DALSA Introduces Next Generation Smart Camera for Single Point Machine Vision Inspection

BOA in handBILLERICA, Mass. - DALSA Corporation announced the availability of the BOA vision system, a highly integrated smart camera that comprises all of the elements of an industrial machine vision system. Powerful and quick-to-deploy, the BOA is ideal for automated quality inspection applications and factory automation.

BOA, an all-in-one machine vision solution is smarter, easier to use, and more flexible than previous generations of smart cameras. It is the first smart camera in its class to incorporate multiple processing engines. This enables algorithm optimization via DSP, application management via CPU, and sensor management via FPGA. It is also the first smart camera that offers truly embedded application software, which is easily set-up through a standard web browser. No software to install - no version control problems. BOA delivers greater flexibility for its users via a rugged, easy-to-mount enclosure, built-in factory communications, and a low deployment cost.

Steve Geraghty, director of DALSA's Industrial Products group, states, "BOA sets a new benchmark for single point inspection cameras in the industry. It offers advanced vision capabilities that are easy to integrate at an affordable price, while consuming very little space and power."

The ultra small BOA has been specifically designed for industry. Its 44 mm cube form factor is perfect for tight-fit applications. 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.

Building on the strength of its software, DALSA has evolved and embedded the complete functionality of iNspect software in BOA. iNspect is ideal for both first time and experienced vision users alike; it offers excellent inspection capabilities that can be readily applied across a multitude of applications. This easy-to-use, graphical point and click interface, allows users to rapidly prototype and deploy solutions, and it is available with a fully featured emulator for offline application development and debugging.
