Adlink Technology (San Jose, CA) has released the EOS-1200, a Gigabit PoE embedded vision system that implements the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad core processor, providing four independent gigabit PoE (power over Ethernet) ports with data transfer rates up to 4.0 Gb/s.The EOS-1200 supports IEEE 1588 PTP technology, enabling a software trigger-mode that empowers multi-camera synchronized captures. The technology combines IEEE 1588 and PoE support to allow a single Ethernet cable to deliver power supply, data transfer, and data synchronization. The EOS-1200 also provides auto-detection to ensure compatibility with both PoE and conventional non-PoE devices.
The EOS-1200 features I/O capability, including 4 serial ports, two USB 3.0 ports, 32 PNP/NPN isolated digital I/Os and dual storage (two SATA interfaces and one CFAST slot), an internal USB port, and 1 kbit programmable EEPROM. Driver support is provided for Windows 7/XP and Embedded standard 7, in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
