GEVA 3000 is the newest addition to Teledyne DALSA's high-performance industrial controllers, offering excellent cost savings for multi-camera vision applications such as final inspection of large assemblies. With over six times the processing performance of the entry level GEVA 300 and up to three times the performance of the GEVA 1000, the ruggedized GEVA 3000 provides a robust and highly capable industrial vision system for applications on the factory floor.

GEVA 3000 is equipped with a low power, Gen3 Core i7 processor and high-speed system resources to effectively manage multi-camera applications. Each of the six (6) Gigabit compliant Ethernet ports internally connect through independent data lanes to alleviate bandwidth bottlenecks often associated with multi-camera acquisition. Each network port can be configured for either camera or network use and each can be expanded using external switches to accommodate larger camera or network configurations. GEVA 3000 network ports are compatible with a resolution range of mono or color area scan GigE cameras.

GEVA-3000 is available in two models, supporting either 6 high-bandwidth Gigabit Ethernet camera interfaces that significantly drive down system cost, or dual Camera Link Base / single Medium capture using Camera Link© cameras.

GEVA-3000 is equipped with a Gen3 Core i7 processor, paired with high-speed memory resources to tackle the most demanding applications. As well, its fanless design reduces downtime and maintenance costs associated with deploying standard PC solutions in harsh industrial environments.

In addition to Ethernet, GEVA 3000 provides standard external interfaces for system integration, including display, 6 USB ports and a serial port. Camera triggering, I/O and lighting control is supported using a companion breakout module. The PL-USB module provides an easy and safe way to connect factory I/O to the GEVA 3000 and associated cameras.

Vision solutions on GEVA 3000 are set up using Teledyne DALSA’s iNspect Express or Sherlock application software. Both packages offer a full complement of tools, together with interfacing and control options for both users and equipment.For performance migration, applications built on other Teledyne DALSA equipment with the same camera setup will also run on GEVA.

GEVA GEVA is a high-performance industrial controller that offers excellent cost savings for multi-camera vision applications, such as final inspection of large assemblies. As the name implies, GEVA provides expandable Gigabit Ethernet camera interfaces that significantly drive down system cost.

At the heart of GEVA is a powerful dual core processor, equipped with high-speed memory resources to tackle the most demanding applications. Two dedicated camera ports are provided, each with enough bandwidth to easily support eight 640x480 mono cameras imaging parts at 60 per second. The camera ports are compatible with a wide range of mono or color, area and line scan GigE cameras in a range of resolutions.

Aside from camera interfacing, GEVA provides a number of external interfaces for system integration. It includes dedicated display and USB ports for setup and runtime control, a third Gigabit Ethernet port and a serial port for factory communication, dedicated trigger inputs for inspection timing, dedicated strobe outputs for lighting control and optoisolated I/O for associated equipment interfacing.

Vision solutions on GEVA are setup using Teledyne DALSA's iNspect or Sherlock application software. For performance migration, applications built on other Teledyne DALSA equipment with the same camera setup will also run on GEVA.

  • Integrated 12" touch display
  • 1.6GHz dual core processor
  • Two expandable camera ports
  • Compatible with full range of GigE cameras
  • Direct connect I/O module
  • Windows 7 embedded OS
  • Choice of embedded vision application software
  • Push button display adjustments and convenient USB port on front
  • Slim-line panel or VESA mountable enclosure

The GEVA-312T is an integrated vision system complete with a 12” touch screen display, 1.6GHz dual core processor and two Gigabit Ethernet camera ports. The slim-line form factor maximizes control panel real estate for PLCs, motions controllers and non-vision related components. The GEVA-312T is a good choice for customers who are looking for a complete system that is low-cost, expandable and applicable for a wide range of vision applications.

The GEVA-312T is compatible with the full range of Teledyne DALSA Genie cameras. Applications using one or two cameras can connect directly to the Camera/LAN ports on the unit. Additional cameras can be accommodated using standard, low-cost Gigabit Ethernet switches. I/O connections, including camera trigger and light strobes, are interfaced using our standard PL-USB module. This module mounts inside the control panel and connects to one of the GEVA-312T USB ports (multiple PL-USB modules can be installed).

In addition to touch panel control, the front of the unit provides push button display adjustments and a USB port that provides convenient access for removable peripherals such as keyboard/mouse and backup storage.

GEVA-300 The new GEVA-300 is a fanless, compact vision system for multi-camera applications. Like the more robust GEVA-1000, the GEVA-300 features expandable Gigabit Ethernet camera interfaces to offer higher performance at lower cost, but also delivers space savings thanks to the new smaller, fanless form factor, tolerating harsh factory conditions and varying temperatures

Based on the Intel® dual-core ATOM™ architecture, the GEVA-300 offers robust performance for a wide range of machine vision applications at low power consumption levels. With 6 dedicated GigE ports and 2GB of high-speed DDR2 memory, the GEVA-300's processing power rivals that of the VA4x series while still offering savings in both cost and energy consumption.

The GEVA-300 supports a wide variety of GigE area and line scan cameras, including Teledyne DALSA's own Genie cameras, and is offered with either iNspect Express or Sherlock software running on the Microsoft® Windows® 7 Embedded Operating System.

PL-USB Companion I/O Module

PL-USB The GEVA-300 also accepts the new PL-USB companion I/O expansion module, allowing for easy integration of up to 4 additional Teledyne DALSA Genie cameras. The PL-USB's DIN mountable plastic enclosure makes installation simple without sacrificing valuable panel space, and its compatibility with the same cables as the GEVA-1000 as well as iNspect Express and Sherlock software ensures quick and easy integration into any GEVA-300 system.
