How to install Rasperry Pi with Daheng Imaging USB3 Machine Vision Camera How to install Raspberry Pi C++ and Python SDK for industrial vision cameras? In this article we will show video tutorials on how to install the Daheng Imaging Python and C++ SDK on a Raspberry Pi. All required drivers can be found in the download section of our website. Our GigE and USB3 industrial vision cameras do work with a raspberry pi. We have even tested multiple 5MP, 10MP, 18MP and 20 Megapixel industrial vision cameras on a single Raspberry Pi. Please note that a Raspberry Pi3 has only a USB2 an 100mbit ethernet port. Therefore the framerate will be lower. The Raspberry Pi4 has a USB3 and GigE port. On the Raspberry Pi 4, the USB3 port can achieve a maximum of 300mbit. This means that a 20MP industrial vision camera can run at max 15fps.

How to select a machine vision camera interface (USB3, GigE, 5GigE, 10GigE Vision)? Machine vision camera Interface whitepaper This article will provide a deeper inside in what the benefits and downsides are of each type of machine vision camera interface, so you can select the right interface for your machine vision application. It has to be noted that GeT cameras only supplies USB 2.0 , USB 3.0 , GigE , 5GigE and 10GigE machine vision cameras and the article will mainly be focused on these five industrial machine vision interfaces. However in the table below we have incorporated also other interfaces to make the overview of industrial machine vision camera interfaces complete.     USB2 USB3 FireWire GigE CameraLink Coaxpress 5GigE 10GigE Bandwidth (Megabyte/s) 40 400 80 100...

Raspberry Pi with 20MP industrial camera Arm embedded platforms are very popular for embedded vision. Many of these platforms have a USB2, USB3 and or GigE ethernet port. Our USB3 and GigE Vision Cameras work with these ARM embedded platforms. The Raspberry Pi, that has a USB2 port, even works with our USB3 cameras on reduced frame rate. Which embedded board to select with USB3 Vision Camera There are many embedded boards available in the market that work with our USB3 Vision Cameras. The following ARM platforms were extensively tested with our machine vision cameras: - NVIDIA Jetson TX1/TX2 - NVIDIA Tegra TK1 - Toradex Apalis TK1 on Ixora Carrier Board - Raspberry Pi 3B, incl. support of the camera module. However other popular embedded boards are: - Odroid XU4 - NanoPi M4 - NVIDIA Jetson Nano - Firefly We especially like the Raspberry Pi for low end...

Machine-Vision-Applications Machine Vision Application in the Pharmaceutical Industry Pharmaceutical industry is a quality critical industry because it has close ties with people's life and health. A Vision inspecting system is often applied on the assembly line. The typical inspected objects usually include capsule, injection, bubble cap, label of the package and etc. All Daheng Imaging cameras undergo thorough critical tests to ensure that they can meet the industrial and professional requirements under the tough conditions. Pharmaceutical production usually does not take place in a comfortable lab, but reliable inspection results in a tough environment are a guarantee for the drug quality. To get the reliable inspection results, Daheng Imaging cameras offer outstanding quality images with high-performance digital interfaces , as well as rapid trigger...

Quickstart, 5 steps to trigger LED from Vision Camera using strobe controller

  Vision Camera Specialist     18-01-2019     Comments (0)

Quickstart, 5 steps to trigger LED from Vision Camera using strobe controller How to connect and trigger a LED light source with a machine vision camera from Daheng Imaging using an industrial strobe controller . We have explained it in 5 simple steps. This is applicable to both USB3 and GigE machine vision cameras that have a trigger output. As additional hardware we have used a 12V powersupply, a Power LED and a triggerable industrial strobe controller, the ACC-MV-LED-STROBECONTROLLER-V1 . Step 1: Program the triggerable industrial strobe controller We are using in our example an ACC-MV-LED-STROBECONTROLLER-V1 industrial strobe controller that can be triggered. A nice feature of this strobe controller is that you can program it, using the dipswitches, without the need of connecting the strobe controller to a pc. Most industrial strobe controllers can be triggered and have at least 4...
