VisionBox LE MANS

Vision computer with an 8 core ARM Cortex-A72 processor inside with several PCIe slots.

VisionBox LE MANS


The VisionBox LE MANS was invented as the world’s first vision computer with an 8 core ARM Cortex-A72 processor inside. Equipped with several PCIe slots, the system can be used for vision, automation and other camera-based systems. IMAGO offers the LE MANS configuration composed with IMAGO’s Real-Time Controller peripherals in combination with other IMAGO and qualified 3rd-party PCIe boards. Frame grabbers and/or other interface boards control up to multiple cameras.
For matrix cameras, LED Controllers could provide sufficient illumination with their current-driven outputs. An alternative configuration could use up to two RS-422 interfaces for proper synchronization to encoders. Qualified 3rd-party PCIe boards for machine communication are also possible (e.g. fieldbus). As an option, we provide timing reports that show the behaviorof e.g. trigger, grabbing of images, LED control, encoder and I/O.
The VisionBox LE MANS runs on the Linux OS and IMAGO offers a complete toolchain incl. the popular embedded Halcon vision library to develop applications efficiently.
