New vision and motion hardware with NI RIO technology

21 October 2011

National Instruments (NI) has augmented its reconfigurable I/O (RIO) technology offering with a reconfigurable Camera Link frame grabber for demanding embedded vision applications and a motion module for the NI CompactRIO platform. The NI PCIe-1473R frame grabber is a PC-based embedded vision board that combines field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology with a Camera Link interface to help engineers create high-performance embedded imaging and inspection applications.

The NI 9502 brushless servo drive C Series module includes six new custom NI motor options, directly from the reconfigurable CompactRIO system to address advanced motion control applications. The NI 9502 offers 4A continuous/8A peak current and multiple commutation modes. To complement the module, NI is also releasing six high-performance three-phase brushless motors designed for use with the NI 9502.

NI has also expanded its NI Smart Camera family of products, introducing seven new models that include colour and high-resolution options. The new NI 177x Smart Cameras feature a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor for increased processing power and an IP67 rating to protect the hardware from dust and water, making the cameras ideal for industrial inspection applications.

The cameras include four digital input and four digital output lines and support several industrial communication protocols including RS232 (Serial, Modbus serial) and Ethernet (TCP/IP, Ethernet/IPModbus TCP).
