The BOA M1280 vision system is a highly-integrated optical inspection
tool for quality inspection and factory automation. It comprises all the
elements of an industrial machine vision system in a tiny, smart-camera-style
Why is this smart camera, really smart?
DALSA's all-in-one machine vision solution, the BOA
M1280 monochrome smart camera offers superior image quality
at a resolution of 1280 x 960 and delivers up to 24
frames-per-second. It is the first camera in its class to provide flexibility
by incorporating multiple processing engines into its design which enable
algorithm optimisation via DSP, application management via CPU and sensor
management via FPGA.
It is also the first smart camera that offers embedded application
software which is easily set-up through a standard web browser.
As the BOA comes bundled with DALSA’s intuitive and versatile iNspect
application software, (see below)
there is no other software to install and consequently no version-control
problems or software incompatibilities between the PC and the camera.
Specifically designed for harsh factory floor environments and being easy
to use and inexpensive, the BOA M1280 delivers greater flexibility for
its users via a rugged, easy-to-mount enclosure, built-in factory communications,
quick start-up and low deployment costs. Easy connection to the network
is provided via Ethernet cable.
High resolution means attention to detail
High resolution sensors (1280 x 986) provide greater measurement accuracy
and are able to distinguish very small features that, if missed, could
render a product defective. Consequently, the opportunity for quality
output is maximised.
Other important features
The IP67-rated housing means that the camera can be directly deployed
in harsh, wash-down environments. This is particularly useful to meet
cleanliness standards in the food and pharmaceutical industries, and eliminates
the need for a separate, costly protective enclosure. BOA’s small
form factor and easy mounting capabilities allow it to integrate easily
into existing production lines, machinery or moving equipment.
What can BOA provide?
Boa offers scalable vision solutions to satisfy a wide range of application
needs from positioning robotic handlers to complete assembly verifications.
Designed and ruggedized for harsh environment factory floor deployment,
BOA is a truly exceptional all-in-one intelligent vision system.
iNspect allows users to setup and deploy solutions
with little or no prior machine vision knowledge. The iNspect development
interface and runtime engine is embedded within the BOA camera and the
software is launched via web browser.
