10GigE Cameras from Emergent Vision | Speed is everything.
What is 10GigE?
10GigE (a.k.a. 10 Gigabit Ethernet) is the successor to 1GigE (1 Gigabit Ethernet) which is the leading interface for machine vision applications. 10GigE, as the successor, provides all the same benefits of 1GigE but with a tenfold increase in data-rate which leads to a ten-fold increase in frame rate. 10GigE, as with 1GigE, is an industry standard which has been around for years and is managed/produced by the IEEE 802.3 working group. The standard is used in applications such as telecom, data communications, industrial, military, etc., and now we leverage the benefits of this globally accepted cross industry technology for machine vision applications.
Does GigE Vision work for 10GigE?
Yes. GigE Vision (the machine vision specific interface standard) regardless of its version supports Emergent 10GigE Vision cameras. The later versions add some additional 10GigE specific elements which are not critical for the operation of Emergent 10GigE cameras with various GigE Vision compliant software such as NI Labview, MVTecHalcon, NorpixStreamPix, etc.
The Benefits of 10GigE Cameras
10GigE cameras can be used in a wide range of machine vision applications. Below are some advantages 10GigE cameras have over 1GigE - as well as other types of machine vision cameras.
Data-rates: 10GigE cameras offer unmatched data rates. This allows for faster frame rates and a more effective use of the latest sensor technology for better overall vision and imaging.
Low Latency: typical 1GigE cameras have IP forwarding steps, which introduce 50-125 µs of latency. The speed 10GigE cameras provide allow for reduced latency to 5-50 µs, which makes them ideal for real-time video applications.
Long Cabling: 10GigE cameras can operate with CAT6A cables up to 100 meters long without the use of extenders or repeaters. Longer cable lengths simplify camera installation, especially for applications utilizing multiple 10GigE cameras.
Reliability: bit errors can compromise the integrity of image data of some machine vision interfaces (CameraLink). 10GigE cameras can correct errors in real-time.
Lower Cost: the ease of installation and lack of expensive cabling makes 10GigE cameras less costly to integrate and operate when compared to CameraLink or CoaXpress cameras.
10GigE cameras offer several distinct advantages over other types of machine vision cameras: ten-fold increase in speed, simplified cabling and reliable performance, making 10GigE cameras among the highest performing machine vision cameras available.
