Overview
National Instruments offers GigE Vision cameras from Basler Vision
Technologies. These cameras incorporate the highest-quality Sony CCD
sensors with resolutions from VGA to 2 megapixels and feature a small,
rugged design to offer easy integration into your machine vision system
for your industrial applications. These GigE Vision cameras use the gigabit
Ethernet bandwidth to achieve full-frame speeds up to 70 fps. They also
support long cable lengths (up to 100 m) for maximum flexibility. Basler
cameras are thoroughly checked for quality and calibrated for consistent
performance and reliability. In addition, they are compatible with NI vision
hardware and NI Vision Acquisition software.
Basler Hardware and NI Software
The Basler scout cameras offered by National Instruments are tested
with NI GigE Vision frame grabbers and NI Vision Acquisition software
to ensure full compatibility and performance. NI Vision Acquisition
software includes all the functions for enumerating and setting up the
camera’s capabilities, such as programmable shutter speed. It also
provides a single API to support all GigE Vision and IEEE 1394 cameras.
By using NI Vision Acquisition software functions, you can acquire and
save images from GigE Vision or IEEE 1394 cameras without changing
your program, therefore reducing your development time. You can easily
integrate these GigE Vision cameras into PCI- and PXI-based systems
using NI gigabit Ethernet interfaces or directly through the gigabit
Ethernet port on existing PCs and PXI controllers. The NI Vision
Acquisition software takes full advantage of NI gigabit Ethernet
interfaces, minimizing CPU usage for image acquisition from GigE Vision
cameras. With Basler cameras and NI Vision Acquisition software,
National Instruments provides all the tools you need for your machine
vision applications.
GigE Vision Benefits
Gigabit Ethernet is a camera bus technology for machine vision systems.
With relatively high bandwidth, long cable lengths, and wide usage in
consumer and industrial applications, gigabit Ethernet shows promise for
security and long-distance vision applications. The GigE Vision standard
helps regulate plug-and-play behavior, device discovery, error handling,
and secure image transfer. It also offers the ability to reach 100 m with
inexpensive cabling. In addition, GigE Vision works well for machine
vision applications requiring multiple cameras. With the use of Ethernet
hubs or the NI PCIe-8235 quad-port gigabit Ethernet interface, you can
control many cameras from a single PC or PXI system.

driver because it features all of the tools you need to acquire, save, and
display images from thousands of cameras. The easy-to-use functions
and example programs offer quick setup with NI Measurement &
Automation Explorer and development of image acquisition applications
in NI LabVIEW and LabWindows™/CVI, Visual Studio .NET, ANSI C, or
Visual Basic.

Machine Vision Cameras for GigE Vision
National Instruments vision software includes hundreds of image processing and analysis functions. A subset of the tools available in the
Vision Development Module and Vision Builder AI are shown below.
Pattern and Geometric Matching
Bar Code Reader and Grader
Learn and locate objects and patterns in your
images. The National Instruments patented
matching algorithms locate patterns fast with
very high accuracy.
Read 1D bar codes as well as 2D codes like Data
Matrix and PDF 417. You can decipher codes
applied through ink jets, thermal transfer, laser
etching, or dot peen.
Optical Character Recognition/Verification
Spatial Calibration
NI OCR functions use a trainable OCR algorithm
specifically designed to identify and verify all
types of fonts, characters, and symbols despite
poor and inconsistent image quality.
Using spatial calibration functions, you can
calibrate your image to take accurate, real-world
measurements from images, regardless of camera
perspective or lens distortion.
Particle Analysis
Image Arithmetic and Logic Functions
Use particle analysis to detect connected regions
or groupings of pixels in an image and make
selected measurements of those regions. Choose
from more than 80 unique measurements that
return data in both real-world and pixel values.
Operators perform basic arithmetic and logical
operations on images. Use operators to add,
subtract, multiply, and divide an image with other
images or constants.
Color Inspection
Coordinate Systems
Color matching quantifies which colors and how
much of each color exist in a region of an image
and uses this information to check if another
image contains the same colors in the same ratio.
Set up coordinate systems to ensure that all your
measurements move with the object within the
field of view.
Edge Detection
Image Filters and Frequency Analysis
Use the edge detection tools to identify and locate
discontinuities in the pixel intensities of an image.
Find edges to align, measure, or detect features in
the image.
Frequency filters, such as the fast Fourier
transform (FFT), alter pixel values with respect to
the periodicity and spatial distribution of the
variations in light intensity in the image.
Object Classification
Image Segmentation
NI vision software comes with several options to
segment and partition images into related components.
Segmentation is an important part of many imaging
applications that need to extract certain features or
objects in order to process them further.
Classification is a tool for identifying an unknown
object by comparing its significant features to a
set of features that represent known samples.
Gauging
Golden Template Comparison
Use dimensional measurement or gauging tools to
obtain quantifiable, critical distance measurements
such as distances, angles, areas, line fits, circular
fits, and counts.
Find defects in an image by comparing a perfect
(golden) sample to all subsequent samples. Golden
template comparison detects surface defects, label
misprints, and overall quality issues.
