. PoE allows for increased system flexibility with the ability to install virtually anywhere, allowing devices to be located at distances over 100 meters from a power supply.

Using uninterrupted power supply (UPS), PoE ensures the reliability and availability of the IMPACT M-Series cameras operating on the M40 processor. This combination facilitates continuous operation, eliminating power interruptions and costly system downtime.

“PoE support delivers a simple and reliable camera solution for the IMPACT M-Series Embedded Vision System,” said PPT VISION Chief Executive Officer Bob Heller. “Combining power and data into one cable allows for a scalable and flexible networking infrastructure, while providing significant time and cost savings.”

Delivering increased precision and speed to automated inspection, guidance and identification production processes, the IMPACT M-Series Embedded Vision System allows up to four M-Series Smart Cameras to perform independent asynchronously-triggered inspections. Utilizing the single M40 vision processor, the IMPACT M-Series eliminates the need to purchase and install multiple cameras—saving additional costs and reducing setup and networking time. The IMPACT M-Series benefits manufacturing industries ranging from electronics, pharmaceutical, and medical devices to consumer products and automotive. Typical applications include inspecting electronic connectors, correct part seating during die stamping, and detection of fill level and cap position on bottles.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
